Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Mobile, AL
Cruising down the open road on a motorcycle is an experience like no other. Despite this exhilaration and freedom, a motorcycle accident can still occur. In fact, a motorcyclist is at a far greater risk to suffer from injuries in an accident than the driver of any car, truck or other vehicles. If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in the Mobile, Daphne, or Foley, Alabama areas, regardless of the circumstances, consult with an expert motorcycle accident attorney at Citrin law firm. You may be eligible to receive compensation for any injuries and/or property damage that you may have received.

Common Causes Of Motorcycle Crashes
While there can be many factors that contribute to a motorcycle crash, there are some common reasons that have proven consistent over many years of monitoring these types of collisions.
Some common causes of motorcycle injury accidents may include:
- Car driver distraction
- Drinking and driving
- Failure to obey road signs and traffic signals
- Car driver failure to register the presence of the motorcyclist
- Bad road conditions
In many instances, the resulting costs of medical treatment for motorcycle accident injuries can be extremely challenging for those injured and their families. In addition to physical recovery, the stress of additional medical bills or loss of income can make the experience of a motorcycle accident even tougher.
Compensation for Motorcycle Injuries
When you’re involved in a motorcycle accident, the damage can be truly catastrophic, changing your life forever. When this happens, you may well not be able to hold down a job anymore, and you’re still faced with the challenge of paying for ongoing healthcare costs which are getting more expensive by the day. You are entitled to collect compensation for these injuries and more.
Some of the damages you are entitled to collect include:
- Medical bills, medication, and physical therapy
- Lost wages and loss of potential future compensation
- Damage to relationships and quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional trauma and mental health issues
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages (in only the very worst cases)
These damages can amount to hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars, depending on the extent of the injuries you have suffered. Of course, getting the full scale of compensation requires having experienced and knowledgeable legal help, and that’s where Andy Citrin comes into the picture.
How Your Case Proceeds
When you’re in an accident, there are several stages to your case. It all starts right at the accident scene, where it’s imperative that you get the insurance information of the other driver and the names and contact of any witnesses. You should get seen by a doctor, even if you don’t feel injured, so that it’s on record. You should file a police report, which will help you remember the details of your story as you go. Take photos of the scene and collect any evidence you can.
You will be contacted by an insurance adjuster who will kindly tender an offer that may be insultingly low. Don’t ever sign off on anything before speaking to your attorney. You could damage your case. You are always within your rights to refer anyone to your lawyer for discussion.
From there the process of negotiation begins. You’ll file a claim for compensation and a letter detailing how much you think your case is worth. The other side will respond by low-balling your offer with reasons they think your claim isn’t valid. This dance will go back and forth until, usually, both sides reach a reasonable compromise. The better your attorney is, the higher this final number will be for you.
In most cases, injury claims don’t go to court, because there’s little to value in a heated court battle for either side. Court battles tend to be an all-or-nothing affair, which is risky at best. If, however, the case does go to court, Andy Citrin will fight every step of the way to make sure you get the full compensation you deserve.
