Motorcycle Accident FAQ
Why are motorcycle accident claims different from auto accident claims?
Motorcycle accident claims are different than auto accident claims because there are often motorcycle-unique causes for the accident, injuries are usually more serious, there are different laws concerning motorcycle riding, and the physics of a motorcycle accident are much different that those involved in an auto accident.
Can I recover even if I wasn't wearing my helmet?
In Alabama, all motorcycle riders are required by law to wear helmets when operating their motorcycle. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, and you were not wearing a helmet, you may not be able to recover from injuries that could have been prevented had you been wearing a helmet, but you may still be able to recover compensation for other damages. The best way to determine if you are able to recover compensation for your injuries is to schedule a free initial consultation with the Mobile motorcycle accident lawyers at Long & Waite
Can I recover from a motorcycle accident even if I did not collide with a car?
Yes. For many motorcyclists, swerving is just another part of riding. Car drivers often fail to see motorcyclists, and as a result, the motorcyclist must swerve to avoid an accident. If you are riding, and a negligent driver causes you to be involved in a motorcycle accident because you were avoiding another collision, you may still be able to recover compensation for the injuries you suffer.
Do I need a motorcycle accident attorney?
