Des Plaines, IL – Man Dead, Several Hurt in Motorcycle Collision at Golf & Rand Rds

Des Plaines, IL - Man Dead, Several Hurt in Motorcycle Collision at Golf & Rand Rds

Des Plaines, IL (May 14, 2023) – Officials say a man was killed, and several others were injured in a serious motorcycle accident on Saturday night in Des Plaines.

Just before 9:45 p.m., police in Des Plaines were made aware of a collision between a sedan and a motorcycle near the corner of Golf Road and Rand Road. While emergency personnel attended to the victims, traffic at that junction was closed temporarily.

According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, a male in his 60s was declared deceased at the scene. However, the total number of casualties and the status of those hurt were not immediately known.

Des Plaines police are looking for anybody who saw the collision or has more information. In the interim, an investigation remains active and ongoing.

Our deepest condolences go out to the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts are with the injured victims in hopes of their complete recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents in Illinois

Accidents involving motorcycles are far too common in Illinois, particularly in densely populated cities such as Chicago. As a result, these accidents frequently cause severe injuries or fatalities. According to the most recent data compiled by the Illinois Department of Transportation, approximately 80% of motorcycle incidents result in severe injuries.

More than thirty percent of injured motorcyclists sustain incapacitating injuries that require months or even years to recover from. Sadly, many motorcyclists die as a consequence of injuries sustained in collisions such as this. Motorcycles have significantly fewer preventive and defensive safety features than passenger vehicles, making riders more susceptible to road hazards.

When these individuals are killed in an accident that was not their fault, their bereft family members are forced to endure extreme mental distress as well as substantial financial repercussions. Thankfully, if you or a loved one were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another party’s negligence or if a family member was killed, you might have recourse in the future. Immediately contact an attorney for injuries suffered in accidents when a loved one is killed in a preventable accident in Chicago.

At the D&W Law Group, we are adamant that bereaved families should never be required to pursue justice and fair compensation on their own.

  • "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.
