Dothan Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Injured in a serious motorcycle accident?

Motorcyclists face countless dangers every day while attempting to navigate our city streets and highways alongside cars, trucks, tractor trailers and other high-profile vehicles. While drivers of cars and trucks have safety features like seat belts and air bags to protect them in the event of an accident, motorcyclists are only protected by their helmets and the clothes on their back.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, at the hands of a reckless or negligent driver, you will have a greater chance of recovering the compensation you seek if you hire a skilled Dothan motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm. Our lawyers are highly-trained negotiators and litigators who are known for aggressively pursuing justice and fair compensation from all types of personal injury cases.

We have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements. There are many defense strategies that can be used by negligent drivers in an attempt to avoid taking responsibility for their actions. Business Alabama magazine recently stated that the lawyers at Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC are "some of the state's most skillful plaintiff attorneys," and you can rest assured that we will use our expertise to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Is Lane Splitting Legal in Alabama?

In Alabama, lane splitting is illegal. The main reason is because Alabama laws consider a motorcycle entitled to the full use of a lane just like other vehicles. Lane splitting can make other drivers nervous and it puts the motorcyclist in a dangerous position.

What Can Cause a Motorcycle Accident?

There are numerous things that can cause a motorcycle accident. Some are the motorcyclist’s fault, while others are caused by other drivers on the road. Here are some common causes:

  • Speeding (either the motorcycle or other vehicles)
  • Driving, or riding, under the influence
  • Lane splitting
  • Sudden stops (by both motorcycles and other vehicles)
  • Mechanical issues
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Left turns
  • Distracted drivers

What Injuries Can You Get in a Motorcycle Accident?

Motorcycle accidents are capable of causing severe and catastrophic injuries. The impact from the crash alone is enough to cause massive damage and long-lasting injuries. In many instances, when a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, he or she will be thrown off the motorcycle. Secondary impact points such as the road, another vehicle, a tree or any other object are what ordinarily cause serious head injuries, neck and back injuries, as well as spinal cord injuries. Fatalities in motorcycle accidents are very common as well. Other common injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Internal bleeding
  • Cuts
  • Scrapes (road rash)
  • Bruises

Recovering from your injuries after a motorcycle accident will take time and money. We do not believe you, as the victim of a motorcycle accident, should have to bear the financial burden associated with your accident-related injuries. You have had to suffer enough already. We are here to fight on your behalf. To give you the hard-hitting representation you need after such a painful and traumatic experience. Not all personal injury cases are simple and easy to resolve. Defending the rights of a motorcycle accident victim can be a complex legal matter.

We Stand Ready to Fight for You

To recover the compensation you are rightfully owed, it will first be necessary to prove that the accident was not your fault. When this type of accident occurs it is usually the motorcyclist who is the first to be blamed. Insurance companies and negligent drivers do not want to be found liable, so they will be quick to try and prove that you were at fault. If that happens in your case, we will not back down and we will not be quick to settle. We get to the truth.

We will conduct a thorough investigation to gather the evidence necessary to prove liability and help you hold the negligent party liable for his or her actions.

If you want an attorney who will aggressively pursue justice on your behalf, and who will not quit until you receive fair and just compensation for your injuries, then contact our firm and schedule to meet with a Dothan motorcycle accident attorney in Dothan right away.
