Special Considerations of Motorcycle Accidents
The majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by collisions with cars and other vehicles. Motorcycles often get lost in a driver’s blind spot, which can result in a collision or being cut off by the car and having to lay the bike down. Accidents at intersections are also very common. Blown tires and bike defects can cause injuries, as well.
The nature of motorcycle accidents often lead to injuries involving leg fractures and amputations. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is also very common, especially if the rider was not wearing a helmet. These types of catastrophic injuries result in disability, disfigurement and sometimes, wrongful death.
To cover the cost of medical bills, long-term care and pain management, lost income and monthly expenses, you will need adequate compensation from the insurance company. We know how to make insurance companies pay out the amount that accident victims need. Grant Dixon is an experienced, aggressive litigator who is not afraid to stand up for your rights in court. He is passionate about recovering the financial compensation his clients need to pay medical bills and move forward with their lives.
Illinois motorcycle crashes take the lives of people every year in Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. Many more bikers were injured. Dixon Law Office understands how devastating a motorcycle accident can be and we are committed to helping those who have been hurt recover the fair damages they deserve. Our motorcycle accident lawyer believes that recovering damages starts with understanding the motorcycle accident recovery process just as well as the insurance companies do.

If I Had To Lay My Bike Down Do I Have A Claim?
In this case laying the bike down because someone else turned in front of you still means you have a claim. Even if you didn’t make contact with that other vehicle because you have to take evasive action they call it – laying that bike down.
If I Was Not Wearing A Helmet While Riding A Motorcycle Can I Still File A Claim?
Illinois law does not require that people riding a motorcycle must wear a helmet. Therefore not wearing a helmet is not something that will prevent you from filing a claim.
