Frequently Asked Questions

My Word Against that of the Car Driver

"A car hit me while I was riding my bicycle. The driver says he didn’t see me. He doesn’t think I had lights on my bicycle, but I did. Do I still have a Georgia personal injury case if it is just my word against that of the car driver?"

According to Georgia law, every bicycle used during dusk or at night is required to have a white light, visible from 300 feet ahead, mounted on the front of the bike. Additionally, the law states that a red reflector, also visible from 300 feet, is required to be on the rear of the bike. If you had those items on your bike functioning properly, then you may need to do some investigating.

Did anyone else witness the crash? Did your spouse, friend, or neighbor happen to see your bicycle that night prior to your bicycle accident? Witnesses can be very powerful tools in a Georgia personal injury case. Ask around your neighborhood to see if anyone can confirm seeing your bicycle the night of your crash. Additionally, attorneys can also help strengthen your case.

There may have been video surveillance in a parking lot or on one of the streets you were traveling on. A lawyer can investigate and request video footage that may support the fact that your bicycle was equipped with lights and a reflector. We may be able to help you, but would like to discuss more of the accident details with you first.

Please call The Kalka Law Group to speak with an experienced bicycle accident lawyer in a free, no-obligation consultation.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind cyclists about the importance of crash scene photographs. If victims are able to do so, it is important to take pictures of the crash, including a cyclist’s own bike. Those photographs may be crucial for your Atlanta personal injury attorney as he tries to get you the compensation you deserve.
