My Motorcycle was Cut Off
"A car cut off my motorcycle in downtown Atlanta, and I slid out and suffered road rash to my elbow and knees. Can I file a legal claim against the driver?"
If the accident was the fault of the other driver, then you most likely have a legal case. Even though you didn't sustain serious injuries, road rash or road burn can be painful and sometimes serious, as it can create lasting damage to your skin. This injury can be moderate to severe and may heal within a week or longer, depending upon the severity of the motorcycle crash. If you want to pursue legal action, it is wise to see a doctor and seek medical treatment for your injuries. That way, your injuries are documented, which will help support your personal injury case. Because road rash may lead to permanent scarring and because your bike was most likely damaged, you should seek advice from an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney.
