Alabama Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Motorcyclists are by nature far more vulnerable on the road than drivers and passengers in cars, trucks and SUVs

Operating a motorcycle is complicated and requires an extreme amount of focus. Deciding when to swerve or brake could be the difference between life and death for a motorcycle rider.

Every driver on the road has a duty to operate their vehicle with caution to ensure the safety of all other drivers, passengers and pedestrians on the road around them, including motorcyclists . Drivers who are intoxicated, distracted or are otherwise acting irresponsibly are especially dangerous for motorcyclists.

When motorcycle-involved accidents do occur, it is incredibly rare for the motorcyclists to walk away complete unscathed. The injuries they suffer, including severe brain, spine and limb injuries, tend to be significantly more serious than the injuries sustained by drivers and passengers in vehicles who are afforded the safety features of modern car, truck and SUV cabins.

This ultimately means motorcycle riders and passengers who are injured in accidents often require expensive, invasive treatments and lengthy rehabilitation, during which time they likely won’t be able to work or make a living. Their injuries may even prevent them from ever returning to their field of employment.

The severe financial consequences for motorcyclists makes it incredibly important they are able to collect adequate compensation following their accident. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, it’s likely in your best interest to contact experienced Alabama motorcycle injury attorneys who are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve and advocate on your behalf.

Cruiser Bike Accidents in Alabama

Sometimes referred to as choppers, cruisers are extremely popular in the U.S. and account for roughly 60% of the motorcycle market. Similar to the Harley-Davidsons manufactured in the 1930– 1960s, cruisers are produced by most major motorcycle manufacturers. Designed with comfort in mind, cruisers/choppers are ideal for longer rides on the nation’s highways, which is likely one of the reasons the majority of motorcycle accident cases involve cruisers.

Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney can help recover lost earnings, medical cost and pain and suffering.

Sports Bike Accidents in Alabama

Injuries resulting from sports bike accidents in Alabama have the potential to be extremely serious . Unlike cruisers, sports bikes are extremely fast and built for speed, creating a dangerous situation for the bike rider if a crash occurs. Accidents involving sports bike motorcycles can be difficult for inexperienced attorneys, as law enforcement investigators often place the official blame on the rider without taking a comprehensive view of all the potential factors involved. Hiring an experienced personal injury law firm with extensive resources may increase the injured party’s chance at filing a successful accident claim.
