Get Help from Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Aggressive and Effective Representation for Motorcycle Crash Victims

Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars and are often high-performance bikes.  In a crash, motorcycles offer far less protection than do enclosed vehicles, so when riders are thrown into the air or pinned under a car, they are much more likely to be seriously injured or killed.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a crash while riding, our Alabama motorcycle accident lawyer will fight to get the compensation you deserve. You may be facing a pile of expensive medical bills, missed time at work and other losses that can significantly derail your financial well-being. If another careless driver’s actions caused your injuries, you shouldn’t have to pay the financial cost in addition to the physical and emotional price you have already paid.

Whether you were injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, massive pothole, or defective bike, our motorcycle accident lawyers can assess your situation and explain your legal options. You don’t have to bear these difficulties alone. Let our Alabama motorcycle accident lawyers handle the legal hurdles so you can focus on recovering from the trauma you’ve suffered.

Compensation Our Mobile Motorcycle Accident Attorney May Recover

When you’ve been injured in a crash caused by another driver’s negligence, you can ask for payment through a motorcycle accident injury claim to cover your losses. In legal terms, these losses are called “damages.” The damages you may be able to get include economic as well as non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

  • Current and future medical expenses including doctor bills, hospital costs, rehabilitation and therapy and costs of medical equipment and devices
  • Lost time at work while you recuperate from your injuries
  • Lost future earning capacity if you can no longer work at all or if you are limited in your work
  • Property damage to your motorcycle.

Non-Economic Damages

  • Pain and suffering for your physical pain and mental and emotional trauma
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium.

In some rare cases, plaintiffs can also receive punitive damages, which are meant to punish the negligent party in cases where disregard for the safety of others was particularly egregious.

Our law firm will work hard to recover all the compensation you deserve.

How Our Alabama Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Handle Your Claim

Most people in Alabama have never filed a motorcycle accident injury claim. It is a very complicated process. To have a realistic chance of success, it is best pursued with the help of an experienced lawyer. When we take on your motorcycle accident injury case, you can be assured that we won’t overlook anything in establishing the strength of your claim.

To give you an overview of how the claims process works, here are some of the steps we will take to represent your interests:

  • We’ll carefully examine all the information and evidence, including interviewing eyewitnesses, to show that the other party was at fault for your crash.
  • We’ll identify expert witnesses for your case, which is especially important should your case go to trial.
  • We’ll help you accurately determine all of your losses caused by the accident to arrive at a dollar amount for your damages.
  • We’ll communicate with insurance companies and their attorneys on your behalf.
  • We’ll draft a “demand letter” notifying the other party of your claim and asking for compensation.
  • If the other party and their insurance company want to settle, we’ll handle settlement negotiations for you.
  • If they won’t settle for a fair amount, or if they deny your claim altogether, we’ll go to trial.

Most motorcycle accident claims are settled through negotiations and don’t ever go to trial. But we always thoroughly prepare every case we handle as if it will go in front of a judge or jury. Cases can be settled anytime during the claims process and even after a trial has started.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney Must Prove Negligence

To win your case, our motorcycle accident attorney must show that another party was negligent and at fault for causing the accident and therefore is liable for the damages you received.

Proving negligence legally means showing the existence of the following elements:

  • Duty: The defendant owed you a duty of care not to cause harm.
  • Breach: The defendant breached that duty through actions or failure to act.
  • Cause: This breach caused the accident that injured you.
  • Damages: You suffered damages as a result.

Many factors can contribute to a motorcycle accident, and here are some of the more common causes that may be negligence:

  • Drivers turning left who fail to see approaching motorcyclists or who misjudge distances
  • Drivers who don’t check blind spots or signal when they are changing lanes
  • Cars that follow motorcyclists too closely
  • People who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Dangerous conditions on roadways, such as potholes, debris and crumbling pavement
  • Dangers from the motorcycle itself due to defectively manufactured parts.

Other drivers commonly are to blame for motorcycle accidents. But motorcycle product manufacturers, public agencies tasked with maintaining roads and others might also be held liable in motorcycle accident claims. In some cases, more than one party may be liable, depending on specific circumstances, and our attorneys would name them all as defendants as they all may have insurance and assets that can go toward a settlement.

If your family member was killed by a negligent driver, our compassionate motorcycle accident lawyers can explain the process of potentially bringing a Wrongful Death lawsuit.

Answers to Your Questions from Our Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Alabama

It is normal for people who are involved in serious accidents to have a lot of questions about the claims process. Here are some of the more common ones:

How long will my insurance claim or lawsuit take?

How long your claim might take depends on how complicated your crash was, how serious your injuries are and how many people were involved. Generally, insurance settlements may take a few weeks to a few months, and if the case goes to trial, it can take a year or longer

Is it better to settle or to go to trial in a motorcycle accident case?

Which is better depends upon the exact specifics of each case. When insurance companies provide a reasonable settlement offer, it can sometimes be better to settle because you are guaranteed compensation. Cases that are won at trial usually result in larger awards than in a settlement offer, but in spite of an attorney’s best efforts, there is no absolute guarantee that a jury will rule in your favor.

How much is my motorcycle accident claim worth?

How much you might get will be determined by the extent of your injuries and other factors.  Motorcycle accident claim awards can range from the thousands of dollars into the millions. Your motorcycle accident attorney can review your case to figure out what it might be worth.

How much do motorcycle accident lawyers cost?

Our motorcycle accident lawyers at Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we don’t get paid unless we win your case. When we do win your case, we are paid a standard attorney fee from your settlement or award.

When you have Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana on your side, we will be there to answer your questions and address your concerns throughout the entire legal process.

Client Testimonial

”Alan was very responsive to our entire case. His team ensured that all of our questions were answered timely. We were out of state (on vacation when accident happened) and the ability of his team to finish the case, making it easy on our family, was amazing. I only called them because of their ratings and I can say, they definitely deserved the top ratings! Ours was very complex and insurance companies were not being helpful to me, which is why I contacted them. They took over and made sure I was treated fairly.” CWA Client (Google Review)
