While the details regarding the reasons for the crash mentioned above remain under investigation, motorists “not seeing” motorcyclists remain a serious traffic safety problem. There are many reasons why motorcycle accidents occur, as further discussed on the “Reasons For Illinois Motorcycle Accident Injuries And Fatalities” page. One of the most common reasons for crashes and collisions remains this motorists “not seeing” bikes. When motorists don’t notice a traveling rider, a number of serious accident types can occur.
For those motorcyclists who have been injured or killed due to the negligence of a motorist or other road user, such as a truck driver, a lawsuit is often filed. Getting the highest accident compensation is a key goal, as many motorcycle accidents generate significant medical bills and other financial hardships. While there are many determinants of how much compensation an accident lawsuit will generate, a key factor is choosing lawyers who have proven they get high levels of injury compensation.
