Motorcycles are no doubt dangerous, and most drivers take proper precautions and ride their motorcycles with all the care necessary.

When an accident involving a motorcycle happens, it is best to contact an experienced Chicago motorcycle accident lawyer for help with what you need to do to vindicate your rights.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

These are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • SpeedingDrivers who are moving too fast might not have time to slow down or stop to avoid hitting a motorcyclist. 
  • Distracted drivingMotorcycles are already more difficult to see on the road than other larger cars and trucks. When a driver is not paying adequate attention, it is even more likely that the driver will crash into a motorcyclist. 
  • Improper lane changesWhen drivers fail to check their blind spots for motorcycles before they change lanes, it can result in a collision or running a motorcycle off the road. 
  • Impaired drivingDrivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs will likely have a more difficult time noticing motorcyclists and driving appropriately around them. 
  • Left-turning carsWhen a car is turning left and needs to yield to oncoming traffic, a driver might misjudge an oncoming motorcycle’s speed or fail to see the motorcycle altogether. 
  • Violating other traffic lawsAny violation of traffic safety laws can result in a serious motorcycle crash and injuries. 

Do You Have a Motorcycle Accident Case?

To determine whether you have a motorcycle case, we will need to know more about the facts and circumstances involving your accident. We offer free case evaluations when we discuss what happened and advise whether you might be able to hold someone responsible for your losses. Liable parties might include:

  • Other drivers who were negligent and caused the accident
  • Employers of drivers who caused a crash while they were on the job
  • Motorcycle manufacturers who sell defective bikes
  • Government entities that allow dangerous road hazards

Once we determine that one or more parties should cover your losses, we can file the proper insurance claims and negotiate the settlement you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, and intangible losses like pain and suffering. 

If the insurance company is not willing to make a fair offer, we can file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court against the liable party and their insurer. We handle this entire process while you focus on your physical well-being.
