Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents
Careful & attentive drivers have no problem locating motorcycles on the road. However, careless drivers strike motorcycles and fall back on the excuse of: "I just didn't see them."
Typical motorcycle accident scenarios include:
- A car pulling out in front of an oncoming motorcycle
- A car changing lanes and swerving into a motorcycle in the adjacent lane
- A car taking a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle

Illinois Law For Motorcycle Accidents
Illinois has a determined amount of time from the date of your motorcycle accident in which you can bring your claim. This is called the statute of limitations and it is the amount of time that you are eligible to file a civil lawsuit to bring a claim against the liable party who caused you pain and suffering and loss. In Illinois, you will get 2 years from the day of your motorcycle accident to file your claim to seek justice.
