Motorcyclists tend to be some of the safest drivers on Illinois roadways, and that is because their very lives depend on it. Indeed, the thing that makes riding a motorcycle so much fun — feeling the wind against your skin and feeling like you are one with the road — causes motorcyclists to be more at risk than vehicle drivers when they are involved in an accident.
Motorcyclists do not have the benefit of airbags and seat belts, nor do they have the protection of a metal frame around them. This means that when a motorcycle rider is involved in a collision, there is a high likelihood of catastrophic injury and fatality.
It takes a personal injury attorney with a special understanding of the law, and a lot of experience with motorcycle crash litigation in order to navigate the difficulties that can present themselves during a motorcycle crash case. At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, our attorneys have the experience it takes to represent motorcycle crash victims. We also have a team of expert witnesses we use when it is necessary to present expert testimony relating to accident scene reconstruction, injury cost analysis and other testimony that can help prove damages and liability in a case.
We have represented plaintiffs in cases where at-fault drivers try to claim that the motorcyclist broke various traffic laws leading up to the crash. We have also represented plaintiffs in cases were defendants try to claim that the motorcyclist is to blame for the crash due to the quality of his or her riding, when in fact, the motorcyclist lost control of his or her bike trying to avoid a negligent at-fault driver.
No matter what kind of circumstances happened in your motorcycle accident, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid are here to help. We will listen to your story during a free no obligation consultation and advise you of your legal rights and options.
