Searching for an Oak Brook motorcycle accident lawyer to represent your personal injury case? The motorcycle accident lawyers at the Law Firm of Kass & Moses have represented injured motorcyclists for over thirty years. With hundreds of motorcycle accidents under their belt, they have the experience you need.
There are many injuries commonly associated with motorcycle accidents. The rate of injuries and fatalities in motorcycle accidents far exceeds that of cars and trucks. That is partly because motorcyclists are largely exposed to the full brunt of the crash. Even with safety gear, gloves, and helmets, injuries are inevitable. Another reason injuries are more likely is that motorcycles have a small profile and are easily overlooked by motorists.

One of the most common injuries experienced by motorcyclists is a traumatic brain injury or a concussion. This head injury occurs when the brain is jarred within the skull, usually during impact. The brain is incredibly sensitive to injury. Brain bleeds and swelling, in particular, can lead to severe brain damage. That is why it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately following a motorcycle accident. Even if you were wearing a helmet, the chance of head injury is high.
Motorcycle accident victims often require time off of work as their head injuries heal. That is because symptoms of head injuries include things like headaches, confusion, dizziness, and an inability to concentrate. It is important to rest physically as well as mentally after a motorcycle accident.
As Oak Brook IL motorcycle accident lawyers, we have represented hundreds of injured bikers. We specialize in motorcycle accident law because we ride motorcycles, too. We are familiar with the lifestyle as well as the quest for freedom on the open road.
One of the biggest complaints motorcycle riders have after a crash is that they feel they are being harassed by the insurance company. It’s true- insurance adjusters sometimes call relentlessly in an effort to get you to settle your case. That is because, once you settle your case, you can no longer seek further compensation. In many cases, this can leave you settling for far less than you truly deserve.

Many motorcyclists feel that the odds are stacked against them when a motorcycle accident occurs. Often, police may seem biased against the biker. In some cases this may be true. But in many cases it is simply a matter of the police officer not understanding the physics associated with motorcycles. When an accident occurs, motorcycles maneuver and brake very differently than cars. But most police officers receive little training in the nuances that separate motorcycles from other vehicles on the road.
This is one of the reason we work with a team of motorcycle accident reconstruction experts. These experts can examine evidence from the scene of the accident, police reports, photographs, and witness statements to determine exactly what happened in a crash. In some cases, this can greatly affect your ultimate compensation.
We also work with medical professionals trained to recognize and determine expected costs associated with many different injuries. Many injuries require long-term medical care, or future expected medical expenses. Our experts can determine not only your present medical costs, but also what costs you may have in the future. Again, experts like these can greatly impact your cases.
You may be concerned about the costs associated with hiring a personal injury attorney. Rest assured, at the Law Firm of Kass & Moses we work on a contingency basis. That means that you will not pay anything until your case is settled. At settlement, we will receive a portion of your total compensation. This covers not only our fees but also the fees associated with medical experts, accident reconstruction specialists, and other professionals we use.
Whether your motorcycle accident occurred in Oak Brook IL or somewhere else, we can help you. With just a quick phone call to 1-800-MOTORCYCLE, you can speak with a personal injury lawyer from our team and get on the path to rightful compensation.
Some people feel their injuries are too small or insignificant to be worth a personal injury case. In some cases, that is true. But many injuries are considered more significant than you might expect due to the long-term ramifications of the injury. For example, a concussion might require you to take a week or two off of work, but you may feel that your losses are limited and you do not have a personal injury case. But scientific studies have proven that concussions and head injuries are associated with increased depression as well as long-term increased risks of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurological disorders.
Further, some injuries simply do not heal as expected. Consider, for example, a leg fracture. The emergency room physician might apply a cast for you to wear for six weeks. But what happens when that six weeks is up? What if you are still experiencing pain, discomfort, or weakness? What if your leg has lost some strength or flexibility? What if the bone did not heal properly? What if you have nerve damage in your leg?
It is these “what ifs” that make an Oak Brook motorcycle accident lawyer wince. We have seen how greatly people can be affected by injuries that initially seemed simply and easy to resolve. Until your injury has healed completely, it is not wise to accept an offer of compensation. Once you have reached what we call “maximum medical improvement,” only then can we understand the full extent of your losses.
It can be frustrating to wait for compensation, especially if you suffer lost wages in addition to medical bills. Our motorcycle accident attorneys can explain to you how much you might be able to expect, based on your injuries and the extent of your insurance policy and that of the other driver.
Do not assume just any car accident lawyer can represent your case. A motorcycle accident attorney has special understanding not only of the law related to motorcycles, but also of physics associated with braking, statistics associated with motorcycle crashes, and more. With your financial future on the line, it pays to seek the very best.
