We Fight For Your Future
Motorcyclists can face unfair bias on the road and in the claims process.
Despite the widespread popularity of motorcycles, there are still many drivers on Savannah roads that fail to exercise caution and courtesy toward motorcyclists. When inconsiderate drivers fail to obey traffic safety laws or remain alert to the presence of motorcycles that may be harder to spot, the result may be life-altering injuries or fatalities.
Many bikers still face bias by insurance companies and the courts following an accident. You need an attorney who knows how to fight against biker bias to secure you the maximum compensation that you deserve.

What If I Wasn’t Wearing a Helmet?
When motorcyclists are involved in Savannah motorcycle collisions, there is a high probability of suffering permanent injury. Motorcycles do not offer the protection of a metal frame and body that is provided by other motor vehicles. Bikes also fail to provide safety equipment like lap belts, shoulder belts and air bags. One piece of safety equipment that can make an enormous difference in a Savannah motorcycle accident is a helmet. Head injuries are the leading cause of motorcycle accident fatalities, and they are the most common form of catastrophic motorcycle injury. All motorcycle riders in Savannah are required to wear motorcycle helmets. If a motorcycle rider is involved in a Savannah motorcycle accident while violating the mandatory helmet law, the insurance company will likely argue that the failure to wear a helmet constitutes comparative negligence. However, even if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of your accident, a Montlick attorney might still be able to recover significant financial compensation for you. Call today to find out your legal options.

When you suffer this type of injury, it may mean months of rehabilitation and even the need for permanent supportive care. The cost associated with treating these types of devastating injuries can impose intense financial problems on an injury victim and the victim’s family. Our Savannah motorcycle accident attorneys may be able to obtain a broad range of compensation to cover both economic and non-economic damages. Pecuniary damages are basically tangible forms of economic loss, including lost income, costs of medical treatment and future disability. Non-pecuniary damages are those that are more difficult to calculate, such as pain and suffering, diminished quality of life and damage to one’s marital relationship. If you are the victim of particularly offensive or condemnable conduct like drunk driving, you may also be entitled to receive an award of punitive damages. Burial and funeral expenses also may be recovered in a wrongful death claim.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Savannah
The Savannah motorcycle accident attorneys at Montlick recognize the potential risk that careless drivers pose to motorcycle riders. If you ride a motorcycle on Savannah roads, you have the disadvantage of being harder to see, particularly when you are in the blind spot of motorists in other motor vehicles including pickups, car, SUVs and even tractor-trailers. When inattentive or careless drivers make a mistake, the danger posed to motorcyclists is magnified because motorcycles lack the handling of four wheeled vehicles. A motorcyclist forced to suddenly brake or make sharp steering adjustments risks laying down their bike. When Savannah motorcyclists do lay down their bike or they are hit by the driver of another vehicle, the lack of protection offered by a motorcycle can mean severe injuries that result in permanent physical and/or cognitive impairment.
There are many causes of motorcycle accidents, including unsafe drivers, defective motorcycles and poorly designed or poorly maintained roadways. Our Savannah motorcycle accident attorneys have been providing effective legal representation to those injured in motorcycle collisions for nearly three decades. Some of the most common causes of Savannah motorcycle accidents include the following:
- DUI/DWI offenses committed by other motorists
- Drivers that fail to pay attention because they are using cell phones

- Following motorcycles too closely
- Drivers who violate the speed limit
- Adverse weather conditions
- Defective motorcycles or motorcycle components
