Bicycle Accidents in Georgia
Bicyclists have few protections from harm in the event of an accident. This means that they are likely to become seriously injured or even killed when an accident occurs. Bicyclists are prone to serious harm when they are involved in an accident with a large vehicle. Georgia is no stranger to serious bicycle accidents throughout the state. In just one recent year’s time, it is estimated that approximately 20 bicyclists were killed and many others were injured in accidents due to the recklessness of others. These accidents lead to extensive harm and injuries to those involved. If you have been hurt in a bicycle accident caused by another party, you should have the help of an attorney on your side.
