ATLANTA FATAL BICYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
With little more than a helmet for protection, if that, bicyclists frequently do not survive collisions with cars and trucks. When these bicycle accidents are the result of negligence, members of the victim’s family have the right to take action against the negligent party, seeking justice for their loved one and compensation for their loss.
While there is certainly no amount of compensation that can replace what has been lost, we at the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta believe that taking action is important. Not only does it allow the victim’s family to recover the numerous financial losses they have to deal with because of the act of negligence, it may prevent the negligent party from doing harm again. Our lawyers work aggressively in these cases to see that justice is served.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Perhaps 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.
Bicycle Truck Accident
When a truck collides with a bicyclist, the result is likely to be devastating. Bike riders simply do not have the protection necessary to go up against such a massive vehicle. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, we have extensive experience handling cases involving head injuries and other catastrophic injuries or fatal bicycle accidents.
Our Atlanta accident attorneys have represented clients across Georgia in cases involving bicyclists hit by trucks and other commercial vehicles.

Cyclist Tom Erdmanczyk “When cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.After interviewing attorneys recommended by other cyclists, I engaged W. Winston Briggs as my attorney. Of the other attorneys I interviewed, Winston had the most litigation experience. Six months after the collision, we have received a policy limit settlement from the driver’s insurance company, and Mr. Briggs has addressed the subrogation claim on my health insurance company, resulting in a substantial reduction of their claim.
Ultimately, the settlement was satisfactory because of the involvement of Winston Briggs. I recommend Mr. Briggs highly to any cyclist who has the misfortune to be struck by a car.”

Winston and his team were the best I’ve ever dealt with. Honestly, I’ve hired many law firms in the past 10 years and no other law firm made me feel as important as Winston Briggs. To them I wasn’t just another case, I was family and for that I’m forever grateful. They got me a settlement that I deserved and they fought tooth and nails to make sure I wasn’t being taken advantage of. Nicole, kept me updated with my case’s progress and anytime I had a question she was on it! I felt like I was the only client because of how personalized they made it feel. Best of the best hands down. Thank you once again for everything you did for my family and I!
After interviewing attorneys recommended by other cyclists, I engaged W. Winston Briggs as my attorney because he seemed to have the best grasp of my situation and because, of the attorneys I interviewed, Winston had the most litigation experience. Six months after the collision, we have received a policy limit settlement from the driver’s insurance company, and Mr. Briggs has addressed the subrogation claim of my health insurance company, resulting in a substantial reduction of their claim.
The case required Mr. Briggs to make numerous trips to Virginia to take on the responsible parties on their home turf. Although it required significant effort, at the end of the day, Mr. Briggs successfully forced the responsible companies to accept responsibility for my husband’s death and to pay a settlement that will take care of my son and me over the course of our lives. The event was tragic but I am very pleased that I hired Winston to represent me and my son in the case.”
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest. Without having to go through a lawsuit, Mr. Briggs convinced the hotel’s insurance company to pay more than six times the amount they had offered me to settle the claim before I hired Mr. Briggs. I hope I never need his services again but, if I do, I wouldn’t think of hiring any other attorney to represent me.
I am extremely pleased I hired The Briggs Law Firm and would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the position of needing a personal injury lawyer, and particularly, one who has been injured in a bicycle accident. Once the insurance carriers learned Mr. Briggs was my lawyer, they accepted responsibility for the accident and compensated me for my injuries.
