Car and truck drivers should be aware of motorcyclists during every season. However, the sad truth is that car and truck drivers are often oblivious to motorcyclists and do not take appropriate precautions to avoid serious and potentially fatal accidents.
You can’t make other drivers see you, you can’t prevent other drivers from being distracted, and you can’t prevent all Illinois motorcycle accidents. Part of the responsibility for avoiding serious crashes rests with other drivers.
Accordingly, it is important to know what to do if you are injured in an Illinois motorcycle crash. After you get medical help, it is important to think about your legal rights and potential recovery. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer may be able to help you get damages for your past, current and future:
- Medical expenses (including doctors’ appointments, hospitalizations, surgeries, medications and other expenses)
- Rehabilitation costs (such as physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy).
- Lost income.
- Out-of-pocket costs.
- Physical pain and emotional suffering.
