Dalton, GA Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle driving on Georgia Highway

With its scenic mountains, lush forests, and miles of coastline, many enjoy traveling through Georgia on motorcycles. However, the exhilaration of motorcycle riding comes with some distinct dangers. Because motorcycles are so much smaller than other motor vehicles, riders are less protected from the violent impact of a traffic collision. As a result, motorcycle accidents often leave motorcyclists with severe and sometimes life-changing injuries.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

At Geiger Legal Group, LLC, our Dalton attorneys handle all types of motorcycle accident cases. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents we’ve seen include the following:

  • Distracted driving – Drivers focused on phone calls, text messages, or other distractions are more likely to overlook nearby motorcyclists and cause preventable motorcycle wrecks.
  • Impaired driving – The effects of alcohol and certain drugs can severely limit safe driving abilities, such as depth perception and reaction time. Driving under the influence (DUI) can increase the likelihood of motorcycle accidents.
  • Drowsy driving – Even minor sleep deprivation can leave drivers dangerously drowsy, increasing their risk of overlooking or drifting into nearby motorcyclists.
  • Reckless driving – Reckless driving, such as speeding, tailgating, and lane weaving, leaves drivers less time to react. Reckless driving can cause severe injuries in a motorcycle accident.
  • Driving errors – Inexperienced drivers are more likely to commit driving errors, such as failure to yield the right-of-way. These errors can increase the risk of motorcycle accidents.
