We Fight for Motorcycle Collision Victims Throughout Alabama and Mississippi
Cruising down the open road on a motorcycle is an experience like no other. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are at a far greater risk of injury than drivers of cars, trucks, and other vehicles. If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an Alabama or Mississippi motorcycle crash, consult the expert motorcycle accident lawyers at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys. You may be owed compensation.
Our Alabama Injury Lawyers Can Uncover the Cause of Your Motorcycle Accident and Any Available Insurance Coverage
While many factors can contribute to a motorcycle crash, common causes of motorcycle accidents and related injuries often include:
- Distracted driving
- Drinking and driving
- Failure to obey road signs and traffic signals
- Another driver failing to register the presence of the motorcyclist
- Bad road conditions
Even if a motorcycle crash victim survives a serious accident, they can face a lifetime of medical rehabilitation and treatment, and the costs can be overwhelming. In addition to struggling with their physical recovery, 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 for Your Motorcycle Injuries
After a serious motorcycle crash, you may struggle to hold down a job, and you’ll face the challenge of paying for your healthcare costs. To regain control, you should consult a motorcycle accident lawyer at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys.
Depending on your unique circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- 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. But getting the maximum compensation requires experience and knowledge of the legal system, and that’s where the team at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys comes into the picture.

We Guide Our Clients Through Complicated Motorcycle Collision Claims
After you’ve been in an accident, there are several stages to your case. In the hours, days, and months after your crash, you should take a few important steps:
- Call emergency responders to get immediate medical attention and file a police report, which will help document the circumstances surrounding your crash.
- If you are able, collect the insurance information of the other driver and the names and contact information of any witnesses.
- If it is safe to do so, take photos of the scene, 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.
- Call the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys. We can help you handle your medical treatment, the insurance claims process, and all the complicated paperwork related to your case.
After the motorcycle crash, an insurance adjuster will also likely contact you. Don’t be surprised if they offer you a settlement that is far too low to cover your losses. Don’t accept this first offer. You should not sign anything before speaking to one of our experienced Alabama motorcycle accident attorneys. Instead, politely ask the adjuster for more time and schedule an appointment with your lawyer right away.
Once your condition stabilizes, you will need to file a claim for compensation. Your lawyer 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. Your lawyer will then file a lawsuit, and you’ll go back and forth until both sides reach a reasonable compromise or your case goes to trial.
But in most cases, motorcycle injury claims don’t go to court. If your case does go to court, the team at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys will fight every step of the way to get the compensation you deserve.
