Fatalities Reported in Illinois Motorcycle Accidents
In Illinois, particularly in densely populated metropolitan areas such as Chicago, significant injuries or deaths resulting from motorcycle accidents are all too prevalent. According to current statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation, approximately eighty percent of motorcycle collisions result in severe injuries.
More than thirty percent of motorcyclists who are injured get incapacitating injuries that need months or even years to heal. Sadly, motorcyclists often pass away from the injuries they incur in these collisions. Riders are especially vulnerable on the road since motorbikes provide far less in terms of safety measures and prevention than passenger cars.
When these victims are murdered in an accident that was not their fault, their bereaved family members are forced to deal with tremendous mental pain and significant financial repercussions.
