Atlanta, GA (Law Firm Newswire) May 16, 2013 – Bikers are extremely vulnerable to unbelievably painful injuries or death if they are involved in an accident. “No matter what amount of safety gear a biker dons, they are still moving leather targets, simply because they do not have the same kind of protection that a car has —- they are not surrounded by a steel frame, do not have air bags and are not wearing seat belts.
