Lake County Motorcycle Crash Injury Lawyer

Attorney in Grayslake for Injured Motorcycle Riders

Libertyville Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyer

Far too often, motorcycle crashes are caused by a distinct lack of proper awareness by drivers in cars and trucks. It is not uncommon for drivers to forget to look for approaching or nearby motorcycles and to make decisions that place riders in extreme danger. Such negligence can make something as simple as changing lanes into a life-threatening situation, as the rider may not be able to act quickly enough to prevent a crash. While the car or truck driver may not have meant to hurt anyone, those who cause accidents should be held accountable for their actions. At The Law Office of Brian M. Laughlin, PC, we are equipped to help injured motorcycle riders recover the compensation they need to get their lives back on track.

Experienced Motorcycle Accident Counsel in Gurnee and Libertyville

To a motorcycle rider, there is nothing comparable to the feeling of cruising the open road. With the rise in popularity of more stable three-wheel, or "trike," models, increasing numbers of men and women of any age can enjoy riding. While there are many places to ride the open road in Northern Illinois, the region is also home to some of the most heavily-traveled roadways in the country. All it takes is a single moment of inattention by the rider or any other driver for tragedy to strike.

While it might be true that certain motorcycle riders take unnecessary risks on the road, weaving in and out of traffic and popping "wheelies" as they accelerate, most riders are careful, law-abiding motorists. When an accident occurs, however, the stereotype of a reckless rider can cause other drivers and witnesses to blame the rider, even if he or she was riding in a safe manner.

Overcoming these biases requires an immediate and thorough investigation of the crash and the circumstances leading up to it. When you choose The Law Office of Brian M. Laughlin, PC, we will go right to work in determining what happened and who may be responsible. We will review police reports insurance records, witness statements, and any other available information that could be useful in building your case.

This approach has proven effective, and has helped many motorcycle accident victims collect compensation for their injuries. We can do the same for you.
