Experience And Support For Motorcycle Injury Victims In The Marietta Area
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2011 over 4,600 individuals were killed in motorcycle accidents and over 81,000 individuals were injured.1 Despite efforts to make the population more aware of the presence of motorcycles on the roads, the number of motorcycle fatalities more than doubled from 2000 to 2010.2 While overall traffic fatalities saw a slight decline across the state of Georgia last year, motorcycle deaths and injuries remain a serious problem in Marietta and the in metro Atlanta community.
Dangers To Atlanta Motorcyclists
Despite continued efforts to make sure that the general population is aware of the presence of motorcycles on Georgia roads, our clients throughout the metro Atlanta area continue to report driving trends that are extremely dangerous to motorcycle riders. Unfortunately, when a bike rider is in an accident, he or she is likely to experience significant injuries with long-term consequences. Federal reports from NHTSA indicate that 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in a significant injury or death, while only 20 percent of car accidents result in similar consequences. Wrecks that result in minor property damage to cars often cause death and permanent injury to motorcycle riders.
