Can You Sue After a Negligent Motorcycle Rider?
You may be able to sue the motorcycle rider who caused your injuries. Like all motorists in Alabama, motorcycle riders have a responsibility to obey traffic laws. Violating the rules of the road can be considered a breach of their duty of care.
Negligent acts that may cause a motorcycle accident include:
- Operating a motorcycle without a license
- Lane splitting
- Changing lanes without signaling
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Stunts or tricks
If the motorcycle rider who caused your accident was issued a citation for a moving violation, that may help your case. However, a personal injury lawsuit is a civil matter. You may be able to sue the at-fault driver regardless of the legal repercussions they face as a result of their actions.

Morris Bart Montgomery negligent motorcycle rider accident attorneys can help you with your case as soon as you enlist our services. While you may want to reach maximum recovery before starting your case to know the full extent of your damages, don’t wait too long.
Alabama traffic collisions have a two-year statute of limitations. You must file your lawsuit before this deadline passes or you will lose your opportunity to seek damages. Two years may sound like a long time but we need to investigate your case, collect evidence, and negotiate a settlement. Insurance companies use settlement tactics that may cause delays.
