We applaud the many Illinois motorcycle riders who practice safety on the road, but common sense will tell you this is sometimes not enough to avoid a motorcycle accident. Unfortunately, other motor vehicle operators often cause an accident, even when they are also practicing safety and common sense.
The sad truth is motorcycle operators are 26 times more likely to perish in a traffic accident than those who drive cars. While it is true that many times the fault lies with others, it's still important to protect yourself on the road by keeping safety foremost in your mind. We are pleased to provide an in-depth motorcycle safety page on our website featuring safety information such as:
-- How to ride your motorcycle defensively-- Using the right safety accessories-- Avoiding distractions while operating a motorcycle-- Making yourself visible-- How to keep your passengers safe and secure
Our motorcycle safety center also provides in-site links to informative pages about the various injuries one can suffer through a motorcycle accident. We hope the information will inspire you and all other motorcycle operators to use safety on the road. The articles featured in our safety center offer details on the following topics and many others:
-- Passenger injuries-- Defective motorcycle products-- Spinal injuries-- Brain injuries
Our firm's goal is and always has been to provide the public with premium legal service, including simple advice about what to expect after experiencing an accident. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, we invite you to browse our safety center and find out how to take a proactive approach toward recovering any out-of-pocket expenses as well as your peace of mind.
