Wheaton Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

You’re driving along, having a good time. Your motorcycle is purring, you’re having a good time, and you’re exploring. The streets of Wheaton, IL offer a lot to you, and you take advantage every step of the way. Before you know it, though, you’ve been the victim of a motorcycle accident at no fault of your own. You’ve been struck hard, and now you’re injured. Just like that, your dreams seem crushed. Your motorcycle is a wreck, and so are you. You don’t know where to even begin with this, it all seems so overwhelming to deal with. You’re not even beginning to think of hiring a lawyer, but you know that that’s what you’ll need to do in the end. You’ll need a law firm that cares about you and your specific injury. You’ll need a firm that cares about you and has the know-how to get you the compensation that you deserve. In short, you need us.

In this post, we’re going to look at what this type of injury is, what legal recourse you can expect to receive in your particular case, and what kind of compensation you can expect to receive at the conclusion of your case.

What is this injury?

A motorcycle accident injury in Wheaton, IL involves some kind of damage that has been done to your body, and very often to your motorcycle too. The first most common type of motorcycle accident injury is abrasions or lacerations. These can be as simple as minor surface level wounds and can go all the way down to road rash, which is when the skin makes contact and scrapes against the roadway, burning off several layers of the skin and leading to severe pain. As you can imagine, this is a particularly painful injury to have to suffer.

Another injury that you can suffer in the course of a motorcycle accident injury in Wheaton, IL is broken bones. This can happen when a limb, such as a leg or an arm, is pinned between the car that struck you and the motorcycle you were driving. This can also happen if you were to strike a guardrail or some other type of surface, such as a pole or other type of thing. Let’s say you were struck from behind. You might naturally put your arms out when flying from your motorcycle to break your fall. Along with suffering from abrasions or lacerations on your hands, you likely would suffer broken bones in one or both of your arms.

You can also suffer from sprains or fractures. Sprains can be severe, to the point where you do serious damage to the ligaments and other structures inside the body, leading to severe internal damage. Fractures, too, can be severe and end with severe damage to your body. Simply from suffering a fall or a drag across the roadway, you can suffer from a sprain or a fracture that will put you out of commission for quite some time.

The final and most severe of the injuries that you can suffer when in a motorcycle accident in Wheaton, IL is severe traumatic brain injury. This is very common in the case of motorcycle riders, even if they are wearing a helmet. Luckily, though, helmets do provide significant protection against things like traumatic brain injury, so it’s advised that you always ride with your helmet on. The tricky thing about traumatic brain injury is that it can often not present itself for weeks after the initial accident. As a result, many people might not catch the symptoms of traumatic brain injury until it’s too late.

What is my legal recourse in this case?

Luckily, you have significant legal recourse in the case of motorcycle accidents in Wheaton, IL. You can find the right lawyer for you and get the legal help that you need. In order to do that, you’re going to need to find the right law firm for you that will work on your behalf to get you the compensation that you need and you deserve. It needs to be a law firm that’s tough and focused on the facts to get you the proper compensation for your case. It needs to be us.

The legal recourse you have will be dependent on the severity of the particular case. For instance, a case involving simple road rash will not have the same urgency as a case involving traumatic brain injury. That isn’t to say that one beats another in terms of favorability, but it’s simply the nature of how things work in the legal system. Whatever the case may be, you want to know that the lawyer you’ve chosen can accurately represent you and get you the help that you need. That’s a service that we can provide.

What kind of compensation can I receive here?

The short answer is that you can expect compensation in line with the kind of injury that was suffered. Unfortunately, you can’t expect to receive as much compensation from an abrasion case as you can from a traumatic brain injury case. This isn’t to say that an abrasion case shouldn’t be pursued, however. Any motorcycle accident injury case should be pursued in line with the severity of the injury.

Something that often isn’t considered is the actual damage that was sustained to the motorcycle itself. Of course, you’ll want to pursue monetary compensation for your injuries first and foremost, but you can also pursue monetary compensation for damage that was done to your motorcycle as well. Many motorcyclists don’t take this into consideration when looking at damages and so can miss out on some substantial monetary compensation in the long run. So, the amount of compensation you can expect to receive is commensurate with your level of injury, but also with the level of damage to your motorcycle. If your bike is totaled, you can be sure that your compensation will be higher.

You’re driving along, having a good time. Your motorcycle is purring, you’re having a good time, and you’re exploring. The streets of Wheaton, IL offer a lot to you, and you take advantage every step of the way. Before you know it, though, you’ve been the victim of a motorcycle accident at no fault of your own. You’ve been struck hard, and now you’re injured. Just like that, your dreams seem crushed. Your motorcycle is a wreck, and so are you. You don’t know where to even begin with this, it all seems so overwhelming to deal with. You’re not even beginning to think of hiring a lawyer, but you know that that’s what you’ll need to do in the end. You’ll need a law firm that cares about you and your specific injury. You’ll need a firm that cares about you and has the know-how to get you the compensation that you deserve. In short, you need us.
