At Moore Law Firm, our motorcycle lawyers have recovered compensation for hundreds of motorcyclists who have been seriously injured. Although wearing proper safety gear and a helmet can reduce your risk of severe injury or death, many accidents involving motorcycles can have catastrophic consequences. In fact, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association, in 2016 nearly 10% of all motor vehicle fatalities in Alabama were motorcyclists. If you’ve been injured or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, our experienced attorneys can help you recover maximum compensation for damages such as medical bills, loss of income, pain, and suffering, or wrongful death.
Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents
As a motorcyclist, it is vital to stay aware of your surroundings at all times, as accidents are often caused by other motorists who fail to notice motorcyclists when changing lanes or turning left. Some other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Hazardous road conditions
- Sudden stops
- Mechanical failure or defect
- Lane splitting
Common Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injury or death because motorcyclists don’t have the protection of a vehicle surrounding them. Our motorcycle lawyers advise clients to always wear appropriate helmets, jackets, pants, and boots when they go for a ride. Read 5 Motorcycle Safety Tips From An Accident Attorney to learn more. Reflective gear can also be a lifesaver when it comes to making yourself visible to other motorists. However, even the safest riders can be involved in accidents that cause serious injuries, including:
- Fractured or crushed bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Road rash
- Psychological trauma that may lead to PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions
How Can A Motorcycle Lawyer Help?
Proving negligence in a motorcycle accident case can be challenging. Our seasoned legal team has the experience and investigative resources to present an accurate picture of what occurred. To ensure your rights and interests are protected, don’t give a statement or sign anything from an insurance company before you speak to a motorcycle attorney. Insurance companies are more concerned about their bottom line than paying adequate compensation to injured victims and may pressure you to settle your claim right away.
Don’t be fooled — you may think that an offer may be generous, but it’s often merely a fraction of the amount you’ll need to pay for costly hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. Not only that, catastrophic injuries can dramatically change your quality of life. Our motorcycle attorneys are your advocate and aggressively negotiate to recover damages such as loss of past and future income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, emotional distress, and other damages. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, our attorneys can assess your case and advise you on the best course of action to recover compensation.
