The Chicago-Sun Times reports that “A Naperville man whose car struck a couple as they rode a motorcycle last month had posted photos on Facebook shortly before the accident touting how he was “ready to drive at 90 mph,” according to a lawsuit filed by the driver of the motorcycle.”

At the beginning of September, Michael Dunker and Corrine Smith were injured when their motorcycle was hit by a black 2004 Honda Accord. The driver of the Accord, Revanth Vema crossed the center line and struck another car before careening into the motorcycle, which was stopped at the time.

Vema is charged with driving on the wrong side of the road and is awaiting trial. Now he is also named in a lawsuit by Dunker and Smith. According to their Chicago motorcycle accident attorney, several pre-crash photographs of Vema’s car were posted on his Facebook page along with a caption about driving excessively fast.

It is unknown how fast Vema was driving at the time of the crash, the Chicago motorcycle accident attorney has indicated that the car was traveling at a very high rate of speed, based on various eyewitness accounts.

It remains to be seen how much bearing Vema’s social media account will have on the outcome of his court case or the motorcycle accident lawsuit; however, in hindsight it certainly seems to have been an ill-advised post.

Chicago Motorcycle Accidents

Because motorcyclists often travel speeds comparable with passenger vehicles but with much less protection, Chicago motorcycle accident lawyers explain that they are often significantly more injured in accidents. For this reason, drivers need to aware of all motorists on the road – especially motorcyclists – and drive carefully and courteously to avoid motorcycle accidents in Chicago and the surrounding area.

If you or a loved one are the unfortunate victims of a Chicago motorcycle accident, do not hesitate to contact a Chicago personal injury attorney right away. We can help you receive compensation to help pay for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
