When the conditions are perfect, there is no better way to travel through the Atlanta metro than on a motorcycle. Opting for a bike over a car can have consequences, however. Motorcycle collisions are among the most dangerous types of motor vehicle accidents.

He will put his insight to work for you throughout your personal injury matter.
Common Causes Of Accidents
Insurance companies and negligent drivers may be quick to blame motorcyclists for causing accidents, without searching for the real reason for the collision. Most motorcycle wrecks occur because other drivers fail to see motorcyclists until it is too late.
Whether these drivers are inattentive or reckless, their actions can lead to life-altering or fatal collisions. Bikers are often injured when other drivers:
- Do not yield to cyclists at intersections
- Tailgate motorcyclists and clip them when changing lanes
- Rear-end bikers at traffic lights or stop signs
- Turn in front of bikers without providing advanced warning
- Hit bikers with doors when exiting a vehicle on a street
The at-fault driver may try to deflect responsibility after a wreck, which is why it is critical to work with a seasoned attorney. You may believe you were somewhat accountable for causing the motor vehicle accident; however, this shouldn’t stop you from speaking with our firm. You may still have a case.
Georgia’s contributory negligence law allows personal injury victims to receive compensation after an accident, even if they were partially responsible. When you meet with Dylan Wilbanks, he will personally review your claim and give you an honest assessment of your case.
You can depend on our team to design an effective negotiation or litigation strategy for you. We will fight for damages to cover your medical bills, lost wages and other related costs.
