Motorcycles are popular in Macon and throughout Georgia, and riders can be seen on the roads year-round. Some motorcyclists use their bikes to commute to work, while others only take them out on the weekend on one of the state’s many scenic routes. But motorcyclists are at risk out on the road, and an accident can leave them seriously hurt. Motorcycle accident attorney Jon R. Hawk can help injured motorcyclists recover the compensation they deserve.
Injuries seen in motorcycle accidents are often serious because a motorcyclist has very little protection out on the open road. They can take certain precautions, such as wearing a helmet, long-sleeved shirts, gloves and denim or leather pants. But when a motorcyclist is hit by a car or truck, Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC knows that the result is often major injuries.
Injuries commonly seen in motorcycle accidents include:
Head and brain injuries
Biker’s arm (nerve damage)
Spinal cord injuries
Road rash (cuts, scrapes and bruises on the skin)
The injuries from motorcycle accidents can take months or even years to recover from. There are some injuries that are permanent. The cost for medical treatment can add up quickly. If you are left unable to work, you have less income coming in. Jon fights to get you the compensation you need to focus on your recovery.
Tell Jon about your accident
Filing a claim for a motorcycle accident has unique challenges. For example, Jon knows that most motorcyclists are responsible and follow the rules of the road. But insurance companies often don’t see it that way. They have a stereotype of motorcyclists as being irresponsible and reckless. If there was an accident, they think the motorcyclist must be to blame somehow.
Jon rejects that kind of thinking. His legal team investigates your accident to find out what really happened. Jon knows how to build a strong case that proves the other driver’s negligence caused the crash. Whether a car turned right in front of you or you were hit by a distracted driver from behind, he’ll fight against attempts to put the blame on you.
Many times, Jon is able to negotiate a settlement of your case that works for you. But if the insurance company won’t do what’s right, he will fight for you in court. Jon is known for litigation and is proud of the case results that have helped so many clients.
