Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 23, 2013
Bruce Millar, a personal injury lawyer who represents victims of motorcycle accidents in Atlanta and Georgia, called attention today to a new blog article on his law firm’s website that describes a national and regional rise in deadly car-motorcycle crashes.
The August 9 blog post, “Atlanta Motorcycle Accidents Abound,” cites two fatal motorcycle-car collisions that occurred within days of each other in the Metro Atlanta area in late July. The article notes that motorcycle accident fatalities have become more frequent in Georgia and across the nation over several years.
“There are more motorcycles on the road today than ever before, and that clearly contributes to the greater number of motorcycle accidents we’re seeing,” said Millar, the managing partner of Millar & Mixon, LLC, an Atlanta personal injury law firm.
“Still, the rate of deadly collisions we have seen involving cars and motorcycles is very alarming,” he said. “We hope this new blog post helps to raise awareness about this issue.”
According to Millar, the firm’s blog articles and other motorcycle accident content on its website, MillarandMixon.com, are aimed at informing people about motorcyclists’ vulnerability to serious injury and death in accidents and explaining crash victims’ rights and legal options.
A motorcyclist who has been injured in an accident through no fault of their own may be eligible for compensation through the other driver’s insurance, he pointed out. This compensation can cover motorcycle repair or replacement, medical bills and other losses.
“While we believe our website can be very helpful, it is general information that is not intended to serve as legal advice,” Millar said. “Every case is different. If one has been in a motorcycle accident that involved a car driver, then it’s important that they consult with an attorney right away in order to receive a thorough review of their case and its unique set of facts.”
