Bike Accidents

Bicycle riding is a great mode of transportation. But biking can also be dangerous, especially in the car-heavy Metro Atlanta area. Cars and trucks pass dangerously close to bicyclists, and even the most careful rider can be hit by a motor vehicle. Victims of bicycle accidents can experience not only great physical injury but emotional trauma as well.
