Danville Motorcycle Accidents Lawyers

Any experienced motorcyclist can tell you that some car and truck operators fail to treat motorcycle riders with respect. Those operators, along with road engineers, construction workers, and even pedestrians, seem to have adopted the incorrect belief that motorcycles do not belong on the road, placing an unfair burden on motorcyclists to be extra wary and cautious. Unfortunately, even if you are the most careful driver in the world, you cannot avoid an accident if a car swerves into your lane or if a road crew fails to mark their construction area properly. These accidents can be incredibly dangerous, leading to devastating injury and even death.

The Illinois Department of Transportation reports that 15.8 percent of all fatal crashes in the state during 2015 involved motorcycles. Motorcyclists often suffer greater injury than car or truck drivers because a motorcycle cannot protect the operator in the same way a car can. A collision can easily result in broken bones, a damaged spine, severe lacerations, muscle damage, or a fractured skull. Motorcyclists do not have some of the safety features that car drivers enjoy, so they are at a greater risk of injury. Unfortunately, many people fail to consider the vulnerability of motorcyclists by driving their cars carelessly, ignoring the right of way, or even failing to maintain a road properly.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The bottom line is that motorcyclists have the same legal rights as other vehicle operators. They deserve to be treated with the same amount of care that car and truck drivers use around each other. Furthermore, they deserve a safe, well-marked road on which to drive along with properly designed and manufactured vehicles. The motorcycle accident lawyers at Spiros Law, P.C. know that many accidents involving motorcycles are actually caused by negligent drivers, defective products, and road dangers. Our legal team is committed to recovering damages for motorcyclists who have suffered because of the reckless errors of others.

Too many motorcyclists suffer from crash-related injuries each year due to a cause beyond their control. Some examples of reckless or negligent behavior that can lead to a crash are:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Failing to properly maintain a road
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Making mistakes when designing or manufacturing motorcycles
  • Breaking road safety laws

Motorcyclists, like other drivers, should rest assured knowing pedestrians, other vehicle operators, automotive engineers, and construction workers will follow the law. Unfortunately, negligence and reckless behavior put cyclists in danger every day.

When we had questions or concerns, we felt comfortable emailing or calling into the office to speak with her, and of course, she gave us honest, truthful answers that reassured us. We've never been down this road before, but having an attorney like Miranda has definitely helped in seeking the justice we feel is deserved."
