Chicago Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Protecting the legal rights of individuals injured in motorcycle accidents in and around Chicago, Illinois

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there were approximately 88,000 motorcyclists injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes during 2012, and that motorcyclists are 5 times more likely to be injured per vehicle mile traveled than people in passenger cars. When motorcyclists are involved in accidents, the injuries that they sustain can be severe and are often life-threatening. Unlike motorists in cars or trucks, motorcyclists have no protective barrier between themselves and other vehicles, objects, or the ground. As a result, when accidents occur, their bodies often come into physical contact with other objects in a way that involves tremendous force. Fortunately, motorcyclists are often able to recover significant compensation when they are injured by the negligence of other motorists.

Motorcycle accidents can cause a variety of serious injuries

Motorcycle accidents are capable of causing a wide variety of physical injuries. Some of the types of injuries that are commonly sustained by motorcycle accident victims are discussed below.

Motorcycle accidents are capable of causing a wide variety of physical injuries. Some of the types of injuries that are commonly sustained by motorcycle accident victims are discussed below.

Traumatic brain injuries – Traumatic brain injuries, often referred to as TBIs, can easily occur in a motorcycle accident, even if a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet. These injuries occur when a bump or blow to the head results in a disruption in normal brain function. While many are self-resolving, they can also result in serious and long-term problems with memory, motor function, thinking, and speech.

Road burn – Often referred to as “road rash,” these injuries occur when a motorcyclist is thrown from his or her vehicle and travels across the roadway, causing injury. The injuries associated with road burn involve the friction between the road and a motorcyclists’ body causing injury to skin and underlying tissue.

Broken bones – Broken bones, medically referred to as “fractures,” occur when a bone is subject to more force than its structure can handle, causing a break in the continuity of the bone. Broken bones can result in serious pain, disfigurement, loss of range of motion, and even significant scarring if the bone breaks the skin or if surgery is required.

Spinal cord injuries –Spinal cord injuries occur when an external force causes injury to the spinal column or spinal cord itself resulting in damage to the spinal cord. Because the spinal cord is responsible for carrying signals between the brain and the rest of the body, the result of spinal cord injuries can be extremely severe and may involve loss of feeling or movement below the site of injury.
