Recovering Compensation in a Motorcycle Collision

Posted on in Motorcycle Accidents

IL crash lawyerOn June 11th, a Palatine man was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident in Elgin. Despite the fact that the man was wearing a helmet, the injuries suffered in the collision ultimately proved fatal. Every year, thousands of people are fatally injured in motorcycle accidents throughout the United States.

According to statistics compiled by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), just under 5,000 people were fatally injured in motorcycle accidents, throughout 2017. Due to the limited protection that motorcycles provide their riders, the injuries suffered can be increasingly life-threatening. Motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries in an accident, than standard motor vehicle passengers. If you or a loved one are injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to significant injury compensation.

Seeking Injury Compensation

In the aftermath of a significant injury, it is entirely common to feel helpless. For motorcyclists injuries suffered can range from spinal cord injuries to brain trauma. These types of serious injuries can leave a person with astronomical medical expenses and an inability to return to work for some time. Because of the severity of many motorcycle injuries, it is incredibly important to secure injury compensation in the aftermath of an injury.

In order to secure the injury compensation you deserve, you and your attorney must prove that the other party was predominantly at fault for the collision and subsequent injuries suffered. Securing injury compensation as a motorcyclist can be somewhat difficult. The attorney of the other party involved will likely attempt to argue that you were negligent in some manner, leading to the collision. Due to the negative stigmas associated with motorcyclists, some judges will already assume that you were operating the vehicle negligently. This does not mean that securing compensation is not possible.

Attorney Daniel Flaherty has won dozens of motorcycle injury cases, including instances in which the other driver was texting while driving, failed to yield or stop, or was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Do not let the negative stigma attached to motorcycling keep you from pursuing the injury compensation you deserve, a quality attorney will devise a strategy that will prove the other party was primarily responsible for the accident, and negligent in some manner.
