Chicago Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

If you ride, Chicago has a lot to offer. Not only are there plenty of roadways to explore, but getting around on your bike can also be a real convenience when it comes down to fighting heavy city traffic and bypassing serious parking obstacles. Motorcycle accidents, however, are some of the most frightening and most dangerous accidents out there. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, don’t delay reaching out to an experienced Chicago motorcycle accident lawyer. 

When Riding Your Motorcycle

When you head out on your motorcycle, there are several factors that leave you that much more vulnerable to the risks of the road, including:

  • Because you take up far less room on the road, you’re more difficult for other drivers to see and it is far easier for you to get lost in their blind spots (besides the fact that far too many drivers are simply not on the lookout for bikers in their midst).
  • When you ride, you lack the protective shell that the vehicles all around you have. In fact, you have nothing but your helmet and gear to shield you, leaving you exceptionally vulnerable to the immense impact of an accident – and even a relatively minor accident can prove life-threatening.
  • Because your bike has only two wheels, you maintain less traction with the ground, leaving you more vulnerable to the dangers associated with bad road conditions.
  • Because of the small size and weight of your bike, you can come to shorter stops than the vehicles all around you can, and when a driver fails to take this fact into consideration and leaves too little distance between his or her vehicle and your forward bike, it increases the risk that you will be rear-ended if a sudden stop is required. 

Motorists are responsible for driving safely in relation to the other vehicles all around them, and this includes motorcycles like yours. 

Dangerous Forms of Driver Negligence

When you ride, the various forms of driver negligence out there become that much more dangerous to you, including:

  • Motorists who fail to look back and carefully check their safety mirrors before changing or leaving their lanes
  • Motorists who fail to drive in accordance with the rules of the road
  • Drunk drivers
  • Drowsy drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Aggressive drivers 

When you are on your bike, making safety your top priority (and assuming that other drivers don’t see you in the first place) is the best way to help ensure that you arrive at your destination safe and sound – every time.
