Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than motor vehicles.  When a motorcyclist crashes, the motorcyclist lacks the protection of an enclosed vehicle making the individual more likely to be severely injured or even killed.  According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the number of deaths on motorcycles was over 27 times the number of cars.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates there were 4,668 motorcyclists killed in 2012.  Of the 4,668 motorcyclists killed in traffic crashes, 94 percent (4,399) were riders and 6 percent (269) were passengers.  The NHTSA also found that 88,000 motorcyclist were injured in 2013 alone.

    While there have been efforts to make the roads safer for motorcyclists, there is still a substantial danger to every motorcycle rider from the larger vehicles they share the road with every day. According to the 2014 Illinois Crash Facts and Statistics, there were 3,411 motorcycle crashes in Illinois injuring over 2,500 motorcyclists.

    In all matters involving motorcycle collisions, it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident and/or conduct in question, and to file a lawsuit prior to deadline imposed by the statute of limitations.
