Motorcycles are popular in the Chicago area for a number of reasons. However, riding a motorcycle often entails risks, many of which are presented by Chicago’s traffic situation, which is among the busiest in the country.
Many motorcycle accidents are the fault of motorists. Popular causes of motorcycle accidents stem from inattentiveness by drivers, as well as motorists who fail to see motorcycles. One common cause of motorcycle accidents is when motorists make a left-hand turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle, thereby causing a frontal impact with the motorcycle rider.
Many motorcycle accidents cause serious injury, including death. These injuries can include broken bones, bleeding, injuries to the back, spinal cord injuries/paralysis, and various brain injuries.
For those accidents that are non-fatal, there are a variety of expenses that can be incurred. These include medical bills, ongoing medical care costs, lost wages, and other expenses that can be very high. As well, the cost to repair and/or replace motorcycles can be significant.
