Motorcyclists are more likely to be seriously injured in vehicle accidents than drivers of cars or trucks because of the relative lack of protection their bikes provide them. This dangerous situation is compounded because of non-motorcyclists’ general lack of understanding concerning the physics involved in operating these vehicles, especially when it comes to safe braking and turning.
This ignorance is a recipe for disaster on the road and has resulted in motorcyclists being unnecessarily injured or even killed in accidents with cars or trucks when drivers of these larger vehicles stop suddenly or perform other similarly reckless maneuvers. If you are a motorcycle driver who has been gravely injured in a wreck with another driver through little or no fault of your own, you should schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable motorcycle accidents attorney as soon as possible.

Get the Compensation You Need
Many motorcycle and bicycle accidents are the result of collisions with cars or other vehicles. With no protective steel structure surrounding them, cyclists can be severely injured by a relatively minor collision. Injuries common to these accidents may include:
- Broken bones and amputations
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Brain injuries and paralysis
- Burns and road rash
These injuries may result in scarring or other disfigurement, as well as temporary or permanent disability. The accident victim may need surgeries, rehabilitation, long-term care and cosmetic procedures. Because the medical expenses will be significant, it is critical to work with an attorney who will fight for fair compensation to cover your losses.
Fighting large insurance companies and other entities
Alabama law is very clear when it comes to the contractual obligations that vehicle insurance companies have both toward their policyholders and toward those who are injured in accidents for which their policyholders are responsible. Unfortunately, if you don’t have a seasoned accidents attorney representing you, insurance companies can easily find ways to flout the law and defraud you of your due compensation without you ever knowing it. Don’t take chances with your claim after a serious accident. Make an appointment with us today and ask us how we can help you make insurance companies treat you fairly.
Extensive Trial Experience
At The Dodd Law Office, we are happy to go to trial for your sake if necessary. The truth is that insurance companies are far more likely to give you a square deal when you have an aggressive motorcycle accidents attorney at your side than they would otherwise.
