Bikers deserve protection, too. There is a reputation and myths surrounding motorcycle culture: One of recklessness, thrill-seeking, and adventure. When it comes to bike accidents, however, the statistics show a different story. According to federal reports, approximately 80% of all motorcycle accidents are partially or totally the fault of the vehicle driver or drivers involved.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers at the Drew Law Group arte proud to represent injured motorcycle riders in Franklin County, Jefferson County, and all of Southern Illinois. We are here to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve, and we’re here to be your voice after an accident.
Our firm can look into the accident and see what happened. If someone else was at fault in causing the accident—in whole or in part—you could be entitled to compensation for the losses you sustained as a result of the accident.
After receiving the medical care you need and ensuring everyone else on the scene also has care, another important thing you do for your future is to document the scene of the accident, if you are physically able to do so. Get the names and contact information of eyewitnesses. Take photos of the crash scene. When you can, write down everything you remember. Document your injuries and get copies of police reports and medical reports. Speak with a personal injury attorney as quickly as possible.
