Illinois Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle riders face a unique set of roadway risks. When involved in a collision, riders are 27 times more likely to suffer from fatal injuries. Thousands of motorcyclists are killed each year across the country.
Drivers fail to look out for motorcyclists like they should, causing serious crashes.
