Opelika Motorcycle Accident Attorney
As the driver of a motorcycle, you face risks every day, but you count on your fellow drivers to do their part and obey traffic laws designed to keep everyone safe. When another driver fails to do that, the result is an unfortunate motorcycle accident in which you may sustain serious injuries. If this has recently happened to you in Opelika, you need to contact a motorcycle accident attorney from Pittman, Dutton & Hellums to learn more about filing a personal injury lawsuit. If the attorney determines that you were not at fault for the motorcycle accident, we will encourage you to consider filing a lawsuit.
Some of the items you may be eligible to receive compensation for include replacement of your motorcycle, your medical expenses, the income you have not been able to earn while recuperating from your injuries and payment for your physical and emotional pain and suffering due to the accident. If your injuries are long-term or permanent, an attorney from Pittman, Dutton & Hellums will seek payment to compensate you for future lost wages and earning potential if you are unable to return to work in the same position as before the accident.
In order to win your personal injury lawsuit, your attorney will need to prove that the other driver involved in the accident is solely responsible for causing it due to his or her negligence. The driver could have been speeding, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failed to yield right of way or any number of possibilities. It is our job to prove how the specific action or inaction of the other driver led directly to your injuries. We may need to review the accident report, your medical records or speak with witnesses in order to prove your claim. It may also be necessary to reconstruct the accident with the help of the highway safety department.
