Macon County Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Attorneys for Motorcyclist Injuries in Decatur, Peoria, and Central Illinois

While riding a motorcycle can offer fun and freedom, it also comes with risks. All motorcyclists are aware that a collision can be very dangerous, even when they are wearing the right safety gear. Cyclists throughout central Illinois face a wide variety of dangers due to the different types of roads, which can range from busy city streets to small-town intersections, interstate freeways, and remote state highways and country roads. No matter where a motorcycle accident takes place, a cyclist will want to work with a skilled personal injury attorney to figure out their best options for receiving financial compensation.

We know the difficulties that motorcyclists can face after being involved in a car accident, and we are ready to help you address these issues and ensure that you can make a recovery. Whether you will be making an insurance claim or pursuing a lawsuit against another driver, we will fight to protect your rights and make sure you are fully compensated for your losses.

Negligence in Motorcycle Accidents

Most motorcyclists take care to drive safely and protect themselves and others from harm. Unfortunately, drivers of cars and trucks may not take the same level of care, and these drivers are often responsible for collisions involving motorcycles. However, drivers are required to operate their vehicles safely and take steps to protect everyone who uses the road, and their failure to do so is considered negligence. A negligent driver may be held responsible for injuries suffered by a motorcyclist in a collision.

Because motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles, they can be harder for drivers to see, especially if a person is not paying enough attention to the road. Distracted driving is a common cause of motorcycle accidents, and it can lead a driver to strike a motorcycle when merging, changing lanes, traveling through an intersection, or in a rear-end collision. Drunk driving is another highly dangerous form of negligence that can make it difficult for a driver to avoid serious accidents.

Following a motorcycle accident, our attorneys can perform an investigation and gather the evidence needed to prove that the collision was caused by a negligent driver. This evidence may include police reports, security camera footage, witness statements, or cell phone records. By showing that someone else was responsible for your injuries, we can help you make sure you will receive the full compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Collision Injuries

Because motorcycles are so much smaller than other vehicles and do not provide protection for drivers or passengers, motorcyclists are likely to suffer serious injuries in a collision, even if they wear a helmet, padded clothing, or other protective equipment. Cyclists can suffer bodily harm due to being struck by a motor vehicle or hitting the ground or other objects. Injuries can become even more severe if a cyclist is thrown into traffic. Some of the catastrophic injuries that often occur in motorcycle accidents include:
