Baldwin County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Did you know that a motorcyclist is 29 times more likely to die in an accident than a vehicle occupant? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that over 80 percent of all motorcycle crashes either cause injuries or death to motorcyclists, and these crash victims or their families deserve proper compensation from liable parties. If you are in this position, learn how a Baldwin County motorcycle accident attorney can help you pursue an injury claim.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles crash for various reasons, many of which are the fault of another party:
- Distracted driving – Distracted drivers have a difficult time seeing larger cars and trucks, and the chances they will miss a smaller motorcycle are significant.
- Drunk driving – Impaired drivers often swerve into other lanes or oncoming traffic, or they might fail to see a motorcyclist and cause a crash.
- Aggressive driving – Some drivers simply do not like sharing the road with motorcycles, and these drivers might tailgate, cut off bikers, or take other dangerous action that leads to a crash.
- Other traffic violations – Running red lights, speeding, failing to yield, and other violations can all result in serious accidents.
If someone else was to blame for a motorcycle crash, injured victims can hold that party liable for their losses. Losses can include medical expenses, future medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. The process of seeking compensation can be complicated, so allow our attorneys to help while you focus on your physical recovery.
