Bicycling has become a popular way for many people to get around in Macon and throughout Georgia. Thanks to the state’s warm weather and generally flat terrain, many people of all ages bicycle for fun or to get to work or other places.
Unfortunately, bicycle accidents have also become increasingly common. And since cyclists have little or no protection against cars, trucks and other motorized vehicles, the injuries sustained by cyclists in Georgia can often be severe.
Macon bicycle accident attorney Jon R. Hawk takes such cases very seriously. That’s because he and the rest of his staff at Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC understand the stakes at play. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, we can be your voice for justice and make sure your case receives the attention it rightfully deserves.
Common causes of crashes
Bicycle accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents involving motorized vehicles include:
Drivers turning or changing lanes without looking
Reckless or aggressive drivers
The financial toll of a bicycle accident can be staggering – emergency medical care, physical therapy, lost income during your recovery and more. That’s why it’s critical that you have an attorney on your side demanding the financial compensation you deserve.
Your rights matter here
You might think you don’t need a lawyer after your bicycle accident. If a driver clearly caused your crash, all you have to do is call the police and your insurance company and they will take care of everything, right?
Don’t be so sure. Many drivers often deny doing anything wrong. And if they do admit they caused your crash, their insurance company will likely do everything it can to reduce or deny your claim. Without that money, you’ll likely end up having to pay for your accident out of your own pocket.
That’s not right. That’s why we take such cases so seriously at our law firm. We believe you should not have to pay for someone else’s reckless behavior. If we represent you, we will carefully research your accident in search of evidence that proves you did nothing wrong. If you’ve been hurt in a bicycle accident, we want to hear about.
