By Grant Law Office on September 18, 2012 - Comments off

A 22-year-old Canton woman was injured in a Georgia traffic accident when a truck struck her motorcycle. According to a CBS Atlanta news report, the motorcycle crash occurred on GA 140 at Hickory Nut Drive in Cherokee County. Officials say a 62-year-old man was driving a Chevrolet S10 truck that struck the motorcycle and ran the female rider over. She sustained serious injuries in the crash. The truck driver remained at the scene and was not cited for the crash.

Georgia motorcycle accidents often result in serious or fatal injuries. In the year 2008, 12 percent of the people killed in Georgia traffic accidents were motorcyclists. According to the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS), the 177 people killed in Georgia motorcycle accidents in the year 2008 reflects the highest highway motorcycle fatality count in 15 years. GOHS also reports that nearly a third of all fatal motorcycle crashes between the years 2004 and 2008 occurred in Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb, DeKalb, and Chatham counties.

Victims who survive a Georgia motorcycle accident can pursue financial compensation for their losses by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. In cases involving negligence, compensation should be available for the victim’s medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other related damages. However, many claims are disputed and it is common for drivers to deny responsibility for the crash.
