Motorcycle Accidents Causing Serious Injuries in Illinois

Accidents involving motorbikes are far too frequent in the state of Illinois, especially in densely populated cities like Chicago. In consequence, these accidents commonly result in severe injuries or fatalities. The most recent figures compiled by the Illinois Department of Transportation suggest that around eighty percent of motorcycle accidents result in severe injuries.

More than thirty percent of wounded motorcyclists get incapacitating injuries that require several months or even years to heal. Sadly, motorcyclists frequently perish as a result of injuries sustained in collisions such as this. Motorcycles have far less preventative and defensive safety features than passenger vehicles, making riders more vulnerable to dangers on the road.

When these people are killed in an accident that was not their fault, their devastated family members are forced to endure immense mental anguish as well as substantial financial consequences. If you or a loved one were injured or a family member was murdered in a motorcycle accident caused by another party’s negligence, you may have legal recourse moving forward. When a loved one is killed in a preventable accident in Chicago, contact an attorney for injuries suffered in accidents immediately.

At the D&W Law Group, we are firm believers that bereaved families should never be forced to pursue justice and adequate recompense on their own. In Illinois, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years after the date of death; thus, it is crucial that family members and other representatives contact an attorney as quickly as possible following a tragic event.

When you contact our seasoned legal team, we will organize your case’s specifics and ensure that your claim is filed on time. If a family member died in an accident caused by another party’s negligence, our legal team would do all possible to ensure that you obtain the maximum amount of financial compensation to which you are entitled. In addition, we work with experienced attorneys to construct a convincing case and guarantee that those responsible for the situation are held accountable.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
