DuPage County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Lawyers for Motorcycle Accident Injuries Serving Lombard, Bloomingdale, and St. Charles

Statistics indicate that 80% of motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries or death, compared with 20% of car accidents. Motorcyclists do not have the protection provided by the structure of a motor vehicle or other safety systems, such as seat belts and airbags. When a motorcyclist is struck by a car or truck, they can suffer multiple different types of serious injuries, including bodily harm caused by the initial impact and by hitting the ground or other vehicles or objects after being thrown from their motorcycle.

In many cases, motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of other drivers on the road. Drivers who fail to follow traffic laws or who do not take the proper steps to protect the safety of others may be held liable for a motorcyclist's injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important to contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer who can review your case and help you seek the compensation you deserve.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, we have more than 40 years of experience handling motorcycle accident claims for clients throughout DuPage County and the surrounding areas. Our team of motorcycle accident attorneys will work tirelessly to help you seek the full amount of compensation you are entitled to under the law.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

There are numerous factors that can contribute to motorcycle accidents. Limited visibility at intersections can be a significant issue in these situations. Trees and shrubbery, parked vehicles, and buildings often obstruct drivers' clear view of a motorcycle. The visibility factor carries over to highways as well. Motorcycles often are hidden between two larger vehicles, such as a combination of tractor-trailers, buses, SUVs, RVs, dump trucks, cement mixers, tankers, and other large trucks. Fog, rain, snow and hail also reduce the chances that a motorcycle will be seen by other vehicles in time to avoid an accident. Uneven pavement, potholes, and other road hazards, as well as defective parts and equipment on motorcycles, are other potential causes of motorcycle accidents.

In many cases, blame for motorcycle accidents may be attributed to inattentive drivers. Distracted driving may cause drivers to fail to see motorcycles near their vehicle, and a driver who is texting or making a phone call may turn in front of a motorcycle or force a motorcyclist off the road when changing lanes without checking their blind spot. Traffic violations such as speeding or tailgating are also common causes of motorcycle accidents, and a driver may collide with a motorcycle from the rear if they are unable to slow down in time.

Steps to Take After a Motorcycle Accident

As with a vehicle accident, the same essential steps should be followed if you are involved in a motorcycle accident. You need to get:

  • Witness statements;
  • Names, addresses, and insurance information for everyone involved;
  • A police report;
  • Photos of the accident scene;
  • Photos of your injuries;
  • Information about the medical treatment you need;
  • A copy of your medical record; and
  • Receipts for medication and doctor's office visits.

Above all, when someone else's negligence caused your injuries, consult an experienced personal injury lawyer who will protect your legal rights, give you the leverage you need when dealing with tough insurance company representatives, and ensure you obtain full compensation for your injuries.
