Lane Change Accidents
Unsafe/unexpected lane changes result in a significant percentage of motorcycle accidents each year, and reckless driving, particularly “road rage,” is commonly linked to these accidents. However, general negligence is also a common cause, such as when drivers fail to utilize their mirrors or check their blind spots before veering into a motorcyclist’s path. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to another driver’s negligence, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance companies on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Lane-change accidents typically result from a driver’s negligence or road rage, and either an accidental or intentional failure to ensure a lane-change could be safely executed before doing so. Distraction and fatigue can also play roles in a driver’s lack of awareness of surrounding vehicles, and other causes include forced lane-changes, failure to use turn signals, weaving in and out of traffic, and intoxication.
While Illinois motorcyclists are not legally required to wear helmets, we highly recommend doing so, and not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident does not necessarily bar you from compensation for your injuries. Motorcyclists can suffer from serious injuries in these accidents even when wearing helmets, such as severe burns/lacerations, broken or severed limbs, or partial or full paralysis, and motorcyclists deserve to be compensated when a driver’s negligence directly results in the accident.
