Motorcycle Accidents

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Why You Need an Experienced Chicago Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Anyone who is a diehard motorcyclist loves the feeling of warm weather and the wind rushing around when you’re riding on the open road. Although riding a motorcycle may be more dangerous than driving a car, there’s a certain level of freedom that comes when you’re on a bike.

Unfortunately, auto accidents are almost always more serious when a motorcycle is involved, simply because a motorcyclist isn’t afforded the same physical protection as someone operating a car or truck. Even if you wear all of the proper protective gear and abide by the rules of the road, one mistake with another vehicle can prove fatal.

If you’ve been injured while riding a motorcycle, you should seek an expert motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you in your legal case. The stakes are always higher for a motorcyclist, and if you’ve suffered broken bones – or worse – after an accident, then you deserve the kind of legal representation that can hold the responsible party accountable. Contact the attorneys at Malman Law today for a free consultation on your case.

The Role of Injury Lawyers

Despite what some motorists may think, you are not automatically responsible for an accident simply by virtue of riding a motorcycle. If you are riding a motorcycle safely and in accordance with the law, then you are no more at-fault than you would be when driving a car or truck. That being the case, though, any injuries that you sustain in an accident are likely to be worse than if you were in a car, since your body is exposed and relatively vulnerable.

If you were in an accident and now suffer injuries as a result, or if you lost a loved one due to the accident, you may be wondering what legal recourse, if any, you may have. If you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Auto accidents are inherently difficult to navigate, since fault must be determined, along with other signs of driver negligence. Since motorcycle accidents are so much different than typical automobile accidents, these can be even more challenging to understand; that’s why you need a motorcycle accident lawyer with a specialty in this type of accident.

Proving Your Case

Working with an injury lawyer is crucial to successfully pursuing damages for your motorcycle accident case. There is a greater burden of responsibility to demonstrate that you were not at-fault for the accident, so your attorney may need to take additional steps like recreating the scene of the accident to illustrate exactly what happened, and why the other party was responsible for the accident. This is not something that you could hope to accomplish on your own, so if you’ve been hurt in an auto accident while riding a motorcycle, don’t call just any injury lawyer – call one with experience in representing motorcyclists.

With the help of an expert attorney who knows Illinois’ and Chicago’s strict motorcycle laws and how to utilize them in your case, many motorcycle accident victims can recover compensation from the at-fault party for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Hospital bills
  • Lost income (past, present, and future)
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional distress
  • Damage to your motorcycle or other property
  • Rehabilitation / physical therapy, and even psychological therapy
  • Any other injuries reasonably related to the accident
