Personal Injury

Motorcycle Accidents

Unlike cars and trucks, motorcycles are not encapsulated by steel and glass. Injuries to motorcycle riders are intensified due to that lack of protection. Over 70% of motorcycle crashes in Illinois resulted in personal injury. Comparatively, only 30% of car crashes in Illinois resulted in personal injury.

Societal bias towards motorcycles already place injured motorcyclists at a disadvantage. We often hear the insurance companies attempt to place blame on the motorcyclist for “excessive speed, weaving in and out of traffic, or general reckless behavior.” Bias is extremely unfortunate and unfair. Motorcyclists understand the dangers of riding and even take a class to improve driver safety. Unfortunately, that cannot protect them from the negligent and careless driving of others. It is important to hire an experienced Edwardsville motorcycle lawyer to insist on a proper investigation as quickly as possible. With the help of experts, our experienced team at Bragee Law will dive into the evidence to make certain the blame is placed on the negligent driver and not our client. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, call Bragee Law to fight for you.
