Liability in Motorcycle Accidents Can Be Difficult to Prove
Earlier this year, a woman was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident
on Ga. 400 in Dawson County. The woman was a passenger on the motorcycle
that collided with an SUV who was attempting to cross over Ga. 400 from
Henry Grady Highway. According to reports, a local store captured the
accident on their video surveillance equipment. Evidence like that could
go a long way to determining who was liable for the accident and resultant
In one instance, a motorcyclist was fatally injured when a vehicle turned
directly in front of his motorcycle. The driver of the vehicle was subsequently
arrested and charged with DUI, failing to yield, and first degree vehicular
homicide. In another injury case, a dog that ran out of its owner's
driveway, directly into a passing motorcyclist, was determined to be the
party responsible for the accident that caused the victim's injuries
and damages. In fact, the judge awarded the victim over $500,000 in damages
and fees, to be paid by the owner of the dog.
