Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Fighting for Injured Cyclists

Bicycles can be a great source of recreation, but also a valid mode of transportation.

With the cost of driving always increasing and Americans looking to live healthier lifestyles, more and more people are taking to the road on bicycles. Unfortunately, this has led to an increase in bicycle accidents, which can result in very serious injuries. An Atlanta bicycle accident lawyer can be indispensable if you’ve been injured in a crash.

Building Your Case with an Atlanta Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Many cyclists think the fact that they were hit by a car is sufficient to pursue a claim. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Here’s how an experienced Atlanta bicycle accident lawyer can help you build your case: 

  • They can compile all of your medical records and expenses and ensure that they clearly document the cause and nature of your injuries.
  • They can get statements from any witnesses.
  • They can obtain copies of the police reports.
  • They can handle all correspondence with the insurance companies.
  • They can document the scene of the accident, analyze the facts, and recreate what happened

Violating Georgia Law Helps Establish Fault 

Many motorists think that bicycles do not belong on the road. Fortunately, this is not the case – Georgia law establishes several important rights for cyclists and pedestrians

  • Motorists must provide you with at least three feet of space when passing
  • Motorists must yield to you if you are riding in a designated bike lane
  • You are allowed to ride in the middle of a travel lane if it is unsafe to ride on the shoulder, the lane is too narrow to share with another vehicle, you are traveling at the same speed as traffic, or you are passing a stopped vehicle that is proceeding in the same direction as you

These rights are important in determining whether you have a claim. Motorists are obligated to know the rules of the road. Failure to abide by these laws pertaining to cyclists may be evidence of negligence. If you were injured in an accident because a vehicle passed too closely, for example, an Atlanta bicycle accident lawyer may be able to use this fact to help you pursue a personal injury claim for compensation. 

What to Do if You’ve Been Injured in a Bicycle Accident

If you are conscious at the scene, probably the most important thing for you to do is to remain calm. Your emotions may be running high, you may be in a lot of pain, and you may be tempted to lash out at the driver who hit you. Despite all of these things, you need to do your best to remain focused so that you can make a note of the time and weather conditions, your surroundings, and get the name and contact information for the driver and any witnesses. 

You should also contact the police, even if you aren’t sure if you’re injured or the other driver is accepting responsibility. The police will secure the site of the accident to keep you safe. More importantly, they will generate an accident report that can contain critical details for your case if you need to pursue a claim. 

The next thing you should do is to get a thorough medical exam even if you declined treatment at the scene. It’s quite common for many injuries to manifest themselves in the days after your accident. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions and be careful to keep copies of all bills, notes, and other documents surrounding your injuries. An Atlanta bicycle accident lawyer can help you assemble the documentation you need so that you can focus on your recovery.
