Pursue Compensation with Our Knowledgeable & Trial-Tested Legal Team
A biker’s greatest pleasure is waking up, suiting up, and taking
off on a motorcycle adventure across Alabama’s breathtaking coastal
plains and bustling cityscapes. However, it just takes one negligent driver
to change a rider’s life forever. According to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 5,000 bikers were the victims of fatal traffic collisions
in both 2016 and 2017. These alarming statistics don’t even include
the thousands of riders who were severely injured by aggressive, distracted,
and reckless motorists.
A serious accident can result in catastrophic injuries that necessitate
expensive surgical procedures, ongoing medical treatments, and lifelong
rehabilitative services. If you’ve been injured by the actions of
a negligent motorist, contact the

Determining Fault After a Collision
Motorcycle riders face countless dangers every time they cruise the roads
and highways of Alabama. Unfortunately, the average motorist tends to
get extremely anxious when a motorcycle lands in their field of vision.
A negligent driver may even adopt aggressive and careless behaviors just
intimidate or avoid a nearby biker, inevitably actualizing the collision
that sparked their anxiety in the first place.
In another common scenario, a driver may be too distracted by their phone
or a passenger to realize that a motorcycle is in their direct vicinity.
Sure, it only takes a few seconds to send a quick text, but this is just
long enough to jeopardize the lives of everyone on the road – especially
bikers who lack external safety options.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Fairhope can investigate your case,
identify the negligent party, and compile evidence that proves the at-fault
party is responsible for your injuries and resultant financial losses.
A motorcycle accident can lead to the following injuries:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Nerve damages
- Skull fractures
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
Many motorcycle accident victims struggle to afford the overwhelming scope
of their injury-related expenses. In a worst-case scenario, they may even
need to file for bankruptcy just to mitigate their debts and maintain
their prior standard of living. At Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers,
LLC, we don’t believe that an innocent victim should bear the financial
burdens of an accident. For this reason, we aren’t afraid to negotiate
with insurance companies and corporate legal teams if it means securing
a substantial settlement or verdict on your behalf. Our trial-tested attorneys
can research the accident, calculate your projected injury-related expenses,
and develop a litigation strategy that aims to maximize your claim.
By filing a claim, you may be able to recover the following monetary damages:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment in life
The statute of limitations in Alabama allows plaintiffs 2 years to file
personal injury and wrongful death claims. However, Alabama is one of
the few states that still abides by the contributory negligence rule,
which means that your right to damages may be compromised or eliminated
if the defendant can prove you were partly responsible for the collision.
The defendant and their insurance company will do everything in their
power to undermine your claim and protect their respective interests.
Fortunately, you can rely on Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers,
LLC to represent your claim and guide you through each phase of this challenging
