Almost all such accidents result in some form of road rash.  Our Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer has the experience and resources to handle even the most challenging cases.

Motorcycle accidents often call for the use of an accident reconstruction expert. Accident reconstruction involves a scientific process of investigating, analyzing, and determining what caused an accident. Statistically, motorcycle accidents are usually the fault of the other driver involved, largely because motorcycles can be difficult to see. Reconstructions are almost always performed by an engineer, who must apply scientific principles to their investigation in order to withstand an attack on their credibility at trial. The Atlanta motorcycle accident attorneys at Ponton Law focuses on answering the following questions in preparation for a reconstruction:

  1. Have all eyewitnesses been identified? Sometimes we can identify witnesses who are not listed on the MVA report, such as by obtaining a 911 recording
  2. Have all aspects of the scene been photographed, including the motorcycle at the final rest position, the view approaching the crash, the area of the impact itself, witness perspectives, interiors of the vehicles, collision debris distribution, and vehicle damage?
  3. Have the ECM, EDR, or “black boxes” been recovered and analyzed? Typically, we can get information on speed and brakes for a few seconds prior to the crash.

Slip-and-Fall Interrogatories to Defendant

If you cannot resolve a slip-and-fall injury case out of court, the plaintiff might well be required to bring a personal injury suit in civil court. If this occurs, the parties to the litigation — that is, the complainant (the injured individual) and the defendant (often the premises owner) — will disclose information about the incident and crucial components of the complainant's claim in a procedure known as "discovery." The issuance of interrogatories from one side to the other is a key discovery tool. Interrogatories are written queries, which must be answered honestly, in writing, and under oath by the receiving party ("under penalty of perjury," in Georgia). Slip-and-Fall Interrogatories To Defendant The primary concern in a slip-and-fall claim is generally if the premises owner — or the person or organization responsible for overseeing the premises — did not make sensible efforts to avoid the plaintiff's mishap. The complainant must…
