The Illinois motorcycle accident lawyers at Kass & moses recently were able to recover $1,250,000 on behalf of a client injured in a motorcycle accident in Chicago, Illinois.
Our client, a Chicago, Illinois resident, was injured in a January, 2012, motorcycle accident on Addison Street. The client, a retired union employee and experienced motorcycle rider, was traveling eastbound on Addison on his Harley Fat Boy when the owner of a SUV unlawfully failed to yield the right of way and “T-boned” the motorcycle. Our client flipped over the front of his motorcycle onto the hood of the SUV and then down to the ground below.
Paramedics from the Chicago Fire Department were called to the scene of the accident and the client was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed with: a severely fractured pelvis (which required a total hip replacement and open reduction internal fixation surgery), sinus fractures, and torn rotator cuffs in both his shoulders, among many other injuries.

The Illinois motorcycle accident lawyers at 1-800-Motorcycle were contacted by the client shortly after the accident and immediately commenced an investigation. Liability was established and we assisted in obtaining the client proper medical care. Lawyers intensely searched for insurance policies to compensate the client. Overcoming initial indications that the person who caused the accident had a small policy, our lawyers ultimately learned that the defendant had an umbrella policy which vastly increased the potential recovery.
Our experienced Illinois motorcycle accident lawyers fought to secure the client a recovery of one million two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($1,250,000). We didn’t stop there. Our lawyers then negotiated with the client’s countless medical providers and were able to reduce his medical bills by over $125,000.

“The key to our success was in continuing to press the insurance company to find another insurance policy,” said Illinois motorcycle accident lawyer Joe Moses. He continued, “But you can’t guarantee the person who hits you has enough insurance, as such, it’s important for every rider to purchase enough uninsured (UM) or underinsured (UIM) motorist insurance.”
