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 wrongful death.
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.
