Attorneys Representing Injured Motorcyclists Throughout the Chicagoland Area

All motor vehicles have the right to share the road. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are often injured because the drivers of larger vehicles fail to recognize this right or do not take care to notice motorcycles around them. In these cases, negligent drivers should be held responsible for the damages that they cause to motorcycle drivers and passengers.

The attorneys of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman, LLC understand the devastating injuries that can be inflicted in motorcycle accidents, and we are dedicated to helping victims recover the compensation that they deserve. We fight to achieve justice for those who have been harmed by others' negligence, and we work to improve public safety by ensuring that laws and regulations protect everyone who uses the road.

Causes of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Due to the small size of motorcycles, the drivers of cars, trucks, and other vehicles often fail to see them, and many drivers choose to operate their vehicles in a manner that endangers motorcyclists, especially when merging, changing lanes, or navigating intersections. However, not recognizing other vehicles is not a valid excuse for failing to follow the rules of the road, and drivers should be held liable for the unsafe actions they take that cause injury to others.

There are many forms of driver negligence that can lead to motorcycle accidents, including:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Tailgating
  • Unsafe passing
  • Failure to yield
  • Illegal lane changes or turns

Due to the large size difference between motorcycles and other vehicles, as well as the lack of protection provided by a motorcycle, motorcyclists and their passengers are likely to be seriously injured or killed in a collision with another vehicle. Some common injuries experienced in motorcycle crashes include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries, which can occur even when a proper helmet is worn
  • Spine injuries, which can lead to paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Severe lacerations, contusions, and "road rash"
  • Injuries to the limbs, which can require amputation
  • Serious sprains and strains
  • Scarring and disfigurement
