In the vast majority of motorcycle accident cases, you can almost predict the negligent driver’s excuse: “I never saw the motorcycle coming.” It’s easy to understand. The driver of a car has been trained to look for other cars, not motorcycles. This is especially true in states like Illinois where motorcycles are not on the road all year long.
Unfortunately, not seeing a motorcycle does not relieve the driver of the responsibility to handle his or her vehicle in a manner that ensures the safety of everyone else on the road. Motorcycles have all of the same rights as cars do, and they should be treated with the same respect.
