Anyone struck while riding a bicycle can sustain serious, even life-threatening injuries. With little bodily protection aside from a helmet, cyclists can wind up with injuries to the head, neck, back, and spine along with fractures, sprains, lacerations, internal bleeding, organ damage, and more. Such injuries can take months or even years to recover from.
If you or someone you love has been injured as a bicyclist due to someone else’s negligence, or if you have lost a loved one in a fatal bicycle accident, you have the right to pursue compensation for the damages you have sustained. This is done through a personal injury claim. Before talking to any insurance company, you would be better served by seeking the counsel and representation of a trusted attorney.

Bicycling has grown in popularity across the U.S. and in Georgia as a means of transportation, sport, and exercise. Unfortunately, that means we have also seen a rise in accidents for cyclists who often must compete with cars and trucks for space on roads. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, an average of 800 biking accidents occur annually in the state. The majority of these end up in injuries to cyclists.
Larger cities such as Macon see far more accidents than rural areas due to traffic density. These accidents occur more often and result in more serious injuries.
