As the weather becomes cooler, fewer motorcycles may be seen traveling the roadways. However, as the seasonal transition occurs, many motorcyclists may be attempting to get in some last rides and other travel time. Therefore, other motorists should continue to be on the lookout for the less visible motorcycles. If a driver fails to see an approaching rider, a serious motorcycle accident could occur.
A recent accident in Illinois involved a car and a motorcycle and resulted in serious injuries. It was reported that the car was eastbound when the driver attempted to make a left turn. The driver presumably did not see the approaching motorcycle, and the motorcyclist collided with the side of the turning vehicle.
The driver of the car did not suffer any injuries in the collision. The motorcyclist, however, suffered serious injuries and was taken to an area hospital. At this time, no charges or citations have been filed in relation to the accident. The event is still under investigation, and the authorities working the case may be able to disclose more information as it becomes available.
The injuries that could be suffered in a motorcycle accident could require considerable medical attention and long-term rehabilitation. As a result, the motorcyclist involved in this Illinois accident could potentially accumulate significant medical expenses as he struggles to recover from his injuries. If he chooses to do so, gathering information on personal injury claims may help him decide whether filing a claim to seek compensation for medical bills and other damages could be right for the situation.
