Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Georgia
Protecting Clients in Greensboro, Alpharetta, Ellijay & All of Georgia
Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable because, unlike other motorists, they are less visible on the road and far less protected in the event of a collision or fall. This may be why motorcycle accidents injure 50,000 people and kill an additional 3,000 people each year.
With statistics like these, we know how much risk there is on the road to motorcycle riders. That's why we want to be the lawyers you feel comfortable turning to when you need help after an accident. If you or someone you love has been injured because of someone else’s negligent driving, contact the motorcycle accident attorneys in Georgia at the Law Offices of Falanga & Chalker to help you pursue compensation for injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Did a Loved One’s Motorcycle Accident Result in Brain Injury?
Injuries to the head, including brain injury, are commonly caused because riders aren’t wearing helmets or their helmets fail upon impact. In the latter case, you may have a product liability claim to pursue, but not wearing a helmet doesn’t necessarily preclude you from seeking just and fair compensation from someone who caused an accident that resulted in a serious head injury.
Depending upon the circumstances of the accident, injuries to the head can be non-fatal but result in serious consequences such as brain damage, paralysis, permanent disability, or damage to the nervous system and spinal cord.

A victim’s financial and emotional recovery can begin by contacting the motorcycle accident attorneys in Georgia at the Law Offices of Falanga & Chalker.

Our attorneys are experienced litigators who have handled lawsuits involving motorcycle accidents before. We approach each case individually and have the knowledge and skills necessary to apply our experience in helping victims recover their rightful compensation to the particulars of your case.
Injuries or extreme grief may make it difficult for victims to seek legal counsel. Because of this, our motorcycle accident attorneys in Georgia can make arrangements to visit victims and their families in the hospital or at their home.
Don’t Engage with Opposing Insurance
If you’re contacted by an adjuster from the other party’s insurance company, it’s important not to grant them an interview because these people are trained to make you undermine your own case and at your expense.
Opposing insurance adjusters are simply trying to get you to say something they will be able to use against you. This will help the company pay out the least amount of damages on the claim, or none at all. When the insurance company calls you, you need to call your attorney at the Law Offices of Falanga & Chalker.
You may want to get your bike back on the road, but don’t get it repaired until all damage to it is documented. Keep records of all expenses you have incurred from your motorcycle accident and make sure to give a copy to your attorney.
