Dedicated Chicago Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Make All the Difference

Defending the rights of motorcyclists to share the road

Motorcyclists face several serious issues that other motorists do not face when they are involved in traffic accidents. For one thing, a motorcycle offers its rider far less physical protection than a passenger car, so motorcyclists are far more likely to suffer serious injuries from an accident. Secondly, motorcyclists who try to recoup damages for their injuries through a personal injury lawsuit often face the misconception that they are reckless speed demons, responsible for their own accident. In fact, most motorcyclists are responsible drivers who obey the rules of the road.

If you or a loved one requires the services of a motorcycle accident attorney in Chicago, contact The Law Offices of Newman, Boyer & Statham, Ltd. today. Our attorneys are committed to pursuing the maximum compensation for motorcyclists injured by the negligent acts of others.

Motorcycle accident lawyers in Chicago understand what you are up against

An experienced Chicago motorcycle accident lawyer understands that motorbike crashes carry an increased risk of fatality and injury to victims compared with those injured in a car accident. Studies have shown that three out of every four motorcycle accidents involve a crash with another vehicle, usually a passenger car. The difference in size between motorcycles and cars, plus the lack of safety features on a motorcycle, increase the chance of serious injury to the motorcyclist such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocations
  • Road rash

In the past 10 years, more than 70,000 people have suffered from serious injuries in motorcycle accidents in the United States. But in the vast majority of motorbike crash cases, the motorcycle rider is not found to be liable for the accident.
