The roads around Columbus offer many wonderful opportunities to ride a motorcycle. However, even if you take every possible precaution to provide for your safety and ride responsibly, you may still be involved in an accident.

Of course, one of the principal risks to motorcycle riders are other motorists. Collisions between bikes and cars rarely end well and can result in life-changing injuries. A Columbus motorcycle accident lawyer could help you hold negligent drivers responsible for your losses and fight to protect your rights. Reach out to a dedicated personal injury lawyer.

Common Results from Motorcycle Accidents

Even a seemingly minor incident between a motorcyclist and another driver can have serious effects on a rider’s health. A mere nudge can cause a rider to lose their balance and tip over. This even includes situations where an incident does not involve direct contact.

Naturally, high-speed collisions can be devastating. Typical examples of physical injuries that may result from these incidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Severe cuts, scrapes, and bruising
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Separated joints
  • Amputations

Of course, many of these injuries can also result in severe mental health concerns. Often, plaintiffs experience post-traumatic stress disorder, flashbacks, and serious pain and suffering. Finally, the extent of one’s injuries may result in missed time at work or even a permanent disability. A lawyer could help measure a plaintiff’s damages following a motorcycle accident and to demand proper compensation following those losses.

Working to Prove Liability in Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcycle accidents are subject to a legal theory known as modified comparative negligence. According to state law, if a court decides that a plaintiff is more than half to blame for an accident, that court cannot award any compensation. Additionally, if the court believes that a plaintiff has contributed less than half of the fault for the incident, that court must reduce the award by the percentage of the plaintiff’s shared fault. O.C.G.A. §51-12-33 is the State’s statute concerning modified comparative negligence.

As a result, it is essential to provide evidence that proves a defendant to be solely at fault. In a motorcycle accident claim, evidence can include police reports, traffic camera footage, dashcam footage, and third-party witness statements. A Columbus motorcycle accident lawyer could take the lead in gathering this evidence and using it to establish a defendant’s full liability.

With the help of an attorney, you may be able to gather the evidence needed to press a claim and collect vital compensation without ever going to court.
