Motorcyclists and their passengers are uniquely exposed when driving on roads and highways. Even if they have taken every precaution and are using proper safety equipment, they are particularly vulnerable to catastrophic brain, spine, and broken bone injuries.

At Cunningham Bounds, we understand the risks that motorcyclists face every day and we work to take action against those whose negligence severely injured our clients. Since the founding of our firm in 1958, we have become known as a top personal injury firm in Alabama and have obtained billions of dollars on behalf of our clients.

We’ll fight for your best interests. Call (251) 299-0101 to schedule a free consultation with our Mobile motorcycle accident lawyers today.


If you were in a truly minor accident with little to no property damage and your medical check came back clean, you might not need a lawyer to advocate for you. However, if your injuries required inpatient treatment, you missed work, and/or you’re still seeing doctors, an attorney can help you negotiate a fair settlement.

Insurers lose money each time they help an accident victim, so they’re likely to offer you less than you deserve. An experienced lawyer can spot an insurance adjuster’s evasions during the negotiation process and argue for compensation that meets your needs.

Top Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Alabama

While riding a motorcycle, you have to be constantly vigilant and keep an eye out for potential hazards. In typical scenarios, you are much more visible while driving a car than while on a motorcycle. Knowing the signs to look for and what could lead to an accident can help you mitigate the risk while riding.

Here are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Opening car doors
  • Speeding
  • Driver inattention or distraction
  • Riding under the influence
  • Lane splitting
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Inclement weather
  • Sudden stops
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Defective motorcycle parts or equipment

Motorcycle Accident Injuries and Your Rights in Mobile

Common motorcycle accident injuries can vary in severity depending on the circumstances of the accident. Motorcyclists are generally more vulnerable to injuries due to the lack of external protection compared to occupants of enclosed vehicles.

Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)
  • Fractures and Broken Bones
  • Road Rash
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Limb Amputations
  • Wrongful death


If someone caused a serious accident while you were on your bike, you could need extensive medical care. The at-fault party’s insurance should pay for all damages, but they may need a little pressure.

Protect yourself by taking these steps to gather the evidence you could need down the line:

  • Call the police. They will file an accident report that you may be able to use later. Record the names and badge numbers of the responding officers in case you need to follow up with them.
  • Get the name(s) and contact information of any other driver(s) involved as well as their insurance details. Write down the make and model of the car(s) and their license plate number(s).
  • Make a record of the accident bytaking pictures of all the damages, not just what happened to your bike. If weather or road conditions were a major factor, document them as well. Save a written or recorded voice note describing the accident as you experienced it and include as much detail as you can.
  • Talk to any witnesses on the scene and ask for their contact information. You may need their testimony to support your case.
  • Seek medical care, even if you don’t think you’re injured. Some aches and pains don’t show up right away.
  • Talk to your insurance company, but don’t speak to anyone from the at-fault party’s insurance. They may try sneaky tactics to pin the accident on you.
  • Contact our Mobile motorcycle accident attorneys. Cunningham Bounds can’t be there in the immediate aftermath of a bad accident, but we can protect your rights as you recover.
