Personal Injury Attorneys Pursue Fighting for Full Compensation
Motorcycles are very vulnerable when on the road, as they rely on other drivers to pay attention and drive safely in order to prevent accidents. When car and truck drivers operate their vehicles negligently, and fail to see motorcycles, serious accidents and injuries can easily occur.

How Much Does a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Cost?
Most motorcycle accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. That means that you have nothing to lose by contacting an experienced lawyer to represent you. Our experienced motorcycle accident law firm receives no payment unless we recover compensation for you.
Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Illinois?
In Illinois, there is no law that requires the use of a motorcycle helmet while riding. However, just because it is not required by law, it doesn’t mean riders shouldn’t wear one.
Wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of a head injury if you are in an accident by protecting the head and brain from impact and help absorb the shock of a crash. Helmets can also help prevent facial injuries, such as cuts and bruises, which can occur when a rider's face collides with the ground or other objects during a crash.
Apart from safety benefits, a helmet can also improve your overall riding experience. A good quality helmet can reduce the deafening wind noise, and it can prevent dust, bugs, and other debris from flying into your face.
An important note to take into consideration is that not all helmets are created equal. When choosing a helmet, it is important to select one that meets the safety standards set by the Department of Transportation (DOT).
