Accidents involving motorcycles continue to increase from year to year. The majority of these accidents involve injuries and far too often, serious or life threatening injuries or death due to the very nature of motorcycle riding.  When a motorcycle accident has occurred, it is generally advisable to enlist the help of experienced lawyers that are affiliated with a good law firm, because such attorneys will often have years of combined experience representing injured motorcyclists and families in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois. Such a law firm may purposely limit caseloads to ensure that their attorneys always have the time and financial resources required to take on the insurance companies effectively in each case.

Generally, the same laws apply in cases involving motorcycles as in cases involving automobiles. However, there are some important insurance coverage issues that are specific to accidents involving motorcyclists. More importantly, the principal areas where accidents that involve motorcycles differ from auto accidents are as follows:

1. Proving why and how the accident happened.
2. Accident victims in cases involving motorcycles are likely to be more seriously injured.
3. Motorcyclists injured in an accident are more likely to suffer severe leg injuries (including amputations), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI).
4. Issues involving the “visibility” of the motorcycle.
5. Eyewitnesses (especially if they do not ride themselves) often substantially overestimate the speed of a motorcycle.

While it is important in any accident to have a prompt and thorough investigation, it is even more important to do so in a motorcycle accident.  Reconstruction of how the accident happened is often made more difficult when a motorcycle is involved because of the tremendous difference between the weight of the motorcycle and the weight of the vehicle that struck it. A good Chicago personal injury lawyer associated with a reputable law firm is able to work closely with accident reconstruction experts to quickly and thoroughly inspect the accident scene, document any damage to the vehicles, and preserve other vital pieces of evidence that can help the legal team establish and win your case in court.
