Illinois Motorcycle Crashes & Serious Injuries

Accidents involving motorcycles are much too common in Illinois, particularly in heavily populated places such as Chicago. As a result, these incidents often cause serious injuries or deaths. According to the most current data gathered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, over 80% of motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries.

More than thirty percent of injured motorcyclists get incapacitating injuries that need months or even years to recover from. Sadly, many motorcyclists die as a consequence of injuries incurred in crashes such as this. Motorcycles have much fewer preventive and defensive safety systems than passenger cars, rendering those riders exceedingly more susceptible to road hazards.

When these individuals are murdered in an accident that was not their fault, their bereft family members are forced to suffer extreme emotional pain as well as considerable financial repercussions. You may have recourse if you or a loved one were hurt in a motorcycle accident caused by another party’s negligence or if a family member was killed. Immediately contact an attorney for injuries sustained in accidents when a loved one is killed in an avoidable accident in Chicago.

At the D&W Law Group, we are certain that bereaved families should never be forced to seek justice and fair compensation on their own. In Illinois, a wrongful death claim must be brought within two years after the date of death; thus, it is imperative that family members and other representatives contact an attorney immediately following a fatal incident.

  • "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.
