Bike lanes are designated one-way lanes for bicyclists. The heavy traffic in Atlanta coupled with the occasional bias against bike riders can result in dangerous riding conditions. Many drivers think there is not enough room for the bike lane. Others are unaware of the lighting sequence and how the lights are also for use by bikers. Bike accidents have become a problem due to unaware and negligent drivers as well as an influx of people using the bike lanes.
Georgia Law states that motorists must give 3 feet, and also that cyclists are legally allowed to ride two abreast. Combined with my trial experience and knowledge of the cycling community, I can help fight for the compensation you deserve.
Doubts can certainly be raised about claims that Atlanta is a bike-friendly city. Attorney Bethany Schneider is aware of the many factors involved in bike accidents, and how to leverage that information in trial. I am aware of how the accidents occur, who can be held responsible and how to secure compensation for injured clients.
