Decatur Motorcycle AccidentHiring a Decatur Motorcycle Accident Law Firm

Many passionate motorcycle enthusiasts in the Decatur, Illinois area enjoy taking a leisurely weekend ride through beautiful Charleston heading south and east over to Vincennes just across the Indiana border. The route takes biking adventurers through numerous small towns that offer quintessential Midwest food and beverages. Tired riders can stop along the way to visit historic Lincoln Log Cabin State Park and the famous family home of Pres. William Henry Harrison in Grouseland.

The 200 mile round trip adventure begins in downtown Charleston heading south to Janesville along Route 2 past Bradbury and Toledo, Illinois. Turning east on Route 121, the biker and passenger rides through Greenup before turning south on Route 130 to Liberty Hill, Hidaldo, Rose Hill, Newton, West Liberty and into Olney. The final lap of the adventure is on eastbound state Route 50 through Lawrenceville and across the Indiana state border into Vincennes.

The scenic views and the open air takes the riders through beautiful farmlands on smooth road surfaces. Even the tight corners offer great visibility. However, there are numerous slow-moving tractors, farm equipment and vehicles that can easily pop up along the way. Because of that, it is highly advisable to stay aware even on the long straight roads through farmlands to avoid any serious mishap, accident or event.

Recent Decatur Motorcycle Accidents

  • In April 2014, a Decatur man lost his life in a motorcycle accident occurring at the intersection of Ravina Park and Oakland. The biker rear-ended a pickup truck attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Ravina Park. Witnesses claim the motorcycle rider was traveling at an excessive speed and was seen swerving around traffic just prior to the collision.
  • In June 2015, two male residents of Macon County lost their lives in a two motorcycle / one taxi accident occurring minutes before midnight at Cundiff Road on Route 48.
Motorcycle Accident Aftermath

The nature of riding a motorcycle with limited protection often leads to serious injuries for the biker, even if involved in only a minor crash. Typically, injuries to the lower body tend to be the most common, followed by severe injury to the torso or head. Many motorcycle victims suffer serious fractures and leg breaks that often cause permanent life-long disability. Serious head trauma or injury to the torso can be devastating and produce life-altering medical problems.

After a serious motorcycle crash, many bikers are unable to return to motorcycling again. The physical pain and emotional trauma often makes it too difficult or impossible to enjoy riding in the open air unprotected.

When the accident is the result of negligence, reckless or careless actions of another driver, the victim is usually entitled to receive fair and just compensation under Illinois tort law. This is because often times, the victim loses their quality of life and takes on the financial insecurity caused by the high cost of medical care, hospitalization, surgeries, treatment and their loss of income.

    ★★★★★
  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
    ★★★★★
