Accidents involving Motorcycle Drivers

Most motorcyclists have specialized training in dealing with traffic flow and do not weave in and out of lanes, but that is unfortunately not what the public, including jurors, believe. They see motorcycle drivers are reckless. This could not be further from the truth!

On the roadways of Georgia an appreciable number of motor vehicle crashes occur due to distracted drivers, who are focusing more on their cell phones, the coffee in their hand, or getting to their next destination. Most auto crashes with motorcyclist occur because a driver took his eyes off the roadway, they were following too closely, or they were tired or failed to completely check their surroundings. We all must learn to share the road. Motorcycles are everywhere.

Accidents involving All Motorists

While a motor vehicle crash can be catastrophic for cyclist, they can likewise be damaging and deadly for all driver crashes, especially those involving big trucks and tractor trailers. Due to the weight and sheer size of a semi-truck major damage to any other vehicle, pedestrian, or motorcycle that crosses their path can be caused. When drivers are inexperienced, intoxicated, or careless, or if the truck was badly loaded or poorly maintained, it could cause a serious accident.

All truck companies, operators, and drivers have a duty to adhere to the rules of the road, as well as state and federal trucking regulations. When negligence occurs and rules are broken, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Accidents involving semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, Mac trucks, and other large vehicles are often caused by the following:

  • Tired or distracted drivers
  • Improperly maintained vehicles
  • Loss of load or haul
  • Poorly loaded or secured cargo
  • Tire, brake, or other mechanical failure
  • Loss of control
  • Rollover accidents from lane changes
  • Head-on or rear-end collisions

Unfortunately, trucking companies typically have substantial insurance coverage and teams of attorneys to fight personal injury claims laid against them. In order to go up against these trucking companies or any insurance company, who believes you, as an injured motorist are not entitle to full compensation for your injuries, you need to work with an experienced and committed accident lawyer. Attorney Thurston Lopes is prepared to provide you with the guidance, representation, and comprehensive help you need to fully recover no matter what type of motor vehicle crash you experience.
