Motorcycle Accidents

Visibility and the ability to stop in time are issues that are frequently involved when determining liability in a motorcycle accident case. These issues can be difficult to investigate without the help of an experienced Chicago motorcycle accident attorney.

At Joseph Klest, Attorney at Law, we are a Chicago-based personal injury law firm that has represented thousands of men and women who have been seriously injured in traffic accidents while riding motorcycles in Chicago and in other cities in Illinois. We know what to look for when determining liability and estimating the compensation amount that you will need to pay for your medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, and other recovery costs, such as lost wages, any permanent disfigurement or disability, as well as pain and suffering.

Chicago Motorcycle Accident Attorney Klest works with qualified experts, including a human factors expert, medical experts, and an accident reconstruction specialist, to determine the causes of a motorcycle accident. Speeding, roadway defects, driver inattention, a defective motorcycle, a fixed object that shouldn’t be on the road, and drunk driving are some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle Injuries Injuries in a motorcycle accident tend to be very severe and frequently catastrophic. Motorcycle riders don’t have a lot of protection when they are on the road, and traumatic brain injuries, first-degree burns, road burns, spinal cord injuries, severed limbs, broken bones, permanent disfigurements, psychological and emotional trauma, and even wrongful death can occur when a motorcyclist is struck by a car, another motorcycle, or a large truck.

Chicago Attorney Joseph Klest personally handles all of his firm’s personal injury cases. He will zealously prosecute your motorcycle accident case to help you achieve the best outcome possible. He is someone that you can talk to, and he will tailor his approach and objectives for your case to your needs. Mr. Klest and his team will work hard to find creative solutions and approaches that can get the job done.

If a settlement cannot be reached, Mr. Klest is a well-respected and skilled trial attorney who has won thousands of personal injury litigation cases in court. He has secured large verdicts for many of his injury clients throughout the greater Chicago area, including clients that have been hurt in motorcycle accidents in Will County, DuPage County, Cook County, and Lake County.

No Motorcycle Helmet Law in Illinois Because Illinois does not have a motorcycle helmet law, a motorcyclist is not required to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. Helmet use-or lack of one-is therefore not a factor when determining if another party was at fault in causing a motorcycle crash.
