Wood River Motorcycle Crash Attorneys
Motorcycles have become a more common sight on the roads in Alton and across Illinois, as well as the rest of the country. People are enjoying motorcycling as recreation as well as using motorcycles for daily transportation. Unfortunately, with the increase in motorcycles on the roads has come an increase in motorcycle crashes. Many drivers refuse to take the time to observe their surroundings and take notice when a motorcycle is near. This negligence leads to devastating accidents that can cause serious injuries, disabilities and death.
At Mormino, Velloff & Snider, P.C., our lawyers provide comprehensive and tailored injury representation to clients and families who are attempting to deal with injuries and losses as the result of a bike accident. We have decades of combined experience handling these types of cases and can provide you with guidance based upon your specific case, needs and goals.
Serious Motorcycle Accident Injuries
When a motorcycle accident occurs, the motorcyclist often suffer much worse injuries in a collision with a car than the driver and/or passengers of the car, due to the lack of protection on a motorcycle. Some of the types of injuries that motorcycle riders often suffer are:
- Traumatic brain injuries (head injuries, concussions)
- Spinal cord injuries (neck injuries, paralysis)
- Broken bones
- Crush injuries
- Amputations and loss of limb
- Road rash (abrasions)
We also handle wrongful death cases that stem from a fatal accident.
Dealing With an Insurance Company
Insurance companies often place the blame for a motorcycle accident on the motorcyclist, alleging that there is an "assumed risk" of potential danger when riding a motorcycle. However, we feel this is an unacceptable claim and fight for the compensation you deserve. Whether we are seeking compensation from your own insurance company or the other party's insurance company, we are dedicated to helping you from beginning to end.
