INJURIES AND CLAIMS
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, you can receive financial compensation. According to Illinois's Comparative Fault law, if the motorcycle accident was not 50% or more your fault, you are eligible to receive financial compensation for your damages.
Damages you may have incurred can include medical expenses, future medical costs, loss of income, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, and punitive damages. When the other driver's conduct is extremely negligent or reckless, the judge may order punitive damages to be awarded to punish and deter future egregious behaviors.
Insurance companies may try to trick motorcyclists into accepting liability for their accidents, and offering them an unfairly low compensation. To do this, they will focus on small points, such as road conditions, failure to wear a helmet, and vehicle maintenance, which can add up.
Insurance companies will use these reasons to place blame on you for the injuries, and reduce your compensation.
