You are at a higher risk of getting into a fatal accident driving your motorcycle than operating a passenger car. To make matters worse, a motorcycle is often not seen by other vehicles on congested roads. Add distracted, speeding, intoxicated, and drowsy drivers to the mix, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Motorcyclists are put at even greater risk when they are riding at night when visibility is lower. If you have been the victim of a motorcycle crash, you need a motorcycle accident attorney who has over 25 years of personal injury experience serving Chicago. You need the legal team at Malman Law.
