Your Catastrophic Injury
Case Is Our Top Priority.

Atlanta Motorcycle Accidents Lawyer

At Ponton Law, we know that motorcycle accidents often account for a disproportionately high number of serious traffic injuries.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 4,688 people died in motorcycle crashes in 2013 alone. These devastating accidents can result in serious brain injury, multiple fractures, paralysis, and wrongful death.  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 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.

Common Types of Late Appearing Car Accident Injuries

Immediately after a car crash, victims generally have an idea of the injuries they sustained. That could lead them to settle their claim fast, in hopes of getting compensation, so they can move on with their lives. However, some injuries resulting from a car accident do not reveal themselves until a few weeks or months later. That could potentially delay healing and hit one with unexpected medical expenses. The person might have to miss some time from work. Moreover, if the victim had already settled their case, they might be limited in pursuing extra compensation to cover the new expenses. They’ll usually be unable to recover compensation for the additional medical costs or lost earnings. Here are the most common types of late appearing car accident injuries: 1.      Concussion At times, the collision’s impact can jolt a victim’s body and cause them to violently hit their head on…
