The state of Illinois experienced a decrease in motorcycle accident fatalities between 2008 and 2009. Similarly, Chicago motorcycle accidents also decreased but by a wider margin – about 15%. Motorcycle fatalities are also down a little more than 16% nationwide.

While some of the factors causing fewer fatalities from motorcycle accidents in Illinois and nationwide may be economic, there are some easy things motorcycle operators can do to keep the trend going.

  • Wear a helmet all the time, even if traveling short distances.
  • Take a motorcycle safety course.
  • Adhere to all posted speed limits and traffic laws as if you were a car; i.e. no weaving in and out of traffic.
  • Practice defensive riding and expect that cars may not be able to see you or be aware of your location at all times.

Even if you follow the above safety guidelines, motorcycle accidents in Illinois will still happen. Often times accidents are caused by roadway hazards or negligent driving. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries or even death caused by Chicago motor cycle accidents than car or truck drivers.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a Chicago motorcycle accident, it is important to contact a qualified Chicago motorcycle accident attorney right away.
