Chicago Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Many people enjoy riding motorcycles for pleasure, and sometimes, a motorcyclist will use his or her motorcycle to commute to and from work or other places. Most of riders choose to take safety precautions when riding, such as wearing a helmet and other protective gear. However, regardless of the precautions that a motorcyclist can take, it can still be very dangerous to ride on the road with cars and trucks. Many drivers of motor vehicles do not respect the fact that a motorcyclist has the same rights to the road as they do, or fail to pay enough attention to their surroundings to avoid a potential collision with someone who is riding a motorcycle.
While motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic for both the driver of the motor vehicle and the motorcyclist, it is more often than not more serious for the biker than the driver. Head and brain injuries can occur even when the motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, and other injuries such as internal organ damage, road rash, broken bones and limb amputations can occur. Sadly, many motorcycle accidents are fatal.
