A Motorcyclist’s Negligent Actions Can Cause Accidents
Motorcyclists are expected to take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of others while riding. If a motorcyclist engages in risky driving behavior and then causes an accident, they can be found responsible for the ensuing damages.
Some of the ways a motorcyclist can cause a collision include:
- Weaving in-between cars
- Performing tricks or stunts on public roads
- Taunting other drivers or engaging in road rage
- Braking suddenly
- Failing to adhere to stop signs, traffic signals, and other posted guidelines
- Riding under the influence of drugs, alcohol or fatigue
- Distracted driving
One of your legal team’s first steps will be to determine how your accident occurred. By reviewing traffic surveillance footage, reading the police report, and interviewing eyewitnesses, they can begin the process of assigning liability. From there, your Bolingbrook negligent motorcycle rider accident lawyer will need to prove that negligence on the part of the motorcyclist contributed to your accident.
Compensation in a Successful Case Can Cover Your Losses
After the actions of a negligent motorcyclist have caused your injuries, you are likely facing financial stressors that are impacting your quality of life. At The Kryder Law Group, LLC, we believe that the party who caused your accident should be responsible for your damages, not you.
If your case is successful, whether it be before a judge or out of court, you may be able to get coverage for the following:
- Medical bills, including emergency intervention and follow-up care
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
If you are seeking compensation for an item that we have not listed here, you should share those details with your legal team. Our goal is to build a case that is able to cover the cost of your accident-related expenses.
You should share all documents showing the extent of your financial losses with your lawyer, as this will allow them to calculate the value of your damages. Medical receipts, pay stubs, bank statements, and other documents can provide valuable insight into the details of your collision.
Do Not Speak to Insurance Companies Alone
When an accident involving a negligent motorcyclist lands you in the hospital with serious injuries, the last thing you need is relentless insurance companies contacting you. Our legal team can protect your best interests by handling communications with the involved insurance companies on your behalf.
Do not sign any documents without fully understanding their contents. If you accept a settlement offer, you may be barred from pursuing civil action later, should additional costs arise.
The initial amount an insurance company offers may seem like a large sum. Yet, chances are they did not take into account the severity of your injuries and do not fully understand the extent of your losses.
A Bolingbrook negligent motorcycle rider accident lawyer from The Kryder Law Group, LLC can negotiate for the compensation you deserve. If we are unable to settle your case out of court, we are ready to go to trial.
Illinois Statute of Limitations
To prepare a case that promotes financial recovery, our team needs time to review the details of your accident. The statute of limitations is a state law that limits how long you have to pursue civil action. The Illinois Code of Civil Procedure allows you two years from the date of your accident to move forward with legal proceedings.
Once this deadline expires, you will likely be unable to pursue compensation for your injuries and have to pay for your damages out of pocket.
