The chances of serious injuries or death are more likely on a motorcycle than in a closed vehicle. Georgia law mandates motorcycle riders to wear a helmet, however, the heavy impact can still cause serious injuries or even death. When a motorcyclist is injured due to the fault of another driver, the injuries are often more severe and recovery may take longer.
According to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, 12% of all traffic fatalities in Georgia in 2018 were motorcyclist fatalities. This percentage has increased from 11% in 2017 to 12% in 2018 with the number increasing from 208 to 264.
