Naperville Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Motorcycle riders driving through Naperville will encounter a truly scenic thoroughfare. The trees and grasslands are gorgeous, the sun will likely be shining, especially in the summer months, and the freshly paved roads are nearly defect-free and ensure an especially smooth ride through the countryside. While all of this is fun and great, there are still opportunities for motorcyclists to be involved in accidents, some of which could be deadly. Oftentimes it’s not through the fault of the motorcycle rider, which makes driving defensively even harder than it already is. As a result of all of this, it becomes even more important than ever to incorporate a defensive driving strategy that accounts for the fact that drivers often don’t see and don’t account for motorcyclists. For those times that all of that becomes avoidable and an accident happens, you can count on our law firm to provide you with the peace of mind and service that you deserve.

In this post, we’re going to take a look at just what this type of injury is, what kind of legal recourse you can expect to take, and what kind of compensation you can expect to be receiving off of one of these injuries. Let’s begin with describing what one of these injuries is.
What is this injury?
This type of injury is when a motorcyclist is struck by a car through no fault of the motorcycle rider. This type of injury can run the gamut from superficial wounds to traumatic brain injury. When it is the case of traumatic brain injury, oftentimes symptoms don’t present themselves for up to weeks after the accident, so this type of injury can be especially dangerous. As a result, you should stay on top of traumatic brain injuries and make sure that you haven’t suffered one after a motorcycle accident.

You can also suffer lacerations or road burn from such an accident. This is when the skin slides against the roadway, leading to either superficial or more deep wounds depending on the length of content with the roadway. On the other end of the spectrum, you have things like broken bones that can be suffered as a result of a particularly bad motorcycle accident, possibly resulting in infection of the wound when contaminants and debris get into it.

You can also suffer things such as contusions which are basically deep bruises that occur on the surface of the skin, possibly in the stomach region or on the limbs. Speaking of the limbs, you can also potentially get limbs stuck between the vehicle and the motorcycle, such as your arms or legs. When this happens, severe damage can often result.

Whatever the actual injury is, the result remains the same: A motorcycle accident has occurred and some kind of damages must be received as a result. It’s not enough to receive an apology or some other kind of attempt to smoot things over. This accident has resulted in damage to your person that has impeded you in some way, and this must be rectified.

 

What legal recourse do I have?
Before we get into what legal recourse you have, we can get into some hypothetical examples of injuries that can be sustained in a motorcycle accident on a Naperville roadway.

For instance, there have been times where motorcyclists have been struck on the highway and have skidded along the roadway after striking the guardrail, only to lose their life after succumbing to their injuries.

Or perhaps you have a fellow passenger riding with you. There have been instances of fathers riding with their daughters only to be involved in a serious accident. In one instance, the daughter was pronounced dead on the scene with the father suffering non life-threatening injuries. Imagine the heartbreak and misery that no doubt resulted from this devastating loss. It’s these exact cases that warrant a call to a law firm to get compensation for the loss.

In terms of legal recourses that you have for one of these cases, you have plenty. You have the right to compensation for an accident that results in some kind of bodily harm and/or property damage. It’s this second point that’s also important. Usually, (and rightfully so) the first consideration is on the pain and suffering of the person who suffered the accident. This is normal and natural. What you also need to consider is the damage to your motorcycle that no doubt resulted after the accident happened.

The damage to your motorcycle need not be significant for you to seek damages related to it. So long as there is some sort of damage to the bike, that is cause enough for you to seek legal damages as a result of it. You should be reaching out and getting legal damages for as many things as possible during the course of your case, and the physical damage done to your bike is no exception.

So as you can see, there is plenty of legal recourse that you have during the course of your case.

 

What kind of compensation can I expect?
The short and pretty conclusive answer is that you can expect compensation to be commensurate with the level of damage that you suffered as a result of the accident. Even if you suffered minor injuries, though, it still pays to reach out to our law firm and get the compensation that you deserve. If you suffered something like a traumatic brain injury, you can be sure to expect something a little more extreme in the case of the compensation that you might receive. So in effect, the level of compensation you receive will be dependent on the extent of your injuries, but it never hurts to reach out to one of our attorneys and find out.
