Your financial options after an Illinois motorcycle accident

Did you know that roughly 66 percent -- or two thirds -- of the motorcycle accidents that happen in Illinois are not caused by the driver of the motorcycle? Instead, they are caused by other drivers who do not give the motorcycle the right of way when they should. This can happen in many different ways, including the following:

- A driver merging into the lane where you are riding your motorcycle without seeing you.- A driver turning left across your lane, in front of you, without enough time to make it all the way through the lane.- A driver cutting you off while pulling out of a driveway or a parking lot.- A driver failing to give you the right of way, either at a two-way stop or even at a four-way stop.- A driver not stopping quickly enough and running to the back of your bike while you are stopped at a light.

Drivers, especially those in large vehicle with blind spots, often do not see motorcycles because they are so small. As the statistics show, this leads to more accidents than anything else.

Unfortunately, many motorcycle riders think that the only way for them to get financial assistance is by filing an insurance claim. Depending on the cause of the accident, this may not be the case. These drivers may actually have a right to seek financial compensation for things like pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent injuries or medical bills.
