Elgin Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

When the weather is warm, there are few better ways to enjoy the great outdoors than to hop on a motorcycle and cruise explore the scenery. However, with the pleasure of riding a motorcycle comes a heightened need to be mindful of safety. Likewise, drivers of larger vehicles are also responsible for safely sharing the road with motorcyclists. Nevertheless, accidents do happen. Unfortunately, the results of an accident between a motorcycle and a larger automobile are often dire for the motorcyclist. An Elgin motorcycle accident lawyer can help motorcyclists who have been injured in a collision seek legal remedy for their medical bills, lost wages, and, in certain cases, for their pain and suffering.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

In keeping the roads safe for motorcycles and other vehicles to coexist, all drivers should understand how motorcycle accidents commonly happen. Drivers sometimes make lane changes without first checking their blind spots. Because motorcycles are much smaller than other vehicles, it is sometimes easier to overlook a motorcycle traveling in the next lane if a driver does not thoroughly check his or her blind spots. Tailgating is another cause of motorcycle accidents. Because motorcycles have a much shorter stopping distance than larger vehicles, drivers who are following a motorcycle too closely underestimate the amount of space they will need to stop safely in the event that motorcycle makes a sudden stop. Parked cars also pose a hazard to motorcycles. Sometime a motorcycle may collide with the door of a parked vehicle if the driver suddenly opens the door without first checking for oncoming traffic immediately before opening the door. Sometimes other parties may be at fault in a motorcycle accident. In some cases, a motorcycle may have a defect in critical parts such as the tires or the brakes. If these parts fail, the motorcycle may perform poorly and cause a collision with another vehicle. In cases in which a motorcycle accident was caused by a defective part, the injured party may file a claim against the manufacturer.

Compensation for Injured Motorcyclists

While filing a lawsuit is often viewed as an angry, adversarial process, legal action is sometimes necessary to help victims receive the help they need. Motorcycle riders do not have the same structural protection cars and trucks offer when they are on the road. Therefore, a motorcycle accident may result in the rider sustaining injuries that require extensive medical evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation. Accident victims are often required to miss work while the medical bills pile up. Motorcyclists who are injured in an accident for which another party is at fault may file a claim in court to receive compensation for their injuries. An Elgin motorcycle accident lawyer can help injured victims understand their legal rights and pursue the compensation to which they are entitled.

Accident Victims vs. Insurance Companies

In many cases, the other party’s insurance company may offer the accident victim a settlement. Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes offer compensation that does not fully cover the victim’s expenses he or she will incur throughout the healing process. Elgin accident victims and their families are strongly advised against accepting an insurance company’s initial offer or engaging in settlement negotiations without first consulting an Elgin motorcycle accident lawyer to determine whether the settlement offer is appropriate in light of the circumstances surrounding the accident.

Help with Medical Expenses and Lost Wages

Motorcycle accident victims and their families sometimes do not fully understand the types of compensation to which they are entitled from the party who is at fault in the accident. Individuals who are injured in an accident that was a result of someone else’s negligence should contact an attorney to learn more about receiving compensation for:

  • Lost wages due to time off work
  • Medical bills and related expenses
  • Pain and suffering

Every case is different; therefore victims and their families should contact an Elgin motorcycle accident lawyer to determine which types of compensation are most applicable.
