We Know Motorcycle Accidents Can Be Devastating
All sorts of people throughout Alabama enjoy riding motorcycles. We certainly understand the thrill of the open road and the freedom that a motorcycle offers, but we also know how debilitating a motorcycle accident can be. By the nature of their design, motorcycles are fundamentally less safe than cars. That alone means that motorcycle accidents tend to leave riders with more serious injuries that are more costly and difficult to recover from.

Have You Suffered Any of These Injuries?
Injuries in a motorcycle accident can be particularly severe. If you’ve suffered any of the following injuries from an accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is quite serious, as damage to the brain can fundamentally alter your life forever. Most fatal accidents feature TBIs.
Your spinal cord is one of the most essential parts of your body. If it gets damaged in a motorcycle accident, you could suffer permanent paralysis.
These are the most common types of injuries in a motorcycle crash. They include any kind of injury to the legs and feet, including soft-tissue damage and bone fractures.
Blunt force trauma can cause serious injuries that aren’t visible from the outside because they don’t break the skin. These injuries include internal bleeding and organ damage.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcycle accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. The exact cause will vary based on the situation. It’s essential to recognize the potential causes to understand how to stay safe, and it’s important to remember that in cases of accidents caused by someone else’s carelessness, you shouldn’t blame yourself. If your accident occurred due to any of the following examples of recklessness or any others, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Cars changing lanes without looking
- Parked cars suddenly opening their doors
- Driving under the influence
- Cars turning left when they don’t see a motorcycle
- Road hazards
What Damages Can I Recover?
Medical costs, both present and future, are the most immediate kind of damages anyone involved in a motorcycle accident will have to deal with.
Injuries often leave people unable to work or return to their jobs. This can lead to extensive lost wages, which are recoverable in a motorcycle accident case.
Pain and suffering isn’t as easy to quantify as economic damages like medical bills because it covers emotional damage and factors that affect your lifestyle rather than finances.
Motorcycle Accident FAQs
In Alabama, the statute of limitations for any kind of personal injury claim is two years from the date of the accident or date of the diagnosis of a serious injury from an accident.
After an accident, we advise you to consult an experienced lawyer in a timely manner. In Alabama, if the Judge or Jury finds you contributed to the accident, it can prevent your chances at recovering compensation for your injuries.
Motorcycles are more susceptible to road hazards than cars, so if you were injured in a single-vehicle accident due to something like a road hazard, you may still have a case.
