Unfortunately motorcycle accidents in Chicago are also very common. Riding a motorcycle poses serious risks-without the physical protection cars offer.
Motorcyclists are more susceptible to serious injury posed by other drivers, defective roadway design, harsh weather conditions, and product defects.
Victims may sustain broken limbs, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, and other harm, including death. In fact, in 2000 alone, 2,862 motorcyclists were killed, and another 58,000 were injured.
If motorcyclists do survive their crashes, they may face large medical bills, job loss, permanent disability, and other hardships.
