Atlanta Officials Knew of Dangerous Pothole that Caused Motorcycle Crash

By Grant Law Office on October 26, 2012

Hazardous Roadways Motorcycle AccidentIn December 2009, a woman was injured in an Atlanta motorcycle accident when her vehicle crashed into a large pothole. According to a My Fox Atlanta news report, documents show that the city of Atlanta had been warned of the pothole back in October 2009, two months before the crash. Officials say that a metal plate was left over the pothole, but full repairs were not made until days after the accident. The city later agreed to pay the woman injured in the crash $220,000 to settle her lawsuit.

Determining liability for an Atlanta traffic accident can be a complicated process. Potentially liable parties for a traffic accident include motorists involved in the accident, the manufacturer of a potentially defective auto part, or even the city if the accident occurred as the result of a dangerous roadway condition.

Victims of injury accidents often have it in their best interest to contact a skilled personal injury lawyer who will work with investigators to determine the cause of the crash.

Victims of Atlanta traffic accidents can pursue financial compensation for their losses by filing a claim against the at-fault party. Depending on the cause of the crash, compensation may be available for medical bills, time away from work, pain and suffering, hospitalization, the cost of rehabilitation services, and other related damages.
