When it comes to motorcycle wrecks, people’s subtle biases against bikers and the complexities of Alabama injury law can make it difficult to recover the compensation you deserve. Thankfully, the dedicated personal injury attorneys at Petro Accident and Injury Attorneys would love to help.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a motorcycle crash, you need to consult with an experienced Alabama motorcycle accident lawyer. Keep reading to learn more about how we handle bikers’ complicated injuries claims and demand justice on their behalf.
Any honest motorcycle accident lawyer will tell you that every injury claim is unique and deserves a personalized assessment. Don’t be tempted by those online settlement calculators. They can never provide the kind of deep analysis that a lawyer can deliver. However, there are some common themes in motorcycle accidents.
Depending on your facts and circumstances, you may be entitled to:
Economic Damages: compensation for your lost income, wage-earning capacity, medical bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
Non-economic Damages: payments that acknowledge your emotional losses, pain and suffering, and the reduction in your quality of life.
Punitive Damages: awarded in the most egregious cases, these damages punish an at-fault driver or biker for intentional or highly reckless conduct.
When you meet with one of our Alabama motorcycle accident lawyers, we’ll help you understand your potential damages and carefully calculate their value.
When we calculate a biker’s damages, we consider every aspect of their life and their future needs. We also carefully research the insurance policies that apply to their claims, including liability insurance, personal injury protection policies, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Besides compiling your existing medical bills and lost income, we will also take into account:

Unlike a motorist, who is surrounded by steel, airbags, and restrained by a seatbelt, bikers are incredibly vulnerable during a crash. Even if you’re an incredibly responsible biker, follow Alabama’s motorcycle laws, wear a helmet, and a protective vest or jacket, you can suffer catastrophic injuries in a motorcycle crash — especially if you’re hit by a car or truck.
At Petro Accident and Injury Attorneys, we often see the following types of motorcycle accident injuries:
Even if their injuries aren’t fatal, many victims find themselves unable to return to their pre-accident lives.
They also may require extensive medical care, including multiple surgeries, chronic pain management, counseling, and intensive physical therapy and rehabilitation. During their recovery, they may be unable to work, care for their loved ones, or tend to their personal needs. This can be difficult for even the toughest person to handle. And to make matters worse, insurance companies frequently deny bikers’ injury claims.
