Motorcycle Accidents in Illinois
There’s nothing quite like the sensation of freedom you get when you ride a motorcycle. However, with that freedom comes serious risks. Motorcyclists are much more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries in the event of an accident.
In Illinois, motorcycle accidents accounted for 15.4 percent of fatal crashes in 2017. This is true despite motorcycle accidents only making up around 1.1 percent of reported collisions. Injured parties should consult with a qualified Illinois motorcycle crash lawyer to discuss possible compensation.
