Motorcycle accidents in Illinois happen in all settings and within all communities. While the Illinois Department of Transportation reports that most motorcycle accidents occur in urban areas, rural areas are not too much safer in regards to motorcycle safety. If you travel on your motorcycle for leisure or to travel to work, you are at risk of being involved in an accident that could leave you with minor or severe injuries.
The team at O’Brien Law understands the intricacies of litigating personal injury claims after a motorcycle accident. Our lead attorney, Daniel O’Brien, has worked with people who have been injured in motorcycle accidents. He is well-versed in knowing how to get the compensation that you deserve after your accident.
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, even if your injuries were minor, you are entitled to have an attorney advocating for you throughout the process. Severe injuries require medical intervention and you may be recovering for months; don’t attempt to handle your own insurance claims or litigation alone. You should save your energy for healing your body. Our team will take the lead in advocating for you and your best possible outcome, taking the stress off you so that you can focus on a healthy and quick recovery.
If you have experienced only minor injuries that persist, you should still contact our office. We have seen clients with minor injuries that end up causing long term medical concerns or complications; without the proper documentation, you could end up paying for a lifetime of medical treatments when you could have been adequately compensated by your insurance company or the insurance company of the driver at fault. Allow our legal team to advocate on your behalf to assure you are protected moving forward.
Don’t get on your motorcycle without an emergency plan that includes calling our team in case of an accident. Make sure that you have purchased enough insurance coverage to protect you in case you suffer a catastrophic injury. This is far more likely to occur with motorcycles than vehicles. Give us a call to set up a consultation and talk about your situation so that we can work towards resolving your case, or being a part of your emergency plan.
