Recent motorcycle crash claims the life of a motorcyclist

As the warmer months arrive in Illinois, more and more residents will use motorcycles as a source of transportation. Motorcycles are economical and are a fun and enjoyable way to get around. However, traveling by motorcycle can also be incredibly dangerous, especially on crowded city streets. Since motorcycles have a smaller profile, they can sometimes be difficult for other drivers to see. A recent tragic motorcycle crash in Chicago claimed the life of a motorcyclist.

Drunk driving-related accidents a real issue in Illinois

Every year, numerous Illinois residents suffer injuries or lose their lives in accidents caused by impaired drivers. The losses suffered by surviving victims, their families and the families of those who fail to survive can be significant. Thankfully, following drunk driving-related accidents, victims and/or their loved ones may be entitled to seek compensation through legal means.

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

There is a certain population of motorists in Illinois and elsewhere who seem to be forgotten by other drivers. Motorcyclists are often found out and about, yet they seem invisible to most people with whom they share the road. As May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, it seems an appropriate time to go over a few stats, as well as some suggestions to help keep these vulnerable motorists safe.

Injured in a no-contact motorcycle accident?

Every day, drivers in Illinois fail to see or yield the right of way to motorcyclists. As a result, motorcyclists are forced to react quickly in order to avoid collisions. Unfortunately, sometimes, in their effort to do this, they crash and suffer injuries, all without ever coming in contact with other vehicles. If you were injured in a no-contact motorcycle accident, you might feel there is no way to recover your losses, but that may not be the case.
