Best Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Chicago

While motorcycles are a great way to get around, to avoid parking hassles, and to enjoy the open road, they are also a great way to get seriously injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers. When you’re on your bike, you are laid bare to the impact of an accident, and the damages you suffer can be immense. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, make the call to the best motorcycle accident lawyers in Chicago today. 

When You’re on Your Motorcycle

When you head out on your motorcycle, there’s plenty to enjoy, but it’s important to recognize that you’re far more vulnerable to the dangers of the road for all the following reasons:

  • You take up less space on the road, which makes you more difficult to see and which makes it far easier for you to get lost in another driver’s blind spots.
  • Your smaller size makes it more difficult for others on the road to gauge your distance from them and your speed (which can be especially dangerous in intersections). 
  • You’re more susceptible to poorly maintained roads and to the dangerous effects of bad weather when you’re on your bike.
  • Because you ride on only two wheels, your balance is less stable, and you’re more vulnerable to losing contact with the road. 
  • You don’t have a protective shell to help shield you from the direct impact of an accident when you ride.
  • Your smaller size and weight mean that you require less stopping distance, which leaves you vulnerable to being rear-ended by motorists who fail to appropriately distance themselves from your bike. 

Although you are obviously more vulnerable to dangerous accidents and serious injuries when you’re on your motorcycle, this doesn’t alter the fact that motorists owe you the same duty of care that they owe everyone else, which includes watching out for you on the road and accommodating your safe travel. 

Dangerous Drivers

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by the negligence of other drivers on the road, which can take many different forms, including:

  • Impairment – Impaired drivers are far less likely to see motorcycles on the road, which can lead directly to dangerous motorcycle accidents.  
  • Distraction – Distracted drivers are less likely to pay attention to what’s going on around them, which puts motorcyclists in serious danger.
  • Exhaustion – When a driver is drowsy, he or she can experience impairments that rival those of drunk drivers, and motorcyclists can pay the dangerous price. 
  • Excess Speed – Excess speed allows a driver less time to react safely and increases the likelihood that an accident will be deadly.
