I was riding a motorcycle and was struck from behind. Can I sue the driver?
I’m sorry to hear about your accident. If you are a motorcycle rider and you have been struck from behind while riding, you may wish to talk to one of the motorcycle accident attorneys at Holston & Huntley. A qualified Georgia motorcycle accident attorney can help you assess the merits of your case and help you determine the best course of action. It’s critical that you speak with someone as soon as possible, because the longer you wait, the more likely it is that you risk missing out on filing your claim due to an expiration of the statute of limitations.
Rear end motorcycle accidents are just one of many types of accidents that result in fatalities each year. A rear end collision typically happens when a motorcycle suddenly stops and is hit by the car behind it. In some cases, automobile drivers simply do not see motorcyclists and may strike them from behind, even when the motorcyclist is not stopped. Motorcycle riders face much greater dangers in becoming injured from these types of accidents. A rear end collision can cause a motorcycle rider to have permanent disabilities, severe head injuries, or could even cause death.
There are a number of causes of motorcycle accidents. In many of them, an automobile driver is negligent and simply not paying attention. The driver may be distracted due to texting or talking on the phone. The driver may be speeding or failing to follow other traffic rules. The driver could be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
On average, between 4,000 and 5,000 people are killed in motorcycle crashes each year, and almost 100,000 are injured. There are over eight million motorcycles on the roads in the U.S. The good news is that although there are more motorcycles on the roads, the percentage of fatalities has actually declined.
A motorcycle accident can result in a huge amount of medical expenses, as well as the inability to work, which can cause a financial strain to both the individual and his or her family. Typically, medical care during the hospital stay can be astronomically expensive, and the costs for the medical care required after the accident, as well as rehab, can easily result in a medical bill well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
It’s vital that motorcycle riders pay attention to the road so that they can anticipate changing lights and abrupt stops from other drivers, which can help avoid rear end collisions. If a driver fails to see a motorcyclist in time and hits him or her from behind, the driver can be held legally responsible, and can be forced to pay damages. Those damages include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
