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. We have experience handling cases involving 18-wheelers, fifth-wheel tractor-trailers and many others that may collide with bike riders on the streets of Georgia.

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.”

“I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision.In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
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.”
