Mobile Motorcycle Accidents

Alabama’s status as a Sun Belt state means residents have a greater appreciation for motorcycle riding, not to mention greater opportunity in general. Mobile is right on the scenic Gulf of Mexico, and sees plenty of good weather all year round. Unfortunately, this leads to a higher fatality count, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Some drivers fail to respect motorcyclists’ rights, going so far as to resent their presence on the road. Hostility towards motorcyclists can lead to serious accidents, resulting in major injuries, long-term permanent disability, and even death.

At Morgan & Morgan’s Mobile office, we understand the terrible reality that motorcyclists face every day, but particularly when they find themselves in an accident. Fill out our free case evaluation form to learn how our attorneys may be able to help you.

Challenges Faced by Alabama Motorcycle Riders

According to the Insurance Information Institute and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in an accident than occupants of any other type of vehicle. Motorcycles are also more likely to be involved in accidents to begin with.

Motorcycles are smaller and less visible, and can get kicked to the curb when it comes to sharing the road. It’s far too easy for a careless motorist to allow motorcycles into their blind spot, to say nothing of misjudging speed and distance, or even failing to see them at all.

Common driver behaviors like sudden left turns or lane changes can impact motorcyclists even if they don’t hit them, running them off the road or forcing them to make a dangerous maneuver to avoid getting hit. You might fly over the handlebars, flip, or have to bring your bike dangerously close to the ground. A motorcycle accident lawyer like those at Morgan & Morgan can help you assess and determine your position and fight for your rights in these incidents.

Common Motorcycle Injuries in Alabama

Any motor vehicle accident can cause serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries affecting motorcycle drivers in Alabama are related to the spine and head in particular.

It is true, but unfortunate, that traumatic brain injury and spinal injuries can occur in a motorcycle accident, even when a rider is wearing the proper safety equipment like a heavy jacket and a strong helmet.

Even small accidents can cause devastating injuries, and brain or spinal injuries are particularly insidious. They might take weeks or months to appear, and could be minimized by insurance companies in the meantime unless backed up with strong medical evidence.

For this reason, you should count on a strong, Mobile-based attorney who understands the city’s judicial system, and can help you solve your case successfully.
