Illinois Motorcycle Accidents
A total of 3,756 motorcycle crashes were reported in Illinois in 2011. These collisions resulted in 145 deaths and 3,020 injuries. Motorcyclists are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in a crash.
Motorcycles are much smaller than other motor vehicles and lack adequate protection for their riders, leaving them at serious risk of injury. So many drivers are constantly distracted by passengers, other drivers, and technology, making them more likely to ignore a motorcyclist and cause a devastating accident. It’s important to have someone on your side aggressively representing your rights after an accident.
