Bicyclist in Critical Condition after Georgia Crash

By Grant Law Office on January 14, 2013

A 66-year-old Canton man was seriously injured in a Georgia car accident when his bicycle collided with a Chevrolet pickup truck. According to a news report in The Canton-Sixes Patch, the bicycle accident occurred near the on-ramp to northbound Interstate 575 on the Cumming Highway in Canton. Officials say the driver of the truck that struck him remained at the scene of the crash. The cyclist was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition. It is not clear if the driver will be cited for the collision.

Georgia Bicycle Accident Statistics

According to the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), there were 937 Georgia bicycle accidents in the year 2006. From the years 2000 to 2006, 6,797 bicyclists were involved in Georgia accidents resulting in 118 fatalities and 5,078 injuries. Of those crashes, six out of 10 were on city streets. When a serious injury or fatal bicycle accident occurs, it is vital to determine who was responsible for the crash and how it could have been prevented.

Holding At-Fault Parties Accountable

A skilled personal injury lawyer will work with investigators to determine the cause of the crash. If the driver’s negligence contributed to the accident, then the at-fault driver can be held accountable for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages and other related damages.

A bicycle accident attorney will also help find the answers to a number of questions. Was the driver speeding at the time of the crash? Was the motorist sending a text, making a phone call or otherwise distracted? Did the driver run through a stop sign, veer from a lane of traffic or behave erratically before the collision? The answers to these types of questions could affect the victim’s ability to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver.
