Biker’s Arm from Motorcycle Accidents In Chicago

“Biker’s arm” is not a repetitive strain injury like tennis elbow – it is caused by impact. It is a common result of a motorcycle accident because you will instinctively draw in your arms in anticipation of an immediate collision, thereby causing them to bear the brunt of the impact.

The Danger of Delay

One potential pitfall arises from the fact that the pain of biker’s arm might not manifest itself immediately after the accident, thereby tempting you to avoid going to the hospital until the symptoms become obvious. Such a delay in medical treatment can give the defendant room to argue that your condition was not caused by the accident.   Motorcycle biker’s arm might involve nerve damage that could cause long-term immobility in your arms and fingers. If you work with your hands for a living, this immobility might cripple your earning capacity and justify extremely high compensation. Expert legal assistance is essential.

A Track Record Few Can Match

It usually makes a difference when you tell the insurance company that you have retained Malman Law to represent you. After all, most of them are familiar with our track record:

  • We’ve been practicing personal injury law since 1994 – to the exclusion of all else.
  • 15,000 satisfied clients can testify to our effectiveness.
  • Our opponents have coughed up over $200,000,000 in favor of our clients.
  • We win 95 percent of the time, and 95 percent of our winning clients receive private settlements.

A Word from a Satisfied Client

“Two years ago, I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet.” – Malman Law Client

Other Types of Motorcycle Accident Claims

Malman Law handles the following types of motorcycle accident claims, among others:

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, under certain circumstances you can. But even if you win, you will have to settle for reduced compensation. Under Illinois comparative fault rules, if your percentage of fault was:

  • between 1 percent and 49 percent, you are entitled to reduced compensation.
  • 50 percent, you are entitled to nothing.
  • 51 percent or higher, you are entitled to nothing and the defendant may be able to file a claim against you for his damages.

You can file a claim under the Illinois dram shop law, and you can win if the driver’s resulting intoxication caused your injuries. This law is useful if your damages are high and the defendant was uninsured or underinsured. As of January 20, 2018, the liability of a nightclub was limited to
$84,061.21
.

Be especially careful to observe the following dos and don’ts:

  • Don’t give out unnecessary information to the insurance company.
  • Do seek medical treatment immediately after the accident.
  • Don’t accept a settlement offer until you know how much your claim is worth.
  • Don’t attempt to represent yourself.

Most motorcycle accidents occur because a motorist simply didn’t see the motorcyclist. Make sure you understand how blind spots work, and avoid them if you can. Motorcyclists are relatively few on U.S. roads, and many motorists are simply not watching out for them.
