Types of Cases
Motorcyclists and their passengers are at an increased risk of significant injury in a traffic collision. When another motor vehicle collides with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist has little protection aside from their helmet and protective clothing. They could impact the vehicle, the road surface, or another object. Any of these impacts can cause devastating or even fatal injuries.
In 2017 alone, there were 89,000 injuries due to motorcycle accidents in the United States, and 5,172 of those accident injuries resulted in death, according to data collected by several national agencies and reported by the Insurance Information Institute (III). Some of the most common serious injuries suffered by motorcyclists or their passengers in this type of accident include:
- Road rash
- Burn and disfigurement
- Facial injuries, including fractures
- Broken bones
- Limb injuries and amputations
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries with or without paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
Even the most minor of these injuries could cost thousands of dollars for hospitalization, therapy, and rehabilitation. Not to mention, the time missed away from work without a paycheck and other related expenses. We may be able to put a value on your case and fight for a fair payout to cover your treatment and losses.

We Represent Fulton County Motorcycle Accident Victims
An Alpharetta motorcycle accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can represent you in your personal injury claim and present a case for compensation. We handle motorcycle collision cases based on contingency, which means you do not owe us anything for our legal services unless we secure a settlement or another financial award on your behalf.
We also take on cases with unique circumstances, including cases where the negligent party alleges you contributed to your injuries. Per Georgia’s comparative negligence law, Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §51-11-7, you can still recover compensation as long as you are no more than 49 percent at-fault. This will reduce your payout, however.
In addition, we take on wrongful death cases for surviving family members who qualify under OCGA §51-4-2.
In any type of motorcycle accident case, it may be possible to reach an agreement with the insurance carrier that represents the motorist who caused your accident. This allows us to recover a fair settlement for you without having to file a lawsuit, prepare for court, or go to trial. Instead, we negotiate an agreement based on the value we calculate for your case, and once we agree, they send us a check. Once an agreement is made, we receive a settlement check, subtract our fees, and the rest is given to you as the compensation you deserve.
If this process hits a snag, our trial lawyers will not be afraid to take your case to a Fulton County civil court. To learn more about the steps Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to take to secure a payout in your case, call (404) 888-8888 today to talk with a member of our team for free.

At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, we pursue compensation for the expenses our clients incurred as a result of their accident and subsequent treatment.

- Medical care for your injuries
- Future and ongoing care costs
- Lost income and related benefits
- Diminished earning ability

Statute of Limitations on Alpharetta Motorcycle Accidents
Georgia Statute O.C.G.A § 9-3-33 sets a general time limit of two years for most personal injury lawsuits. If a victim does not prepare and file the appropriate paperwork naming the negligent party as a defendant in a case by this deadline, they will not be able to do so in the future.
While there may be exceptions to this rule, they are not common. We can help you determine if this or another deadline applies in your case. Even if you are not yet fully aware of your prognosis or have yet to reach your maximum recovery, we can get started on your case and may be able to enlist the help of experts to determine more about your future medical needs or ongoing care costs.
