Because they lack a protective vehicle frame and other safety features, a motorcycle can leave you totally exposed to the brunt of a collision. If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident in Chicago Heights, you could deserve compensation from the other driver and their insurance company.
A Chicago Heights motorcycle accident lawyer from the Kryder Law Group, LLC, can help you get it. We will collect evidence and build a strong case on your behalf. We do not charge you until we win compensation for you (or negotiate a settlement). So, there is no risk in having us on your team. We offer all new clients a free, no-obligation case evaluation, as well.
To get started today, call the Kryder Law Group, LLC to speak with a member of our team.
Compensation for Motorbiking Accidents
Regardless of what caused your motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for several forms of compensation. At the Kryder Law Group, LLC, our job is to figure out who is liable for your injuries, what forms of compensation and how much you qualify for, and how to put together your case before filing a claim.
Our firm has helped many motorcycle accident victims in the Chicago area bring home awards and settlements. We understand how to win tough claims against tough insurance companies and will put the full strength of our knowledge and extensive resources to work for you.
We can help you recover compensation for motorcycle accidents caused by any of the following:
Traffic Law Violations Could Have Endangered You
We will search for evidence that the other driver violated a traffic law — even if they did not receive a citation from the police. If evidence indicates they were speeding, had rolled through a stop sign or red light, followed you too closely, or broke any other driving regulation, we will use that proof to show their liability and help you collect compensation from them and their insurer.
Drunk Driving May Have Led to Your Accident
If the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs — including legal prescription medication that impairs reflexes or judgment — they can be held liable, no matter the circumstances of the accident itself. Just because they passed a breathalyzer does not guarantee they were not impaired. We will dig deeper and find out if intoxication played a role in the crash.
Distracted Driving May Have Harmed You
Our Chicago Heights motorcycle accident lawyers can pore over cell records and look at other evidence that may prove the other driver was distracted. We can use it to hold them liable and help you win compensation.
Carelessness of Any Kind is Negligence
Any kind of careless action behind the wheel (even if it does not rise to the level of a citable traffic violation) can impact another driver. We will look for evidence that the liable driver swerved, failed to signal, did not give you enough clearance when passing, or did anything else that might have contributed to your accident.
Your Biking Injuries May Be the Result of a Shared-Fault Accident
If you believe you might have been partly at fault for your Chicago Heights motorcycle accident, you may still be eligible for compensation. Do not avoid calling us because you think pursuing damages is a waste of time. Section 735 ILCS 5/2-1116, of Illinois compiled statutes, may allow you to collect some compensation (if your percentage of fault is less than 50%). The Kryder Law Group, LLC will fight for the money you may be eligible to recover, even if the accident was partially your fault.

We Can Help You Even if You Were Not Wearing a Helmet
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) asserts that Illinois is one of three states that does not have any sort of motorcycle helmet requirement. The other side may use your lack of a helmet against you when negotiating for compensation, however. The liable driver’s insurance can argue that your injuries would have been less severe with a helmet, and you thus own part of the liability for how badly you were hurt.
However, the Kryder Law Group, LLC, will fight to hold the other driver responsible for their portion of the liability so you can pursue the money you deserve.
The Statute of Limitations on Motorcycle Accidents May Be Relevant in Your Case
In Illinois, the statute of limitations on all motor vehicle accident claims (including those involving motorcycles), is two years for bodily injury and five years for property damage, according to the Illinois General Assembly. The clock starts running the date of the accident. The timeline can also vary if your case has unique factors or extenuating circumstances. The Kryder Law Group, LLC, can take quick action — if necessary — to keep it from expiring.
