Accidents Involving Motorcycles
Deaths caused by accidental injuries are tragically common throughout the U.S., including Talladega, Talladega County, and Alabama. In 2009, nearly 121,000 Americans lost their lives due to unintentional injuries. Of these injuries, over 30,000 were caused by car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, and just over 26,000 were caused by falls.1 What is most unfortunate about these deaths is that many of them could have been prevented, if not for the recklessness and negligence of an individual or party.
When a person or party’s careless and wrongful actions cause the death of another person, it is important to hold them responsible. Under Alabama law, the administrator of the deceased person’s estate can file a wrongful death claim seeking punitive damages. These damages were created to punish the wrongdoer for the actions that caused the death. In Alabama, the time limit for filing a wrongful death claim varies based upon the circumstances, from six months to two years. Because Alabama’s wrongful death laws are intricate and complicated, those seeking justice for their family member should get experienced legal help.

Types of Crash-Related Injuries
There are motorcycle crashes that are relatively minor, with all participants walking away unscathed or with little more than some cuts and bruises. These accidents, tragically, are more the exception than the rule: the overwhelming majority of motorcycle accidents cause injuries, simply because motorcycle riders are not protected from the roadway and other vehicles by seat belts, airbags, or a metal car frame. There were 1,925 motorcycle crashes in Alabama in 2011, and 1,438 of them involved injuries. 98 were fatal.1
It is because of the high prevalence of injuries that motorcycle wrecks are so devastating for the riders. The most common injuries from these crashes include head, brain, and neck injuries, which can be debilitating and life altering. Such injuries can require extensive medical care lasting numerous months, and the associated medical bills can be very expensive. In addition, many injuries associated with this type of crash can change the victim’s life, preventing him or her from returning to work (temporarily or permanently) and enjoying life to the fullest.
If you are involved in a motorcycle crash, it is vital that you seek medical attention right away. You should document and receive treatment for all your injuries and the effect that they have on your well-being. Even if you seem fine right now, your injury could persist or could be more expensive than you thought, causing you extensive hardship in the future. It may become necessary to seek compensation for your injuries.
