Georgia’s Motorcycle Helmet Law
Though not all states require motorcyclists to wear helmets, Georgia does. In the state of Georgia, motorcyclists of all ages are required, by law, to wear helmets at all times. Not only are you legally obligated to wear a helmet, but doing so may also save your life.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Atlanta
Motorcycle accidents can happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents that our firm sees are as follows:
- Dooring accidents
- Accidents at stoplights
- Texting and driving
- Other drivers failing to look before merging or changing lanes
- Driving while intoxicated
- Tailing motorcyclists too closely

Is PIP Available for Motorcyclists in Georgia?
PIP, also known as Personal Injury Protection insurance, is a form of no-fault auto insurance that essentially provides injured parties in auto accidents with financial compensation to cover a portion of the expenses they incurred as a result of their accident and injury, regardless of who caused the accident. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are excluded from PIP insurance in Georgia, meaning that if you are injured in an accident, the only way you will recover financial compensation is if you can prove that the other party caused the accident in a personal injury claim with the assistance of an Atlanta injury lawyer.
To recover compensation after a motorcycle accident, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. As long as our firm can satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf, we should recover financial compensation to help you cope with any damages you’ve incurred. Compensation may cover both economic and non-economic damages.
