Pursuing Compensation On Behalf Of Those Injured In Motorcycle Accidents In Northern Illinois
Although motorcycle wrecks account for a relatively small percentage of motor vehicle accidents on Illinois roads, they account for a substantial percentage of motor vehicle fatalities (information gathered from the Illinois Department of Transportation). With few protections from the road, the elements, other vehicles and debris, motorcyclists often suffer serious, debilitating injuries or death in a crash.
An Illinois Law Firm Protecting Injured Motorcyclists
Whether you were injured in a run-in with a car while riding your motorcycle or someone close to you was killed in a motorcycle wreck, reaching out to an experienced personal injury lawyer can protect your rights and obtain recovery for those damages that the law allows.
In many cases, a driver other than the motorcyclist is responsible for causing an accident. We commonly see many factors in motorcycle accidents, including:
- Failure to see a motorcyclist in a vehicle’s blind spot when making lane changes
- Failure to yield to a cyclist’s right of way
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Road hazards, construction zones and poorly maintained roads
- Poor weather conditions
- Drunk or otherwise impaired driving
- Debris from an unsecured load striking a motorcyclist
Motorcycle accidents often result in serious physical injuries. Brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and other permanent and debilitating conditions can lead to staggering medical bills and the need for long-term treatment. Furthermore, the mental trauma of an accident may require psychological therapy. It is our responsibility to you to aggressively pursue the rights afforded to you under the law.
Once your claim is resolved, if your health care provider or the insurance company places a lien against your award or settlement, we will continue the fight for every cent of the compensation you deserve.
