Birmingham Motorcycle Injury Attorneys
Exceptional Representation for the Victims of Serious Accidents in Alabama
Motorcycle accidents tend to be far more serious and oftentimes more fatal than standard car collisions. Despite the use of protective clothing, gear, and helmets, motorcyclists and their passengers are relatively unprotected in the event of a crash. Unfortunately, such accidents occur all too often. While some motorcycle accidents are blameless, many occur as a result of negligence on the part of other drivers, parts manufacturers, commercial vehicle operators, and others.
If you were injured or had a loved one killed in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s careless or reckless behavior, the Birmingham motorcycle injury attorneys at Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton are here to help. For over a century, we’ve been helping injured victims fight for the recovery they need. We’ve been recognized for being at the cutting edge of plaintiffs’ work by The National Law Journal and our Birmingham attorneys have received countless awards for their exceptional litigation work.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Proving liability in motorcycle accidents can be a complicated process. There are many causes of motorcycle collisions, many of which can be attributed to negligence on the part of someone else.
Some common causes of motorcycle accidents that may be attributed to negligence include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Rear-end collisions and/or intersection collisions
- Misjudged turns, especially left turns
- Violation of motorcycle right of way
- Reckless driving, speeding, or street racing
- Dangerous roadway conditions
- Defective motorcycle parts, including tires and brakes
- Drivers failing to see motorcyclists when changing lanes
- Opened car doors into a motorcyclist’s path
