Our Illinois injury attorneys are well-informed on the applicable laws associated with the operation of both automobiles and motorcycles in Illinois.

Motorcycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, such as when a motorist pulls out in front of a motorcyclist, when a motorist makes a left turn in front of a motorcyclist, or when a motorist switches lanes into a lane occupied by a motorcyclist. In the absence of protection afforded by a motor vehicle, motorcyclists are at an increased risk of sustaining severe injuries in the event of collision. With more distracted drivers on the road, due to cell phones and other electronics, the roads are even more dangerous for motorcyclists. According to the CDC, motorcycle accidents have increased by 55% between 2001 and 2008. For more information on motorcycle safety, click here.
