We Fight for Pascagoula, Mississippi, Motorcycle Crash Victims
Motorcycles are symbolic of freedom and the open road. Unfortunately, without a vehicle exterior to protect them in a crash, motorcyclists are often at a far greater risk of injury than drivers of cars, trucks, and other vehicles. Getting in a crash on a motorcycle can leave an impact on your life for years to come.
If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in a Foley, Alabama, motorcycle crash, don’t wait to consult the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys. You may be owed financial compensation.
Our Foley, Alabama, Personal Injury Lawyers Can Uncover the Cause of the Motorcycle Crash and any Insurance Coverage
Motorcycle crashes are rarely simple. There is often more than one factor that caused the crash, including:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Being over-served at a bar
- Failing to obey road signs and signals
- Another driver failing to see the motorcyclist on the road
- Bad road conditions
- Defective parts or equipment
However, it’s not always clear to injured people or their families the true cause of the crash. To understand the true cause and uncover every possible source of compensation, you need an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to investigate the most serious motorcycle crashes.
Even when riders survive a serious accident, they and their families often face a lifetime of injuries and debt. The stress of additional medical bills, lost income, and other life changes can make the ordeal of a motorcycle accident even tougher.

We Can Help You Demand Fair Compensation and Hold the Insurance Company Accountable
After a serious crash on your motorcycle that wasn’t your fault, many people struggle to get back on their feet. You may have difficulty holding down a job, taking care of your family, or paying your medical bills. To regain control, consult with a motorcycle accident lawyer from Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys.
Depending on your situation, you could be eligible for compensation that covers:
- Medical bills, medication, and physical therapy
- Lost wages and income
- Damage to relationships and quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional trauma and mental health issues
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages (to punish extremely reckless behavior)
These different types of compensation (also known as “damages”) can add up very quickly depending on the extent of the injuries you suffered and other details of your case. The insurance company will try and get you to settle for the lowest amount possible to maximize their profits. Getting the most compensation requires experience and knowledge of the legal system: that’s where the team at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys comes into the picture.
We Fight For Our Clients in Complicated Motorcycle Accident Claims
After a crash, there are several stages to your motorcycle accident case. To protect yourself, you should take a few important steps in the hours, days, and months after the crash:
- Call emergency responders to get immediate medical attention. After everyone is safe, call the police to file a police report, which will help document your crash details.
- If you can, collect the other driver’s insurance information and the names and contact information of any witnesses.
- When it’s safe, take photos of the scene of the crash, property damage, your injuries, and anything else that may seem relevant.
- Get evaluated by a doctor even if you don’t feel injured. This will establish a record of your medical condition, which protects your case later.
- Call the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys. We can help you handle your medical treatment and bills, the insurance claims process, and all the complicated paperwork related to your case so you can focus on healing.
After the motorcycle crash, an insurance adjuster will also likely contact you regarding your claim. If they offer you a settlement that’s far too low to cover your bills, don’t be surprised! This is a common tactic used by insurance adjusters to keep you from getting a fair settlement, and you should never accept this first offer.
You should not sign anything before speaking to one of our experienced Alabama motorcycle accident attorneys. To avoid getting cheated out of the money you deserve, politely ask the adjuster for more time to think about their offer and schedule an appointment with one of our lawyers right away.
Once your condition stabilizes, you will need to file a claim for compensation. When you work with an attorney who can fight on your behalf, they will submit a letter detailing exactly how much your case is worth and why. The insurance company (or companies) will respond. In most cases, big insurance companies will not accept the terms of your demand. If they reject your demand, your lawyer will then file a lawsuit. You’ll then go back and forth until both sides reach a reasonable compromise or your case goes to trial.
Fortunately, motorcycle injury claims don’t go to court. However, if your case does go to court, the team at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys is known for taking on tough cases on trial, will fight every step of the way to get the compensation you deserve.
