Pharmaceutical products contaminated with fungal meningitis can result in serious illness and sometimes fatal infections among all members of the population,…
It’s well understood that motorcycle riders risk serious injury in an accident because they do not have a vehicle’s shell to protect them from harm. This is why most motorcyclists in Mobile and elsewhere around Alabama take rider training and licensing seriously. Unfortunately, even safe motorcyclists are hurt in accidents caused by irresponsible drivers in cars and trucks who do not take sharing the road seriously.
The Mobile motorcycle accident lawyers of Belt & Bruner, P.C., believe in holding motorists accountable if their driving results in injury to motorcyclists or their passengers. If you have been seriously injured in a Mobile-area motorcycle accident that was not your fault, contact us by phone or by completing our online form. You may have a right to compensation.
Motorcycle Accidents on the Rise in Alabama
Alabama Traffic Crash Facts reports that between 2002 and 2011, motor vehicle crashes in general declined by 9 percent. However, during that same time period, the number of motorcycle and motor scooter accidents increased by 76.6 percent.
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by car and truck drivers. Too often, drivers claim that they did not see the motorcycle. This is no excuse.
In other cases, the same factors that contribute to many car accidents are found after investigating a motorcycle accident, such as speeding and other types of aggressive driving, drunk and drugged driving, distracted driving and fatigued driving.
Motorcyclists also face hazards that are unique to two-wheeled vehicles, including faulty road design, construction or maintenance or improperly designated work zones.
At Belt & Bruner, P.C., we understand the unique factors present in motorcycle crashes, including the increased likelihood of severe injuries. Our motorcycle accident investigations include medical consultations to determine the full extent and costs of crash victims’ injuries. We also work with crash reconstruction engineers to determine whether road conditions played a role in a motorcycle wreck and whether third parties share liability.
