Madison Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycles give you more freedom on the road, but they can also leave you badly injured when another driver is careless. Make sure you have a Madison lawyer on your side after a bike crash.
Motorcycles give Madison residents a freer way to travel around. Whether you’re spending an afternoon in Huntsville or enjoying nature at Joe Wheeler State Park, a motorcycle can save gasoline and let you be more exposed to the great outdoors.
Unfortunately, that can hurt you, too. Motorcycle accidents are especially devastating, and you could find yourself struggling to overcome your injuries if you don’t fight back against the driver responsible for the wreck. Partner with a Madison motorcycle accident lawyer from the Henry Dailey Law Firm to help you secure your rightful compensation.
Serious Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
When you’re involved in a motorcycle wreck, chances are good that you’ve suffered severe injuries. Even if you were wearing your helmet, the mortality rate for these accidents—more than car accidents, for example, is high. As such, you’ll need to assess your injuries and seek medical attention right away.
Even if you think you’re fine, take that trip to the hospital anyway. Not only will this prove your injury was caused by the accident—as the insurers might doubt you—but it also can also save your life. Some injuries might be deadly but invisible to the untrained eye. You might not realize you’re hurt until later. Internal bleeding, for example, might not be obvious at first, so get help right away.
A motorcycle crash can leave you with any of the following injuries:
Your Insurer Might Not Help
Unfortunately, even if you do carry motorcycle accident insurance, you might not get the help you need. Insurance companies are often more concerned with their profits than your settlement. They want to protect their funds, which puts your rightful funds at risk.
They may use the fact that you’re a motorcyclist against you. Because motorcyclists are stereotyped as reckless, dangerous bikers, the insurer might claim you are, as well. If they can pin any part of blame on you, you could be barred from recovery.
Alabama follows pure contributory fault laws, which means that if you’re found at fault for any part of your accident, your claim could be dismissed, which leaves you without the compensation you need to recover.

If a careless driver hit your motorcycle, you’ll need compensation to cover your medical expenses and damages, but that’s not always easy to get. The at-fault party isn’t likely going to want to pay, and the insurance company will try to use your vehicle of choice against you.
