Q: Are Atlanta Bicycle Accident Cases Different than Atlanta Auto Accident Cases?
A:Yes, bikes wrecks and car accidents are different, but an experienced Atlanta auto accident lawyer may be able to help you with both types of crashes. There are many similarities between Atlanta bicycle accident cases and Atlanta auto accident cases. Generally, both types of cases are investigated by auto accident attorneys in Atlanta in the same way. Additionally, it is often necessary to prove that the other party was negligent and caused your injuries by failing to exercise the same care that a reasonable person would exercise in a similar situation.
However, there are different laws that apply to bicyclists and to motorists who are traveling near bicyclists than to motorists who are near other cars. Your Atlanta car accident lawyer will investigate to see if whether those laws were violated and if they are relevant to your case.
If you have suffered significant injuries in a Georgia bike crash, then you may be entitled to damages. Please contact an Atlanta bike accident lawyer at The Dover Law Firm via our online contact form or at 1.770.518.1133 for more information about your rights and your potential recovery.
