The first thing you should do after any kind of accident is seek medical attention. Even if you don’t think you need to, it is important to establish whether you are injured. Your next step is to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you determine fault and seek compensation from the appropriate parties.
If your motorcycle accident involves serious damage, injury or death, you must tell the police. It is also a good idea to call law enforcement if you want to pursue compensation from another party. The police report could support and benefit your claim.
Illinois is one of only three states that do not have any helmet laws. Despite this fact, it is advisable to always wear a helmet when operating a motorcycle. If you do get into an accident, the helmet could save your life and prevent serious brain injury.
The Illinois standard of comparative negligence means that more than one party could be found at fault. If you are pursuing a claim, your possible compensation will be measured based on your contribution to the cause of the accident. For example, if you are found to be 10 percent at fault, your potential damage reward will be lowered by 10 percent. You may only recover damages if you are less than 50 percent at fault.
