If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident in Bessemer, Alabama, Cory Watson Attorneys wants to help you. Unfortunately, all the freedom and exhilaration that goes with riding motorcycles comes at a price. Even the most modern motorcycles lack some of the safety features that make cars safer, such as airbags and seatbelts.
What this means for motorcyclists is that when they get into accidents, there is an elevated risk of serious injury. A Bessemer motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm can investigate your accident, file your claim, and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Our Firm Has Served Alabama for Nearly 40 Years
Cory Watson Attorneys prides itself on being a local law firm with the resources and the ability to win big cases. We’ve been representing personal injury victims since opening our doors 38 years ago. If you’re a motorcyclist dealing with the fallout of an accident and you need an attorney, we want to represent you.
It’s a sad truth, but if you’re a motorcyclist, you know that drivers don’t always pay enough attention to you. Worse yet, some drivers refuse to share the road with you and drive aggressively, all of which elevates the chances of a serious accident. Whether your motorcycle accident was the result of driver negligence or recklessness, you’re hurt just the same.
Making matters worse, the driver’s insurance company often rubs salt in your wounds by treating you like you don’t matter. It seems the only thing the insurance company really cares about is minimizing their payout to you. If they can get away with paying you little to nothing, they will. Cory Watson Attorneys wants to prevent that from happening.
A Firm with a Track Record of Success
If you’ve been hurt in a Jefferson County motorcycle accident, you must consider your next steps very carefully. It may not be fair, but you’ll only get one bite at the apple when it comes to making sure you get properly compensated for your injuries. Don’t you think you should have strong legal representation when you take that bite?
Cory Watson Attorneys has won over $3 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients. We’ve taken on some of the largest companies in the country in pursuit of a fair settlement for our clients, and if we represent your motorcycle accident case, we’ll fight just as hard for you. We’re not afraid to go against national insurance companies or their attorneys for our clients.
In our experience representing motorcycle accident victims, the opposing insurance company will do everything possible to see to it that your case is resolved in a manner that works for them. Obviously, their preferred outcome is probably not in your best interests. That makes it even more important for you to have representation with a track record of winning fair compensation for injury victims.

Liability in a Bessemer Motorcycle Accident
Believe it or not, there can be several different parties liable for the damages in your motorcycle accident. Many motorcycle accidents are caused by driver negligence. Because motorcycles are smaller vehicles, it’s not uncommon for drivers to hit them when changing lanes or executing turns unsafely. Following too closely is also another frequent cause of motorcycle accidents.
However, your accident may not be solely the fault of another driver’s negligence. Unfortunately, many roads and highways were designed in such a way that they increase the probability of an accident.
We’ve all heard of the proverbial “dead man’s curve” or driven down a road that has inadequate safety features (e.g., poor lighting, poor signage). Therefore, a government agency may be liable for your damages. We will take a comprehensive view of all the facts in your case, and we will hold all responsible parties liable for your injuries.
The Sooner You Call Us, the Better!
Being involved in a motorcycle accident is traumatic. In the immediate aftermath, it can seem like things are coming at you at a million miles per hour. With that said, the sooner you call Cory Watson Attorneys, the sooner we can start helping you with your case.
There is another important, practical reason for you to call us about your motorcycle accident as soon as possible. Under Alabama law, you have two years from the date of your accident to seek damages in your case. The clock on your two years starts immediately after your accident. Perhaps more importantly, the sooner you call us, the sooner we can begin collecting evidence in your case.
Cities and counties routinely delete traffic camera footage or other public sources of evidence long before the statute of limitations is reached in a motorcycle accident case. This type of evidence could prove valuable in helping us fight for you, but if you wait too long to call us, that evidence may be destroyed by the time we go looking for it.
