Bicycle Accident Injury Lawyers Serving Albany 

The Right Legal Representation Means Everything

After a bike accident, it may feel like the world is against you. Fortunately, there’s a way to move forward–and it starts with calling Montlick. 

From motorists jabbering away on a cell phone to unrestrained dogs chasing after cyclists, the risk of a cyclist being involved in a serious accident is substantial. These risks are compounded by an overall lack of cycling-friendly infrastructure such as protected bike lanes, and the susceptibility of bicyclists to accidents caused by potholes in poorly maintained streets.

Our Albany personal injury lawyers draw on our experience successfully representing bicycle accident victims since 1984. Many members of our law firm are cycling enthusiasts, so we understand the ways careless and distracted drivers threaten the safety of bike riders. We hold negligent drivers accountable for the harm they inflict on bicyclists while pursuing the fullest recovery for our clients.

When a bike accident upends your life, you need a law firm that knows how to explore all avenues of compensation and vigorously purse them on behalf of you or your loved one. You need Montlick Injury Attorneys.

I was injured at work and needed a lawyer who would understand and not take for granted what I was going through. Alex and Johnathan with MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES were like Batman and Robin. While Alex was leading the defense he had Johnathan that not only kept in constant contact with my day to day issues, he also had first hand experience of what my injuries were and what I was going through physical, mentally and emotionally. Alex & Johnathan, you both gave me a reason to believe that not all lawyers are only about their bottom line. I thank you both for being there when I was at one of the lowest points in my life.
Ellen Forrester and Nicole Casorio are the best in the business.Incredible professionalism, honesty and efficiency.Not only was Ellen 100% accurate on her assessment of my case, she was also a straight shooter.Nicole thank you for your patience and help in navigating this stressful process.10/10

We Hear You. We Value You. We Fight for You.

When an inattentive or careless driver hits a bicyclist, a three thousand-pound steel enclosure, if not heavier, protects the driver from harm. Meanwhile, with little to no protection, the bicyclist can be left with life-altering injuries. Montlick’s attorneys have seen the devastation of bicycle accident injuries firsthand and know how to fight against insurance company bias against cyclists to restore justice for our clients’ finances, family, and future.

Traumatic Brain Injuries and Bicycle Helmets Albany, Georgia

Serious head injuries constitute the leading cause of bike riding accidents that result in fatalities. Although multiple studies demonstrate the effectiveness of helmets in preventing head injuries when riding a bike, many Georgia bicyclists elect to take their chances. A study involving 64,000 cyclists around the world found that helmets reduced the risk of severe head injuries by 70 percent. The researchers also reported that the risk of fatal head trauma declined by 65 percent when cyclists wore a helmet.

While Georgia law requires that cyclists under the age of 16 wear an ANSI complaint helmet, the law makes helmet use by other riders a matter of rider discretion. Although no fine or jail time will be imposed on a rider under 16 who declines to wear a helmet, a parent could be charged with a misdemeanor for failing to equip a child with a helmet when riding a bike.

Although bicyclists have the right to share the roads with cars, pickups, SUVs, and tractor-trailers, riders also have a legal obligation to obey Georgia traffic laws. Motorized vehicles must comply with special traffic rules designed to make the roadways of Albany and other cities safe for bike riders. Special statewide laws that protect cyclists provide that:

  • Motorists must yield to cyclists in bike lanes.
  • Drivers of cars and other motor vehicles are required to remain to the left of a bike when passing and to do so at a safe distance. A return to the lane cannot happen until the car has traveled a sufficient distance from the bike.
  • Motorists must yield to cyclists on a sidewalk

Cycling Statistics

Cycling has become a phenomenon that offers the benefits of enhanced health and reduced pollution. During a twenty year period ending in 2009, the number of bicycle trips in the nation more than doubled from 1.8 billion to 4 billion. Commuting by bike has increased by 47 percent nationally and 73 percent in large metro areas during the last decade.

Despite the enormous individual and societal benefits associated with the widespread use of bikes, drivers who use their cell phone, disregard the speed limit, or engage in other unsafe driving practices endanger rider safety. Bicycles offer limited ability to evade a collision and provide virtually no protection to the cyclist when a crash occurs. Given the relative speed difference between an automobile and a bicycle, cycling enthusiasts have limited ability to evade a distracted or careless driver. When a collision does occur, bikes lack a protective passenger enclosure, air bags, and safety restraints. This lack of safety equipment leaves riders exposed to devastating injuries when they encounter negligent motorists. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 52,000 riders are injured and another 600 die annually in collisions between bicycles and motor vehicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

All your bicycle accident questions, answered

What Are Georgia Deadlines for Filing Car Accident Insurance Claims & Lawsuits?
For personal injury claims resulting from a car accident, the statute of limitations in Georgia is usually two years from the date of the accident. This means you would have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible party/parties. Failure to file within this time frame could result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries. The statutes of limitations can vary depending on the jurisdiction of the accident.
