Georgia Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Georgia’s recently passed Better Bicycling Bill, which requires drivers of motor vehicles to give bike riders a three-foot buffer, is just one example of the steps taken to make it clear to drivers that bicyclists have a right to be safe on the road. When drivers fail to give bike riders adequate space or act negligently in any other way, and their negligence leads to a bike accident, they should be held accountable.

At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, our attorneys handle cases involving bicyclists hit by cars and bicyclists hit by trucks. If you have been injured in this type of accident, you can benefit from the aggressive representation we provide in these cases.

We have a strong track record of success in bike accident cases. See what some of our clients are saying about their experiences with us.

Determining the Cause of a Bike Accident

Briggs WinstonPerhaps the cause of the bicycle accident seems obvious. Someone in a motor vehicle sped up and took a right turn directly in front of the bike rider, causing a collision. The driver of a car or semi-truck swerved and knocked the bicyclist off the road.

We dig deep in these cases, gathering the details we need to build a strong case. Did the semi-truck driver swerve because he or she was driving while fatigued? Did the driver of the car speed up and cut the bike rider off because he or she was sending a text message while trying to drive and was not paying adequate attention to the road? We will find out.
