Illinois Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle riders are a significant disadvantage when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. Riders are provided few protections, unlike those traveling in passenger cars. Motorcyclists are 27 to 28 times more likely to be killed in the event of an accident.
Thousands are killed each year in motorcycle collisions. Riders risk being seriously injured each they time hit the road due to the actions of inattentive drivers. Injured parties should consult with a qualified Illinois car crash attorney to pursue lost compensation for their injuries.
