Many people enjoy the freedom of riding motorcycles. However, another motorist’s negligence can greatly enhance the danger of serious injury. Because of the nature of these accidents, motorcycle accident injuries can be catastrophic and change a person’s life.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else, contact an Alabama motorcycle injury lawyer at Belt, Bruner, & Barnett P.C. Our attorneys have significant experience representing people injured in motorcycle accidents and fighting for the maximum available compensation for their losses.
The types of injury a rider can sustain in an accident are innumerable, but certain injuries are more common than others. Common types of motorcycle accident injuries include:
Many motorcycle accident injuries lead to long-term impairments or disability. Injuries to limbs and extremities can reduce a person’s physical capabilities. If a rider had a physically demanding job, they may be off work for a significant period of time or be unable to return to this career at all.
Many of the effects of a traumatic brain injury can make it difficult for a person to live independently. Injury to a person’s brain can alter their sensation, emotions, thinking, and language. Riders who sustain a moderate to severe TBI may no longer be able to consistently balance well, which means they are unlikely to get back on their bike. Their friends and family may notice changes in their personality, such as depression or aggressive behavior. They may have difficulty speaking or expressing themselves clearly. TBI sufferers can also have memory issues.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another rider or someone in a passenger vehicle or truck, then you may be able to bring a claim against that person in court. If your attorney can show that the other person’s negligence was the cause of your injuries, than you may be able to recover:
The exact amount of your settlement can’t be predicted because a number of factors can determine non-economic damages. You can show the amount of your medical bills and lost wages, but there’s discretion in compensating you for your pain.

It’s been three years, and during that time they have been in touch with me every step of the way. I can’t thank this firm enough.
I would certainly recommend Belt, Bruner & Barnett, P.C., because of their knowledge and expertise. They’re wonderful to work with.
He [Keith Belt] worked relentlessly and went above and beyond the call of duty. He’s just an incredible man and an incredible attorney.
