Motor Vehicle Accidents
Illinois Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
When we interview auto drivers who were involved in motorcycle accidents, they usually say, “But I didn’t see him.” Drivers are required to keep a lookout for all vehicles on the road, including motorcycles. A driver who fails to take the care needed to see a motorcycle means that he or she may have been negligent. In such cases, the motorcycle rider may be able to obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, ongoing care and other costs associated with the accident.
Our Motorcycle Accident Clients
At the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, law firm of Frederick & Hagle, we have helped thousands of clients since our founding in 1975. Our clients include riders of all types of motorcycles, including Harley-Davidson, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Triumph and many other brands.
Our clients have suffered permanent and disabling injuries, including brain injury, multiple fractures, disfigurement, serious back injuries, broken limbs and multiple injuries. We have also represented the families of those who lost loved ones in motorcycle accidents that resulted in a wrongful death. Whether your injury was severe or you were able to make a full recovery, we can help.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Our clients come to us after suffering injury in accidents caused by negligent or drunk drivers who were distracted by their cell phones, or did not adequately check before changing lanes or making turns. Others have been injured because of cars that followed a motorcycle too closely or failed to stop at a traffic light or stop sign.
How Our Attorneys Can Help
We employ experienced accident reconstruction experts to learn what happened. These professionals interview witnesses, examine and photograph the scene, and inspect damage to the motorcycle. It is important to call an attorney as soon as possible after an accident so that evidence can be preserved.
