Protecting the Rights of Motorcyclists in Alabama

The allure of riding a motorcycle is universal among all bikers. Liberated from the confines of a vehicle, a motorcyclist can experience nature and scenery first hand, using all his senses to enjoy the adventure.

Because motorcycles offer less protection than automobiles, injuries to a motorcycle driver or his passenger can be life-threatening or lethal. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), motorcyclists are 8 times more likely to be injured, and “34 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash.”

The Birmingham motorcycle accident lawyers at Wininger Law Firm are well aware of the unfair bias shown to motorcyclists from law enforcement officers, insurance companies and even from jurors in a courtroom.

A common misconception is that motorcyclists somehow bring accidents upon themselves. This is patently false. Most Alabama motorcycle crashes and wrecks are caused in heavy traffic or in intersections by drivers of automobiles who fail to detect the motorcyclist, or who violate the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.

Litigating Complex Claims for Alabama Motorcycle Accidents

The Alabama motorcycle accident attorneys at Wininger Law Firm in Birmingham respect the legal rights of motorcyclists and are committed to ensuring that bikers are aggressively and fairly represented in conflicts or negotiations with the other driver’s insurance company. Auto insurers often place profits ahead of the facts and will use every tactic available to try to prove that you were in some way responsible for the accident.

Our skillful legal advocates are well-versed in litigating complex motorcycle accident claims and wrongful death suits. We have won record settlements for our clients since 1964.

Motorcyclists are entitled to receive compensation for their losses, including:

    • Hospital bills, prescriptions, all medical expenses (present and future)
    • Permanent impairment, disfigurement or scarring
    • Pain and Suffering
    • Emotional Anguish
    • Wage Loss
    • Property damage

Although motorcyclists take every precaution to drive safely and to use protective equipment, the negligent actions of another driver can cause terrible injuries to a biker in the form of head and neck injuries, bone fractures and internal organ damage.
