Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Ladonia
The state of Alabama is home to thousands of motorcyclists. Although our state has a lot to offer for riders, there is a serious risk that they will suffer fatal injuries if they become involved in accidents. A report from 2019 stated that our state ranks 15th in the most dangerous states for riders.
Out of our state’s total number of fatal crashes reported each year, approximately 10% of victims are motorcyclists. The fact that riders do not have full body protection during collisions means they are more likely to suffer severe injuries in crashes. When motorcyclists are involved in drivers who are speeding or traveling in larger vehicles, the chances of being fatally injured are increased.
Many families are unprepared to deal with the consequences of a fatal accident. Not only are families forced to deal with overwhelming mental and emotional consequences, but they are often required to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses and burial fees. When motorcyclists lose their lives in accidents caused by reckless drivers, their families may have legal options available. Reaching out to a wrongful death attorney in Ladonia can help you determine what options are available to get justice for your loved one.
