The College Park Area Has More Motorcycle Accidents Than Anywhere in Georgia
College Park is in a region with the highest rate of motorcycle accidents in the state. According to the 2019 Georgia motorcycle traffic safety fact sheet published by the Georgia Department of Driver Services, there were 510 motorcycle crashes in Fulton County, which encompasses part of College Park. Of these, 115 resulted in suspected severe or fatal injuries to the motorcyclist.
One of the reasons for the high occurrence of accidents in the region is College Park’s proximity to Atlanta, also located in Fulton County.
Additionally, the city houses a portion of the Hartsfield – Jackson Atlanta International Airport and is the location of a merger of Interstates 85 and 285.

If Your Accident Resulted from Another Party’s Negligence, They Should Compensate You
If your motorcycle accident resulted from another party’s dangerous or reckless actions, they should be responsible for your damages. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Following too closely
- Passing a motorcycle too closely
- Improper turns
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving
- Faulty road design
- Dangerous road conditions, such as potholes, broken road surfaces, or broken traffic lights
- Defective brakes, tires, lights, or other vehicle equipment
- Lane splitting (illegally passing or riding alongside a motorcycle in the same lane)
Our attorneys can help you collect evidence and prove fault for your accident. This includes gathering medical bills and records, interviewing eyewitnesses, and consulting with experts about your case. We will pursue compensation from all those liable for your injuries, which may include one or more of the following:
- Another motorcyclist
- A passenger vehicle driver
- A truck or commercial vehicle driver
- A motorcycle or vehicle manufacturer
- An auto parts manufacturer
- A government entity or private roadway owner
Georgia Is an At-Fault Insurance State
In Georgia, drivers must carry liability insurance to pay for accidents they cause. According to the Georgia Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, all motorists must have $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident in bodily insurance liability, and $25,000 in property damage liability. Drivers can also carry optional, additional policies to pay for damages to their own vehicle (comprehensive/collision coverage) and accidents caused by underinsured/uninsured motorists.
We can file an insurance claim against the at-fault driver and help you negotiate a settlement with your insurance provider if you have applicable policies. We will communicate with insurance agents on your behalf and fight for fair compensation. If we cannot achieve a settlement award, we can file a lawsuit against the liable party.
If you must go to court, you typically have two years to file a personal injury or wrongful death case, according to O.C.G.A § 9-3-33. If your suit is against a city, state, or local government, you may have less time. Our attorneys can tell you more and help you act before the statute of limitations expires.

What Awards Can You Pursue?
Compensation for your injuries fall into two primary categories:
- Economic damages – Medical care, vehicle repairs, and other costs related to your accident can pile up fast. Economic damages recoup your out-of-pocket expenses, including past and future medical bills, rehabilitation and long-term care services, medications and medical equipment, lost wages, household services, and personal property damages.
- Non-economic damages – Severe injuries can take a toll on your physical, mental, and emotional health. Non-economic damages compensate victims for intangible losses caused by their injury, including awards for depression, sleeplessness, chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and loss of the ability to participate in activities and hobbies you used to enjoy.
Wrongful Death Cases
If your loved one died from their accident-related injuries, a representative of their estate can seek compensation on behalf of the estate and its beneficiaries. These damages may include the deceased’s medical bills, lost wages, and other losses stemming from their motorcycle accident.
The deceased’s surviving spouse, children, or parents (in that order) can pursue additional awards for the loss of their loved one’s care, support, and companionship. They can also pursue the value of wages, earnings, and benefits the deceased would have earned had they lived.
