Motorcycle Accidents: An Overview

Riding a motorcycle is something that can be exhilarating yet relaxing. Unfortunately, because it is so much smaller than the vehicles that surround it, injuries can quickly turn catastrophic. Smith LaCien LLP, has represented clients throughout Illinois. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, we can help.

Common Causes Of Accidents

Motorcycle drivers face a unique set of issues when they are on the road. For example, road hazards that are often absorbed by a car can cause you to lose control. This includes potholes, debris and uneven pavement. They are also prone to “wobble” accidents. This is when the front tire of the motorcycle is misaligned and can cause a driver to spin out at higher speeds. Another problem is inexperience. Not being confident on the road can cost you.

While you can do everything in your power to act safely, everyone is not the same. If another driver causes your accident, they can be held liable. You can receive payment for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering. We will examine all areas of your case, which includes looking over all of your medical records, the police report and gathering statements from any witnesses. Our goal is to build the strongest possible case in order to get our clients what they deserve.
