Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Thousands of Alabama motorcycle riders are injured or killed in motorcycle accidents every year.

  • Loss of Consortium

  • Medical Bills
  • Future Medicals

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents are much more dangerous than most car accidents. Bikers and passengers on motorcycles are much more likely to suffer a catastrophic injury as the result of an accident. Even small collisions can lead to serious injuries. Do not let the size of your accident prevent you from getting proper medical care if you have suffered any of the following bike injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Burn injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lost limb
  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Wrongful death

How much money will I get for my accident case?

This can be a very difficult question to answer until you fully recover. Every accident is different. The amount of money you receive depends on many things, including the following:

  • how the accident happened;
  • the extent of damage to the vehicles involved;
  • the type and extent of your injuries and medical treatment, including surgeries;
  • whether you sustained permanent injuries, fractures or significant scarring;
  • your past medical history;
  • the amount of your past medical bills;
  • the expected amount of your future medical bills;
  • the lost wages you have incurred;
  • the future loss of your earning capacity;
  • your age at the time of the accident and your remaining work years;
  • other reasonable costs you have incurred caused by your injuries, such as the need to hire household help, child care services, etc.;
  • insurance coverage available; and
  • if married at the time of the accident, your spouse may have an additional claim for loss of consortium.
