I love motorcycles and am a motorcycle enthusiast myself so I understand a motorcyclist’s concerns. Many of the motorcycle accidents that happen in Illinois are caused by drivers who do not see the motorcycle rider before there is an accident. A motorcyclist is not protected by a seat belt or the exterior of a car. There is the danger of catastrophic injury or death in a motorcycle accident. Even with a helmet and other protective gear, the rider is completely exposed to the full force of impact, and the resulting injuries are often extremely serious.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another, it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. We will tirelessly investigate the motorcycle accidents and uncover the truth. We focus on finding the root cause of the accident, and we vigorously pursue justice and fair financial compensation on behalf of our injured clients.
If you have been harmed in a motorcycle crash, you should know that the insurance companies will immediately begin investigating the accident and attempt to establish the extent of your injuries. Many insurance companies will try to reach a quick settlement with you, hoping that you don't understand the law, place fault on you because you were on the motorcycle to begin with, or assume you don’t understand the potential consequences of your actions.
Motorcycle accidents often can result in brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and other types of catastrophic harm. It may take months or even years to fully understand the long-term effects of such injuries. At that point, an injured victim may need surgery or other extensive treatment that he or she did not know about at the time of the accident.
Do not agree to any settlement offer without talking to an attorney. If you do, you may end up holding settling for way less than your claim is worth when it comes time to pay for future medical bills, lost wages and other expenses that may result from your accident.
Gasoline prices have been skyrocketing higher and higher. Motorcycles have proved to be a far more affordable means of transportation. There are more motorcycles on our roadways than ever before. Unfortunately, with the added motorcycle traffic comes added motorcycle injuries due to another’s negligent driving.
