In Georgia and in many states, bicyclists are entitled to ride on the roads along with motor vehicles. Even though the law requires drivers to share the road with bicyclists, accidents involving bicyclists often happen when a car or truck driver fails to pay attention to the road ahead. When that occurs, the bicyclist's injuries are often severe and can include paralysis, head injuries and even fatal injuries. If you or someone you love was hit by a car, you need a dedicated personal injury attorney to help you through the legal process.
