Bicycle Accidents Are Often Caused By Drivers or Unsafe Roads
Over the past decade, more and more people are riding bicycles to work and for fun. In fact, many states are encouraging the use of bicycles and pedestrian travel to reduce traffic congestion. Bicycles use the same streets as cars, but unsafe roads, construction, or motor vehicles can cause bicycle accidents and the resulting injuries can be devastating. When a motor vehicle and a bicycle collide, bicyclists are more vulnerable than either motorists or passengers.

Georgia Bicycle Accidents
Although Georgia bicycle crashes make up a small percentage of traffic related accidents, they amount to a far greater percentage of overall fatalities and they are rising in number. The average number of deaths for Georgia bicycle accidents over the past decade is relatively small. But Georgia ranks 8th nationwide in bicycle fatalities, which is disturbing since the Atlanta Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) has one of the lowest rates of bicycle use in a major city. In addition, over the two-year period from 2004-2006, there were 1806 bicycle crashes in Georgia’s 13 largest counties, with greatest number to lowest number in the following counties: Fulton Chatham, Dekalb, Cobb, Richmond, Gwinnett, Clarke, Muscogee, Clayton, Lowndes, Dougherty, Bibb and Glynn.
Georgia Cycling Crash Victims -- Get Legal Help
Serious bicycle accidents are most often caused by someone other than the bicycle rider – and for that reason it is important to get legal advice while the evidence available, witnesses can be located and road conditions can be documented.
