At The Rockford Personal Injury Lawyers: Marriett & Murati, we take the rights and privileges afforded to motorcycle rider’s seriously. Drivers in Illinois have an obligation to be aware of, and look out for motorcycles. We see the campaigns every year, the bumper and window stickers, and the public awareness campaigns every Spring. Yet Illinois still averages over 3,000 motorcycle related cases every year. Popular opinion is that, “motorcyclists are reckless”, certainly motorcycle related crashes are more severe due to the lack of substantial protection to a riders body if they are thrown from their bike. Helmets and riding suits can help minimize the damage in an accident and turn a fatal accident into one with bumps and bruises but the risk is ALWAYS out there for motorcyclists in Illinois.
It is true that in some motorcycle crashes, the person at fault is the motorcyclist, but there are also numerous cases of motorcycle crash accidents caused by drivers and other factors. Here are some common causes of motorcycle crash accidents in Illinois:
Some riders are lucky enough to walk away from an accident with bumps and bruises, but often, motorcyclists are significantly injured. These are examples of motorcycle injuries that frequently occur that can cause a trip and lengthy stay at a hospital, plus require a long term recovery effort to overcome the injury(s):
