Due to the vulnerability of a motorcyclist, as well as travel at significant speeds, many motorcycle accidents cause serious injuries, and accidents often result in death. Motorcycle injuries often include chest trauma, broken bones, bleeding, injuries to the back, spinal cord injuries/paralysis, and various brain injuries and other head trauma.
A recent Illinois motorcycle accident lawsuit serves as an example of a motorcycle accident that resulted in a lawsuit, including the types of claims such a lawsuit may contain.
The lawsuit, which was filed in St. Clair County Court on July 17, 2015, is discussed in the Madison Record article of August 5 titled “Injured motorcyclist alleges negligence in accident.”
As seen in the article, the motorcycle accident involved an accident on West Main Street near North 16th Street in Belleville, when a parked car allegedly pulled out in front a motorcycle, thus causing a collision.
An excerpt from the article concerning the claims seen in the suit:
The suit says the defendant failed to keep a proper lookout, negligently and carelessly failed to control her vehicle, thus striking the plaintiff’s motorcycle.
The plaintiff alleges severe and permanent injuries, physical pain, mental anguish, disability and disfigurement. The suit says Warnecke is unable to attend to his usual daily affairs and duties, has lost wages and suffered loss of future earning capacity. The plaintiff also alleges property damage to his motorcycle and ongoing past, present and future medical expenses.
