What Should I do Following a Motorcycle Accident?

A: We’ll assume for your safety’s sake that you have already visited, or are in the process of being cared for by, a family physician or emergency room doctor. If you have not, we highly recommend seeking medical attention as soon as possible. Following that, if you are viewing this page, it means your accident was severe enough to warrant the authorities attention. If you have not spoken with the police yet, now is the time to do so. Additionally, you will want to collect and hold onto any documentation taken from the scene, such as photos, videos and witness information. Once these initial steps have been taken, contact the Grant Law Office to explore potential next steps.

What if I am Partially to Blame For The Collision?

A: If the accident was your fault this does not exclude you from taking legal action. In such cases the court will take all the facts into consideration, including your role in the collision. Ultimately your percentage of blame will be deducted from the potential compensation. This is known as comparative negligence. So, if 50 percent of the accident was your fault, you would receive 50 percent of the final settlement.

What if I Wasn’t Wearing a Helmet at The Time of the Accident? Can I Still File?

A: Yes. Despite the fact that you were not wearing a safety helmet, as required by law, you are still entitled to file a personal injury claim. However, this fact will weigh heavily on your case and could diminish your potential settlement.

Can A Passenger on my Motorcycle File a Claim as Well?

A: Yes, and they are encouraged to do so, as injuries sustained by passengers are often significantly greater than the driver of the motorcycle.

When Should I Contact an Atlanta Motorcycle Injury Attorney?

A: We recommend as soon as possible for a number of reasons. The sooner you are able to speak with one of our Atlanta personal injury attorneys and begin building a case around your claim, the better your chances will be at a successful outcome. Additionally, the state of Georgia maintains a statute of limitations on all claims. Failing to meet the deadline can mean a total loss of compensation. Call the Grant Law Office today at (866) 249-5513 or (404) 995-3955 and schedule an appointment before it becomes too late.
