Because their bodies take the biggest impact during an accident, motorcycle accident victims are at a higher risk of serious injury than most vehicle accident victims. A light, two-wheeled vehicle is more susceptible to being tipped off-balance or otherwise compromised, which means the likelihood of injury and/or death is also higher.
To prove what happened in a motorcycle accident and who is to blame, you’ll need to investigate the incident quickly. Beginning the investigation promptly allows you to gather time-sensitive data such as surveillance camera footage and eyewitness testimonies – both of which can be lost in a short period of time following a motorcycle accident.
Additionally, courts in Illinois and Indiana generally require that you file all personal injury cases within two years or they will be dismissed for failure to timely prosecute. To ensure you meet every deadline and collect as much evidence as possible, hire a motorcycle accident attorney soon after the incident occurs.
Drivers often ignore speed limit signs. Driving at high speeds is reckless, and when a motorcyclist is hit, they could very well be injured or killed. Motorcyclists don’t have the same level of protection as vehicle operators, and their injuries are often severe. That’s why we hold fast, irresponsible drivers accountable.
Distracted driving behavior, such as texting or talking on the phone, causes tens of thousands of crashes every year. Similarly, impatient drivers who tailgate motorcyclists put bikers’ lives at risk on a regular basis. If you were impacted by the dangerous or aggressive behavior of another driver while on your bike, you deserve to seek compensation.
Drivers that operate under the influence of alcohol or drugs put everyone’s lives at risk, including their own. Motorcyclists are often difficult to see - but never more so than when another driver is under the influence. At Midwest Injury Lawyers, we have zero tolerance for drunk drivers, and we’ll hold them responsible for their actions in court.
When other drivers are making a left hand turn, they often miss motorcyclists that are in their blind spot. This leads to many serious crashes, and although it may be an unintentional accident, motorcyclists deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering as victims.
One Google search will bring up many different motorcycle accident law firms, but you need to know that they’re trustworthy. Ask how many cases the attorneys have represented, as well as what their outcomes were.
