Motorcycle accidents can happen for many reasons. A discussion of these reasons is seen on the “Motorcycle Accident Injuries And Fatalities In Will County” page.
Generally speaking, there are two reasons for motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accidents can be caused by the actions of the motorcyclist (i.e. the motorcyclist was at fault in the accident) or the motorcycle accident can be the fault of another party, such as a motorist who is driving negligently.
As discussed on that page, riders who have been hurt during a crash that was not their fault can likely pursue injury compensation through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit. For fatal motorcycle accidents, relevant parties can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the decedent (motorcyclist and/or motorcycle passenger that was killed in the crash.)
