Frequently Asked Questions About Illinois Motorcycle Accidents

How common are motorcycle accidents in Illinois?

Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) data estimates that motorcycle accidents account for less than 1% of total vehicle crashes, but 12% of fatal crashes and 3% of injury crashes. This means that there is a much higher likelihood of becoming seriously injured if you are involved in a road incident. Avoid illegal, risky behavior such as lane splitting and take the proper safety precautions.


How long do I have to file a claim after my motorcycle accident?

You have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim.

Why should I file a claim after my motorcycle accident?

If the other party is at fault, you could be entitled to significant monetary compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, permanent disability costs, and pain and suffering. In the worst case scenario, families can file a wrongful death claim to recover money damages for grief, sorrow, loss of society and companionship.

The fact is, getting injured costs a lot. But you shouldn’t be the one to pay.

What causes motorcycle accidents in Illinois?
