Motorcycle collisions with vehicles that are attempting to turn left continue to be a leading cause of motorcycle accidents. Frequently, these crashes occur because the motorist fails to see the oncoming motorcycle, and a collision occurs as the car makes a left-hand turn immediately in front of the oncoming motorcycle. Such crashes are a frequent cause of fatal Illinois motorcycle accidents. For this type of accident that is not fatal to the motorcyclist or passenger, the accident injuries are usually serious in nature as the forces involved tend to lead to various serious accident injuries.
Motorcyclists who are injured in such collisions are often in need of cash compensation for their injuries. Medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses often create a difficult financial situation for those who have been injured. In these situations injured motorcyclists often hire a motorcycle accident attorney to get injury compensation.
