Motorcycle Accident Attorneys - Orzoff Law Offices
Northbrook, Illinois, Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

On busy Chicago highways and city streets, motorcycle accidents are common and usually lead to the biker suffering serious injuries and/or death. It is usually the result of negligence on the part of a car or truck driver who wasn’t paying attention to the traffic around them and violated the right of way of a motorcycle, including situations where:

  • Oncoming cars making an abrupt left hand turn in front of a motorcycle
  • A car or truck swerving into the motorcyclist’s lane because they didn’t check their blind spot
  • Not giving enough stopping room and rear-ending the motorcyclist at a stop light

These are all examples of common motorcycle accidents on Illinois roadways. In each of these cases, the car or truck driver can be held financially responsible for the injuries he or she caused.

Fair Compensation for Serious Injuries

Motorcyclists suffer some of the most serious injuries due to speed and lack of protection.

  • Knee injuries are common because the knee is the most exposed part of the body. We frequently see knee fractures and road rashes.
  • It’s not uncommon for a biker to fly over the handlebars, in which case traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are likely.
  • If the biker is caught under the motorcycle as it slides on the ground, leg fractures are common, as well as road burns and heat burns.

Families sometimes think that they cannot seek compensation for injuries because the biker wasn’t wearing protective gear or a helmet. That is not the case. If the other driver’s negligence caused the crash, your loved one will likely be eligible for compensation from the insurance company.

We thoroughly investigate every case to prove both fault and the extent and cost of injuries. We will not let our clients get less than they deserve: see our client success stories.
