Here in Florence, Alabama, there are plenty of roads and highways for motorcycle riders to get out there on great weather days. With U.S. Highways 43 and 72 close by, there are lots of travel options. Of course, motorcyclists also must share the road with other vehicles, like cars and trucks – and careless motorists can cause motorcycle accidents.
Because of the size and design of a bike, motorcyclists rarely leave the scene of serious accident unhurt, even when they’ve worn appropriate safety gear and followed all the traffic laws. Depending on the severity of the accident, a motorcyclist could suffer long-term injury or permanent disability. Some accidents can be fatal. And, worse, the negligent driver of the other vehicle could walk away without a scratch.
If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident, the injury attorneys at Mezrano Law Firm in Florence can help. We want to help ensure you’re compensated for your injuries and losses, and will investigate thoroughly into your accident to find out who or what was responsible. Talk to us today.
Motorcyclists know the indescribable feeling of taking out their bike on a beautiful day. However, because of the inherent lack of protection a motorcycle provides, even the most casual trip out on a bike can quickly turn tragic. In 2016, 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in accidents across the United States. Ninety-six of these fatalities occurred in Alabama.
The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
Even a minor motorcycle accident can cause injuries like broken bones or road rash. An accident with a car or truck, however, can cause serious and sometimes catastrophic injury that can leave the victim with life-altering injuries. In some cases, your loved one may have lost their life because of another person’s recklessness.
Some of the common injuries motorcyclists experience in crashes include:
Remember that helmets can save lives in the event of a motorcycle accident. Alabama state law requires bikers wear protective helmets while riding.
Unfortunately, you can be the safest motorcyclist in Alabama, obeying every traffic law, wearing all the proper protective gear, but you can’t stop a careless driver from causing an accident and causing you injury. Due to the lack of a protective frame around a bike, a motorcyclist is simply more likely to experience more serious injuries in an accident than passengers in a car or truck.
