Trusted Macon Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Don't Settle for Less. Hire the Firm that Fights.

 When cars and trucks neglect to share the road, cyclists can get hurt.

When cyclists and motorists collide, the consequences can be dire. The high likelihood of severe injury in bicycle-and-motor vehicle crashes means that these accidents are generally more expensive for insurance companies. The insurance companies will likely dig in their heels to avoid paying you the money you deserve after your crash. That’s where we come in.

Our Macon injury attorneys’ success is based on our experience successfully representing injured cyclists since 1984. We understand the ways careless and distracted drivers can threaten the safety of cyclists across Georgia. We hold negligent drivers accountable for the harm they inflict on bicyclists while pursuing the fullest recovery for our clients.

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

Determining Fault

Common Bicycle Crash Injuries

Cyclists experience two main types of crashes: falls and collisions with motor vehicles. While falls are the most common kind of bicycle crash, motor vehicle collisions are the most serious. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety:

  • 961 bicyclists were killed in motor vehicle collisions in 2021
  • 90% of deaths were among people 20 years old and above

For crashes involving a bicycle and car, the most common forms of injuries are head traumas. Head injuries result in the most amount of deaths, indicating the importance of wearing a helmet. The greatest number of injuries occurred between the hours of 6 a.m. to midnight. Other injuries include:

  • Broken, shattered, or fractured bones
  • Cuts, gashes, and open wounds
  • Soft tissue injuries (torn ligaments, tendons, and muscles)
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Burns
  • Road rash

In the most severe cases, a bicycle-car accident can result in death. Most cyclist deaths (65%) occur at non-intersections including the open road or residential areas. The other 35% of deaths can be attributed to reckless driving at intersections.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

If you’ve been injured by a negligent driver while riding your bike, you may be able to pursue damages resulting in financial compensation to help pay for your related medical care and more. Damages can include medical expenses, lost income, lost earning capacity, emotional distress, pain and suffering and more.

It is impossible to determine the exact value of a case without speaking to an attorney first. During your free consultation with Montlick, our attorneys can examine the specific facts and circumstances of your case, and may be able to provide a general estimate of your case value.

Staying Safe on the Road

The NHTSA urges cyclists to cycle predictably when on the road. Cyclists should move in the same direction as traffic, obey street signs, signals and road markings, and avoid or minimize sidewalk riding. Motorists should always be aware of cyclists on the road, yield to cyclists as they would other motorists, and give cyclists plenty of room by not passing too closely.

Cyclists and motorists are both responsible for following the rules of the road. Remaining careful and alert can help decrease bicycle-automobile collisions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Bike Crash 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.
