Illinois Motorcycle Operation Laws

Representing Motorcycle Accident Victims and Their Families

Illinois follows the "comparative fault" rule in motor vehicle accident cases. This means that your driving behavior in the immediate minutes and seconds before a motorcycle accident can affect your ability to recover compensation. Your damages for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering may be reduced by an appropriate percentage, based on your contribution to the accident.

The good news for bike riders is that they can recover compensation when another driver's negligence or inattention leads to an accident. Motorcycle accident cases, however, require thorough investigation and tenacious advocacy at all stages of the legal process.

For all intents and purposes, Illinois motorcycle operation laws are no different from those for operating a car or truck. There is no helmet law. You must obey signals and drive in a manner that is appropriate for traffic and weather conditions.

When you are investigating a motorcycle accident, however, it is very important to learn what really happened, rather than taking witness statements and the police report at face value. Cavanagh Law Group will use a professional accident investigator and other specialists to determine how the accident happened and to make a full accounting of your financial losses and medical needs. Cavanagh Law Group will be your strong advocate, working hard to obtain the compensation and medical care you deserve.
