ChicagoMotorcycle Accident Lawyer
Due to the small nature of motorcycles compared to other automobiles, accidents often result from low visibility or distractions on the road. The Fitz Law Group represents victims and their loved ones who suffer serious injuries, death, lost wages and suffering due to motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable and are five times more likely to be injured on the road than car and truck drivers.
88,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic crashes in 2006. Motorcycle rider fatalities accounted for 11 percent of the total 2006 fatalities, 13 percent of all occupant fatalities and 4 percent of all occupants injured. Most often, other drivers involved in an accident with motorcycles fail to see the motorcycle at all until the moment just before impact and sometimes not until after the motorcycle accident has actually occurred.
Injuries Suffered from Motorcycle Accident
Despite taking safety precautions such as wearing reflective, protective gear, getting the proper training, and maintaining visibility, permanent disability and deaths still occur from motorcycle accidents. Typical accident injuries include brain injury and concussion, spinal cord injury and paralysis, scarring, amputation or loss of limb function, and lacerations. After an accident, it is imperative to call the police, seek immediate medical attention, and find legal representation to protect your rights.
