Commentary regarding ways to avoid motorcycle crashes and the accompanying injuries can be found on the “Ways To Avoid Motorcycle Accidents And Injuries” page. While some crashes are outside of the control of the motorcyclist, other types of crashes can be avoided. Given that any motorcycle crash is likely to lead to injuries – and likely serious injuries – taking steps to avoid the likelihood of being in an accident is important.
For those motorcycle accidents that injure the rider, and are the fault of another person (such as a motorist) many motorcyclists choose to file a personal injury lawsuit. The reasons for filing such a lawsuit are discussed on the “Cook County Accident Injuries And Personal Injury Lawsuits” page.
