What You Should Know About Motorcycle Accidents in Cook County

 Posted on October 13, 2022 in Motorcycle Accidents

Glenview, IL motorcycle accident lawyerThe path to a complete physical recovery might be challenging for anybody hurt in a motorcycle accident. Medical costs and other damages can mount in the interim - costs that, if someone else's conduct led to your disaster, you should not be required to cover. At Gruzmark Law, Ltd., we have a proven track record of victory in injury claims resulting from motorcycle accidents in Northern Illinois, and we are aware of what it takes to achieve success. 

How Long Do I Have to File a Case After I Was Involved in a Motorcycle Accident?

The typical statute of limitations in Illinois is two years from the date of the motorcycle accident. The Illinois Statute of Limitations governs this time frame. The statute of limitations is not absolute, as is the case with many laws. 

A case's deadline could be extended if:

  • When the accident occurred, you were under the age of 18

  • When the accident occurred, you lacked mental capacity

  • You are bringing a wrongful death claim on behalf of someone who passed away in a collision due to violent intentional conduct  

A case's filing window might potentially be shortened if:

  • A government vehicle was involved in your accident

What Damages Can I Recover in a Successful Illinois Motorcycle Accident Case?

The damage caused by your motorbike accident cannot be undone. However, you should not be forced to shoulder the cost of a collision brought on by someone else's carelessness. Instead, you should battle for your past, present, and future and fight for recovery for the following categories:

  • Pain and Suffering - You deserve compensation for these serious injuries even though a monetary settlement cannot erase your physical anguish and mental suffering

  • Medical Expenses - This covers all medical costs for operations, hospital stays, prescriptions, assistive medical equipment, and therapeutic interventions

  • Out-of-Pocket Costs - This covers any additional expenses you incurred as a result of the accident, such as burial expenses if a loved one passed away

  • Lost Income - Any income, whether a portion or the entire sum, may be recovered
