Motorcycle Drivers love the freedom of this unique form of transportation. The freedom and exhilaration gained from motorcycle driving is tempting to many people. Unfortunately, this type of transportation is very hazardous. In 2011, there were a large number of Atlanta motorcycle accidents. Many of these accidents involved fatalities. In fact, victims are 35 times more likely to die in a motorcycle accident, compared to drivers of automobiles. Those that are lucky enough to avoid fatalities suffer catastrophic injuries, such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, burns, scarring and other permanent injuries that usually require the services of orthopedists, surgeons, neurologists and chiropractors. Long recovery with many hours of physical therapy usually follows.
