Illinois motorcycle accidents result in thousands of injuries and fatalities annually. According to the Insurance Information Institute, motorcyclists are much more likely to suffer a fatal injury in a motor vehicle collision. In 2015, there were approximately 3,506 motorcycle accidents statewide, resulting in 147 fatalities and 2,643 injuries.
Motorcycles offer minimal protection during collisions, resulting in a motorcycle rider absorbing the impact of their bodies. The State of Illinois does not mandate helmets, making Illinois motorcyclists twice as likely to sustain head injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact the Chicago motorcycle accident attorneys of Malman Law for a free case evaluation and legal consultation today.
Common injuries sustained in Illinois motorcycle accidents include the following:
Motorcycle injury victims who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence may be entitled to compensation. Injury victims who have incurred medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering can file a lawsuit to recover their economic damages. Injury victims who have suffered non-economic damages, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may also file a lawsuit to recover compensation.
The statute of limitations is the time limit by which someone must file a lawsuit. In the State of Illinois, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed two years from the date of the accident. It is important to speak with a Chicago motorcycle accident attorney early on so that the statute of limitations is confirmed.
