Birmingham Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

For many, there is no better feeling than hitting the open-road on their motorcycle. Unfortunately, some motorcycle owners are not very careful when they ride. Because of this type of behavior, biases tend to exist against people who ride motorcycles. When an accident occurs that involves a motorcycle, too often the rider is blamed regardless of the truth.

The attorneys at The McCormick Firm know that motorcycle crashes can happen for a variety of reasons. Due to their smaller size, motorcycles can be tough for other drivers to see. However, there is no excuse for careless or negligent driving. Injured motorcycle riders deserve to receive the just compensation needed to begin putting their lives back together.

A motorcycle accident can change your life almost instantly. There is a large difference in size and weight between your bike and other vehicles. Not to mention your vulnerability as an exposed rider with no structural protection, can have horrible consequences in a crash. The risk of bodily injury is five times higher as well.

A common cause of motorcycle accidents in Birmingham is the failure of other drivers to see an approaching motorcycle. Motorcycles have a slim profile so drivers must pay attention, because when a crash occurs, the rider is usually the one who suffers the most.

Motorcycle accidents in Birmingham and throughout Alabama can result in a host of possible injuries, including:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Shoulder, hip, and other joint injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Severed limbs
  • Serious lacerations and cuts
  • Bruises, contusions, and road rash

In the most serious cases, such injuries could even be fatal. In 2019, Alabama had a fatality rate of 8.6% per 10,000 riders.

Our team will conduct a deep dive investigation into the details of your accident and the situation that led up to it. We will review all of the relevant details, gather useful evidence, speak with any credible witnesses, and determine the party or parties who should be held liable for your injuries. We will communicate openly with you so that we can have a full understanding of how your injuries have affected your life. If needed, we can even facilitate your medical treatment, allowing you to remain focused on healing.

Most Birmingham motorcycle accident cases are resolved through settlements with insurance companies. However, the path to a fair agreement is not always easy. Insurance companies and lawyers for the at-fault driver may attempt to blame you for the crash. They may also try to challenge the severity of your injuries in an effort to limit their payout.

Fortunately, when you hire our Birmingham personal injury lawyers, you will not have to deal with these types of issues on your own. Our qualified personal injury lawyers will aggressively negotiate with insurers and attorneys to get you favorable settlement. Should negotiations fail, our Birmingham motorcycle accident attorneys have the experience and skills to fight for you at trial if necessary.
