When you’re hurt in a bike accident with a car, you need a lawyer who has experience in these types of cases. Your insurance claim might not move forward like a normal car accident claim. The insurer might try to blame you, particularly if the adjuster isn’t up to date on bicycle laws and safety practices. That’s where the attorney Troy Marsh comes in.
With over 26 years of experience and a history of holding motorists accountable when they hit bicyclists, Troy Marsh is a hard-working trial attorney who will assess your case quickly, identify those at-fault, gather all of your medical records and bills, and present your claim so you recover the max.
When you or a loved one are hit by a car while riding a bike, having a reliable, hard-working attorney is important.
It could be the difference between getting what you need or some low-ball settlement. You could be suffering from serious injuries, and you need someone fighting to get what’s best for you and your family – not what’s best for the at-fault driver or the insurance company.

Getting hit by a car on a bike doesn’t automatically make the driver at fault. To recover compensation, you have to prove the driver or another party was responsible. It’s your responsibility to show the other party owed you a duty of care but acted recklessly.
Proving fault in a bike accident can be hard without an experienced attorney. Fortunately, attorney Marsh has been building strong claims for injured cyclists for over two decades. Let him gather the evidence, witness statements, and more. He’ll get to the bottom of what happened, make it clear that the driver was negligent, and that you’re owed compensation.
No matter the size of the car, if you’re on a bike an accident can cause serious harm. A helmet can help save your life, but it can’t prevent other catastrophic bike accident injuries, including:
A lawyer can’t turn back time and make everything right. All Mr. Marsh can do is help you move forward. He knows you need compensation for your physical and emotional injuries to do that. That’s why he demands you receive all the compensation your legally entitled to for your:
If your spouse, parent, or child was tragically killed after being hit by a car while riding their bike, call us immediately. You might be entitled to file a wrongful death claim and recover compensation for the value of your loved one’s life, funeral and burial expenses, loss of consortium, and other wrongful death damages. This can’t bring a loved one back, but it can assist grieving families with moving on.
After being hit by a vehicle, you likely went to the emergency room right away. Your priority should always be your health and safety. In the days or weeks after the crash, you might get a call or letter from the driver’s insurance company. We recommend consulting a lawyer before talking with the insurer about how much your case is worth and how to get the insurer to pay more.
During the insurance claim process, attorney Marsh will protect your rights with clear evidence that you are owed compensation. He’ll help document your injuries and how they’ve impacted your life to maximize how much you can demand. His goal will always be to get the insurer to negotiate for a higher amount. If an offer is good, he’ll say so. When it’s too low, he’ll fight for what you deserve.
Most injury claims are resolved through a settlement. But sometimes, you need to go to court. Filing a lawsuit gives you the ability to demand access to additional evidence through discovery. It also forces the insurer to take your claim seriously.
Troy Marsh has over two decades of trial experience. This makes large insurance companies take notice, and when they are forced to hand over documents and contend with an attorney who is ready for trial, it gives you the advantage.
Possibly, yes. Bike riders have to follow the rules of the road too. For example, you can ride in the road going the same direction as traffic, but you must stay to the right except when it’s dangerous or turning left. You have to obey traffic signs and signals. If you were careless while riding your bike and contributed to the crash, you could receive less compensation or prohibited from receiving any money.
If a vehicle caused an accident but didn’t stop to help, call the police and make a report immediately. It’s sometimes possible to identify the vehicle and driver. With this information, you can work with an attorney to demand compensation. Leaving the crash scene is also a crime, and the police could pursue charges against the driver.
Georgia doesn’t require bicycle helmets for riders who are 16 years or older. Of course, it’s safer if you wear a helmet, but it isn’t legally required unless you’re 15 years or younger.
Georgia has a Safe Distance passing law. Vehicles should put at least 3 feet between the vehicle and the cyclists to pass. If a vehicle passed you and came so close as to strike you or push you off the road or into traffic, the driver might’ve broken the law. File a police report, and talk with a bicycle accident lawyer.
