Other motorists often do a poor job of safely sharing the roads with motorcyclists, leading to dangerous situations and accidents. If another driver caused your Montgomery motorcycle accident and you required medical care for your injuries, you may be able to pursue legal action to hold the at-fault driver accountable and recover compensation.
A member of the Morris Bart law firm motorcycle accident team can answer your questions and review the basic facts of your case. We will help you understand your rights and make an informed choice about pursuing compensation. Call (334) 523-0664 now to talk to someone in our Montgomery, Alabama, office.
Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Serious Physical and Financial Damages
Motorcyclists are at an increased risk for injury in an accident because motorcycles lack many of the safety features of cars, including any type of protection from impacts or a restraint system. In an effort to promote safe riding, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency publishes a motorcycle operator manual that covers topics ranging from shifting gears properly to traveling through intersections to navigating around hazards in the roadway.
This manual also covers crash avoidance techniques, which are the best option when possible. Sometimes, though, it is impossible to avoid an accident. A motorist does not see you or breaks a traffic law, and you are immediately injured through no fault of your own.
When motorcyclists sustain accident injuries, these injuries vary from relatively mild or moderate to severe and even life-altering. Some types of motorcycle injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head and facial injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Broken limbs
- Other broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Burns and road rash
- Other serious injuries
The cost of medical care alone can drain a family’s savings and cause severe financial stress. This is especially true when the motorcycle accident victim cannot earn a living to help support their family. In some cases, the victims of motorcycle accidents miss months at work or cannot ever return to their previous job.
At the Morris Bart law firm, our Montgomery motorcycle accident lawyers believe you should not have to face these types of financial consequences when you did not cause the accident or your injuries. We may be able to help you secure a financial recovery. Call (334) 523-0664 today to learn more.
