Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Chicago, Cicero, Oak Park, Berwyn and Nearby Areas in Illinois

 

Every accident is unique. The circumstances that come together to result in a devastating motorcycle accident are once-in-a-lifetime events, and they can't ever be precisely replicated in a different context.

For all that, however, there are many similarities across motorcycle accidents. One of those similarities is that the root cause of many of these accidents is negligence.

Some wrecks are unavoidable, yes. But in our experience, most accidents are the result of someone making an avoidable mistake that could foreseeably result in danger to everyone else on the road.

Specific Forms of Negligence

Discovering the cause of your motorcycle accident is obviously a crucial element of our job. Personal injury cases are all about liability, and liability is all about proving the facts of the case and how they contributed to the accident in question.

We will conduct a thorough, professional investigation into your accident, one designed to follow the evidence wherever it leads and find the truth. We have decades of experience doing exactly that.

In our experience, there are several common causes of motorcycle accidents, including:

  • A failure to notice a motorcycle
  • Aggressive, reckless driving and a refusal to share a lane with a motorcyclist
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to make adjustments based on bad weather
  • Defective roadway design

This is not an exhaustive list, of course, but it does provide a useful glimpse into what can go wrong for a motorcyclist. You can do everything right, follow every law, and still end up in a devastating accident.

We won't rest. We believe in providing victims with the vigorous, skilled legal representation you deserve. Justice is our priority, and in your case, that involves pursuing every cent of the compensation to which you are entitled.
