Fatal Motorcycle Accidents: Seeking Justice When A Loved One Is Killed
When a motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident, the injuries can be devastating and even deadly. With an office in Macon, we at AA Law have been fighting for injury compensation in Georgia since 1992, and we have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
We pursue wrongful death claims for fatal motorcycle accidents. If you have lost a loved one in a deadly motorcycle accident, we want to help.
Motorcycle Accidents: The Statistics Are Deadly
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), only 3 percent of all registered vehicles include motorcycles, and only 0.6 percent of all of the miles traveled by vehicles in the United States are traveled by motorcycles. Despite these minute numbers, a 2020 study concluded that motorcycles were involved in 14 percent of all traffic fatalities and 18 percent of occupant fatalities. In addition, motorcycle fatalities seem to be on the rise as compared to previous years.
It is not hard to understand why the injuries are more severe and deadly in a motorcycle crash than in other types of motor vehicle accidents. Most often, a motor vehicle crash that involves a motorcycle will include a larger vehicle, like a car or truck. The driver or passenger on a motorcycle has less protection than those in a car or truck.
