We Fight for Motorcycle Accident Victims in Mobile, Alabama
The freedom of cruising down the open road on your motorcycle is like nothing else. Unfortunately, motorcyclists have a higher risk of getting hurt on the road than those motorists in trucks, cars, and other enclosed vehicles. Victims often face life-changing conditions, like broken bones, road rash, TBIs, and spinal cord injuries.
If you or someone you love has been seriously hurt in a motorcycle crash in or near Mobile, Alabama, you deserve support and healing. At Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys, we’re proud to stand by our clients and fight for their right to justice and compensation after a crash.
Our Experienced Alabama Motorcycle Injury Lawyers Fight to Uncover the True Cause of Your Motorcycle Crash
Motorcycle accidents can seem deceptively straightforward. However, there are often multiple causes of a crash, some requiring in-depth investigation to uncover. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Distracted driving
- Texting and driving
- Failing to obey signs and signals
- Failing to see the motorcyclist
- Dangerous road conditions
- Defective parts
Even when a motorcycle crash victim survives a collision, they can still be left with a lifetime of pain, bad memories, medical bills, medical care, and rehabilitation needs. Recovering from such a devastating experience and serious injuries requires compensation, support, and the best medical care.

We Guide Our Motorcycle Crash Clients Through Complex Claims
If you’ve been in a severe motorcycle accident, there are a few things you should do as soon as possible to protect your case. These essential steps include:
- Calling emergency responders to get immediate medical attention and a police accident report; both will help document the circumstances of your crash for the future.
- If you can, take down the other driver’s name and contact information and the contact information of any witnesses.
- If it’s safe and you are able, take photos of the scene, the accident, your damaged property, injuries, and anything else that could be relevant or related to the crash.
- Get checked out by a doctor, even if you don’t feel hurt, or don’t think you’re hurt “badly.” Seeing a doctor could uncover a hidden motorcycle accident injury that could increase in pain and financial cost down the road.
- Call the experienced motorcycle crash team at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys. We can help you handle your medical bills, treatment, insurance claims process, and complicated paperwork related to your case.
After a crash, a representative from the insurance company will likely contact you regarding your injury claim. This person is called an insurance adjustor, and they’re responsible for handling your case and getting you to agree to a settlement. Don’t be surprised if their first offer is far too low to cover the costs of your accident, and don’t accept this offer. In fact, you should not agree to or sign anything from the insurance company until you’ve had a chance to review it with an experienced motorcycle crash attorney.
Once your health becomes stable, you’ll want to file an insurance claim to recover compensation. Your lawyer will submit a letter to the company outlining how much your case and your injuries are worth and why. Then, the insurance company or companies will send you a response. Most big insurance companies think they can get away with paying victims next to nothing for their injuries and will reject the terms of your demand. Your lawyer will then file a lawsuit, and you’ll go back and forth with the insurance company until you can reach an agreement or your case goes to trial and is settled there.
However, in most motorcycle crash cases, claims don’t go all the way to court. If your case does go to court, though, the team of personal injury lawyers at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys team will be on your side fighting at every step.
