As discussed on the “‘Head-On Collisions’ Involving Motorcycles” page, there are many reasons as to why such crashes occur. Head-on crashes that have occurred in Illinois have resulted in very serious accident injuries to the motorcycle rider (and if applicable, passenger.) As seen in the Illinois motorcycle accidents involving head-on crashes mentioned on that page, these crashes, like the Carterville accident discussed above, frequently result in fatal injuries to the motorcyclist and, if applicable, passenger.
Often, if the motorcyclist is killed in the accident, and the accident is the fault of another person or party, relevant parties can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
If the injuries are non-fatal in nature, there can be substantial medical bills and other financial hardships, such as lost income, that occur due to the injuries occurring during the crash. Often, injured motorcyclists and motorcycle passengers will seek to file a personal injury lawsuit to get compensated for the injuries and other harm that has occurred.
