As the popularity of motorcycle culture and motorcycle riding increases, so too does the number of motorcycle related accidents. There are a number of reasons why motorcycle accidents take place, ranging from poor weather conditions and other hazards on the road, to the negligence of either the motorcycle rider him- or herself or the driver of a car or truck that was also involved in the accident. It's all too common that car drivers simply overlook the presence of motorcycles on the roads, and therefore back into them or cut them off while merging. Additionally, since motorcycles tend to stop faster than vehicles, motorcycles are often rear-ended by cars.
There are some sobering statistics about the likelihood of motorcyclists to be involved in, or to be injured or even killed by, an accident.

Although motorcycles account for only two percent of all vehicles on the road, they are involved in over 10 percent of all crashes. Deaths of motorcyclists reached a record 5,037, or 12 percent, of all motor vehicle crash deaths in 2007. In fact, motorcyclists are three times more likely to be injured in an accident than those in passenger cars, and 18 times more likely to die.

However, this does not automatically mean that any and all accidents which involve a motorcycle were the fault of the motorcyclist. Rather, it simply means that you were unfortunately injured in a motorcycle accident, and have suffered. And while an accident might affect someone in a car, the aftermath inflicted on a motorcyclist can be even more substantial, since he or she does not have the added protection from the steel frame and airbags of a car. Lawyers in Alabama understand this, and they work for you to provide legal services on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve for your motorcycle claim.

It is much more conducive to a winning case, as well as to your present and future well-being, to place your trust in a lawyer who is extremely knowledgeable the motorcycle accident court system.

Though lawyers of many specializations may be technically qualified to handle motorcycle accident lawsuits, it is not recommended for those seeking representation in a motorcycle accident case suit to choose a lawyer who is not specifically devoted to practicing motorcycle accident law in Alabama.

Furthermore, the attorney will be able and qualified to handle all communications with insurance companies and adjusters, who might otherwise be able to trick or coerce you into making a statement that implicates you in causing the accident. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, be sure not to speak with any representative of the other drivers' insurance agents without first getting legal representation.

Most personal injury attorneys, including those who specialize in motorcycle law, will take your case on a contingency basis. This means that you need pay no money up front; instead, your attorney will take fees out of your award or settlement after the case is done. In this way, you can focus on healing after your injury, while your attorney takes care of the legal aspects of your case.
