Motorcycle Accidents in Barrow County
Fighting on Behalf of the Wrongfully Injured
Motorcyclists appreciate the freedom and “feel of the road” that riding a motorcycle provides. Nothing ruins that feeling more than an inattentive or even reckless driver that negligently causes financial damages and injuries to a motorcyclist.

To ensure you obtain the recovery you need from this terrible incident, it is essential to hire an experienced attorney.

Since motorcyclists do not have the same protections as those in other vehicles, such as airbags, seatbelts, and the safety of an enclosed space, the injuries they sustain can be potentially severe.
Here are some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Road rash
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can happen for any number of reasons though the root of most of these causes is negligence.
Here is a list of some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Open car doors: When the driver of a parked car opens the door into the path of an oncoming motorcycle, this can result in a serious accident. Drivers should check for oncoming traffic before opening their door.
- Unsafe lane changes: It is crucial to signal and check for blind spots before changing lanes. Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles on the road, making them easier to miss. Properly checking blind spots can help prevent these accidents from occurring.
- Left turns: Right of way errors are also incredibly common and, unfortunately, this is a common cause of injury or death to motorcyclists.
- Sudden stops: Generally, the injuries in a minor fender bender involving two cars are not too severe. However, even the smallest fender bender with a motorcycle can result in a catastrophic outcome, so it is crucial for drivers to maintain enough distance ahead to avoid accidents caused by sudden stops.
