Illinois Motorcycle Accident FAQ's
A motorcycle accident is often a life-changing event for the motorcyclist affected, with a host of consequences ranging from injury and medical bills to disability with long-term loss of income or earning capacity. As Chicago attorneys serving bikers across Illinois, we appreciate the emotional and financial impact a serious accident can have on you and your family. We also understand that each case is different in terms of the injuries sustained, fault and liability, and the insurance carriers involved.
Below you will find answers to some frequently-asked questions about your legal rights in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident under Illinois law. If you have additional questions or need more information on how the law applies to your particular situation, we invite you to contact the motorcycle accident attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC for a free case review.
Significant Injuries Experienced by Motorcyclists
Motorcyclists have little to protect them from the impact of a crash. Where the driver of a car or truck might experience minor damage or injury when colliding with another vehicle, the same impact can be devastating to a motorcyclist.
Many of our motorcycle accident clients experience significant injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Loss of limbs
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
We also represent the families of motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes.
At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, we are committed to providing motorcyclists across Illinois with the representation they need to receive the financial compensation they deserve. From the moment our law firm is retained on a motorcycle accident case, we begin gathering the facts necessary to establish the liability and damages aspects of your case—so you can be free to focus on getting well.
