Springtime in Illinois: Officials begin motorcycle safety effort

Although winter weather may linger a little longer, it's officially spring. As such, Illinois public safety officials are starting to focus on safe driving for the summer months. With warmer weather, more and more people will take to the roads on their motorcycles. This means that Naperville motorists will have to take some precautions.

Officials from the Illinois Department of Transportation say that motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionate amount of motor vehicle fatalities. As part of the "Gear Up-Ride Smart" campaign, bikers throughout the state will be encouraged to make sure they are ready and fully trained to handle the unique aspects of riding a motorcycle. This means that motorcyclists will be encouraged to signal properly, drive at safe speeds and wear protective equipment.

Although motorcyclists can take precautions to protect themselves against accidents, they may not always be responsible for crashes. Drivers in larger vehicles can become distracted and fail to see motorcycles when changing lanes or turning.

All too often, bikers sustain serious or fatal injuries at the hands of drivers who fail to exercise reasonable caution or care. As this program is dedicating most of its efforts to motorcycle riders, it may also be beneficial to remind other drivers of their responsibilities as more motorcycles are on the road.

The unfortunate reality is that motor vehicle accidents will continue to happen in the Chicago area. Knowing this, anyone involved in an accident could benefit from a full understanding of their rights and responsibilities. The unique circumstances behind each accident could play a role in how individuals consider pursuing compensation with a personal injury claim.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
