A Heartwrenching Reminder of the Dangers on the Road

The deadly motorcycle accident serves as a heart-wrenching reminder of how dangerous Alabama roadways can be for motorcycle operators. Motorcyclists are substantially more likely to be injured or killed compared to occupants of passenger vehicles and continue to be overrepresented in fatal traffic accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important to seek legal counsel from a motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you understand your rights and options.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by driver inattention. A driver turning left may fail to see the approaching motorcycle or misjudge the distance, having catastrophic results. If you or a loved one is involved in a motorcycle crash, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney as early as possible.

Obtaining Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident

Individuals who are injured or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident might be entitled to compensation. To protect your right to recovery, you should always consult with an attorney prior to signing anything or making any statements to the insurance company. 

At Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana, we provide dedicated, compassionate representation for motorcycle accident victims and their families. We work tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they deserve after an accident. Negligent drivers or other responsible parties should be held liable for these, often preventable, crashes.
