Macon Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
We Fight for Wrongfully Injured Bikers
According to a 2019 report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 5,000 people lose their lives to motorcycle accidents each year. At Adams Law Firm, we have the experience needed when representing riders in a motorcycle accident case and treats them with the respect and personal attention they deserve. Our motorcycle accident attorneys in Macon are familiar with the nuances of the laws designed to protect motorcyclists, and emphatically believe that riders are entitled to the same rights and safety measures as any other driver.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
When a multi vehicle collision involves a motorcycle, it is almost always the biker who suffers the most significant injuries. Due to the lack of protection afforded by motorcycles, especially compared to closed vehicles, bikers must wear protective gear such as helmets and leather jackets to mitigate injuries in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, even with protective gear, a biker who is thrown from their motorcycle is likely to suffer at least some injuries that need to be treated.
Some of the most common motorcycle crash injuries bikers suffer include:
- Road rash
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spine and spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
Staying Safe on the Road
Motorcyclists in Georgia are required by law to wear helmets and eye protection (unless a helmet is windscreen-equipped) while on the road.
Riders can also help keep themselves safer on the road by following these precautions:
- Wear protective clothing such as gloves, heavy boots, and a padded riding jacket.
- Increase visibility by wearing light-colored or reflective clothing. Georgia law requires the use of headlights during the daytime.
- Avoid poor road and weather conditions.
- Do not speed, lane split, or operate your vehicle recklessly.
- Never ride under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

It's important that every driver on the road remembers to be careful not only around other vehicles but around motorcyclists as well. The popular "Look Twice, Save a Life" and "Share the Road" bumper stickers have been a helpful reminder, but unfortunately non-riders often have a misconception of motorcyclists that they are irresponsible or reckless drivers.
