Motorcyclists Are Far More Likely to Be Seriously Hurt

Even though motorcycles are only 2% of registered vehicles in Georgia, riders are 11% of total traffic fatalities and 21% of total driver fatalities. Motorcyclists are 29 times more likely to die in a crash than a passenger car driver. Nationally, and in Georgia, the safety situation has deteriorated recently for motorcyclists. Fatalities reached an all-time high in 2021, with 5,932 motorcyclists losing their lives in accidents.

Part of the reason why motorcyclists are more likely to be seriously injured is that drivers do not exercise the proper level of care on the road. These days, many drivers are distracted behind the wheel, with their eyes on the phone instead of the road. Drivers need to be extra careful around motorcycles because they are harder to see. Bikes are not at eye level with a passenger car, but it does not excuse drivers from their obligation to exercise reasonable care.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

There is little to protect a motorcycle driver from serious injury in a crash. Even if they wear a helmet and necessary safety gear, they would still be directly struck by the car and be thrown to the ground.

Here are some common motorcycle accident injuries:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Road rash (burns on the skid from contact with concrete)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Organ damage

Maximizing Your Financial Compensation in a Motorcycle Accident Case

After a motorcycle accident injury, you are likely dealing with high medical bills at the same time that you cannot work. You are looking to recover all possible financial compensation to cover all your damages.

You would look to the driver’s insurance policy to pay for your damages. If you are able to prove that the driver was at fault, you could receive the following damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Your settlement value is directly tied to the extent of your physical injuries. Even your pain and suffering damages depend on the amount of your medical bills. Since motorcycle accidents cause more serious injuries, it follows that the average settlement is larger than in other motor vehicle accidents. However, you would only get the financial compensation that you can secure from the insurance company.

You Must Battle the Insurance Company

You are always up against one roadblock in motorcycle accident cases. The insurance company has a natural bias against motorcyclists that stems from their own financial self-interest. Knowing that they would have to pay, the insurance company tries to blame the motorcyclist at every turn. They even make lower settlement offers to try to reduce their own financial exposure.

Much comes down to the negotiating process in a motorcycle accident case. Your attorney would advise you to reject settlement offers that do not fairly compensate you. The insurance company needs to fear the alternative in order to raise their offer. Here, the alternative is being sued and at risk of having to pay even more money. 

You need a tough attorney in a motorcycle accident case. Insurance companies know exactly who is across the table from them. They know attorneys by their reputations because they see many of the same lawyers. They may treat you with more respect when you have an attorney whom they know and fear.
