We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable

Motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionate percentage of traffic deaths in Illinois. Often these accidents are caused by another person’s negligence, such as:

  • Swerving into a lane occupied by a bike
  • Making a left-hand turn in front of a bike
  • Rear-ending a stopped motorcycle
  • Debris in the roadway
  • A safety defect in the motorcycle

Our lawyers work with investigators to help us gather the evidence necessary to hold the liable party legally and financially accountable. While money cannot take away the grief your family is experiencing, it can address financial issues caused by the death. Our lawyers will guide you through the legal process and help you determine which family members are eligible for compensation.
