Chicago, IL motorcycle crash injury attorneyAs warmer weather arrives in Illinois during the spring and summer, many motorcyclists are looking to hit the road. After spending most of the last year indoors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cyclists will be glad to be back on the open road. However, many other drivers will also be spending more time on the road, which may increase the likelihood of dangerous motorcycle accidents. Cyclists who are injured in a collision will want to understand who was at fault and determine how they can pursue financial compensation for their injuries and damages.

Driver Negligence Leading to Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are much more likely to be injured in a collision than people in passenger vehicles. While cars and trucks include seat belts, airbags, and other safety systems, motorcycles do not offer this type of protection, and a cyclist can suffer serious bodily harm or wrongful death in an impact with another vehicle. Most of the time, motorcycle accidents are caused by driver negligence, and this negligence may include:

  • Speeding - People who drive above the speed limit are more likely to lose control of their vehicle or be unable to stop in time to avoid colliding with a motorcycle. Drivers who speed may also run red or yellow lights or stop signs, causing them to strike a motorcyclist who is traveling through the intersection legally.
