We extend our heartfelt sympathies and best wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded victim.

Illinois Motorcycle Crashes & Serious Injuries

Motorcycle accidents occur far too frequently in the state of Illinois, especially in densely populated areas like Chicago. Consequently, victims of these occurrences frequently sustain life-threatening injuries. More than 80% of motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries, according to the most recent data compiled by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Three out of ten motorcyclists who are hurt get serious injuries from which they won’t be able to ride again for months or perhaps years. Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents such as these can prove fatal for the rider. Motorcycle riders are far more vulnerable to road hazards than vehicle drivers because motorcycles lack many of the preventative and defensive safety features found in cars.

When these people are killed in a tragic event that was not their fault, their loved ones bear the emotional and financial burden of their loss. If you or a loved one were wounded in a motorcycle accident that was someone else’s fault, you might be able to take legal action against the responsible person. If a family member is murdered in a preventable Chicago accident, you should speak with an attorney about your legal options as soon as possible.

Our firm, D&W Law, is firm in its belief that no grieving family should have to go it alone in its pursuit of justice and appropriate compensation following a loved one’s death. In Illinois, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years of the decedent’s date of death, making it critical for survivors to retain legal counsel as soon as possible after a tragedy.

Contact our seasoned legal team, and we will promptly gather the necessary information and file your claim on your behalf. If a member of your family were to be murdered in an accident that was the fault of another, our legal team would do everything in its power to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of financial compensation to which you are entitled. Also, we work with seasoned attorneys to create a solid case and make sure the guilty parties face the consequences.

  • "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.
