Motorcycle Accident FAQ

Motorcycle Accident FAQ Information Center

The Chicago motorcycle accident attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group are experienced in helping riders and their family members with personal injury claims after serious motorcycle accidents. We pursue full and fair compensation for our clients’ damages.

To learn more about the legal aspects of motorcycle accidents, please review the motorcycle accident FAQ below.

Q. What causes most motorcycle accidents?

A. “The failure of other motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the predominating cause of motorcycle accidents,” according to the Hurt Report, a respected source of motorcycle accident statistics funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The driver of the other vehicles either did not notice the motorcyclists or saw them too late.

Q. Where do most motorcycle accidents occur?

A. The Hurt Report found that intersections are the most likely place for motorcycle accidents. Other drivers often violate the motorcycle right-of-way and often violate traffic signs and controls, run stop signs or fail to yield.

Q. What types of injuries are most commonly associated with motorcycle accidents?

A. Injuries to the legs, knees, ankles and feet are among the most common injuries. Motorcycle accidents can also cause traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractures, internal injuries, burns and abrasions (road rash).

Q. What happens if the other driver is uninsured or if I was injured in a hit-and-run accident?

A. Our lawyers will pursue compensation from the uninsured or underinsured provisions of your own insurance policy.

Q. Why is it important to be represented by an experienced lawyer with trial experience?

A. There are two reasons: First, insurance company lawyers are more likely to offer higher settlements to trial attorneys in order to avoid the costs and risks associated with a trial. Second, juries are often prejudiced against motorcycle riders. We know how to overcome these misconceptions about bikers.
