Motorcycle Accident Causes In Illinois

In the vast majority of motorcycle accidents, the motorcyclist is not at fault. Most motorcycle accidents are caused by the drivers of other motor vehicles failing to see the motorcyclist or failing to yield to the motorcyclist's right-of-way. Motorcycle accidents are also commonly caused by speeding, poor road conditions, road hazards, aggressive driving, bad weather, lane splitting, and driving under the influence. Our attorneys carefully investigate the circumstances of your accident to identify the true cause and all liable parties. We pursue compensation from all those responsible to ensure our clients receive the greatest possible financial recovery.

In these cases, maximizing your recovery is crucially important, as the financial consequences can be devastating. You may be to compensation for medical bills (both past and future), lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability or loss of a normal life.
