Illinois man suffers personal injury after crash

A collision between a car and a motorcycle often ends badly for those on the motorcycle, as many in Illinois know. Sheer size difference can result in a violent impact. In one recent incident between the two types of vehicles, the result left one man with a personal injury.

According to reports, the vehicles were traveling in opposite directions on an Illinois highway just prior to the incident. The driver of the car was stopped at a stop sign as the motorcyclist began to travel through an intersection. For reasons that are as yet unclear, the car proceeded into the intersection. This resulted in the motorcycle striking the car. 

The impact caused the driver of the motorcycle to suffer a personal injury. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Authorities investigating the incident say that it was the driver of the car who was at fault for the crash. He does not appear to have been injured.

As a result of this crash and the personal injury that it caused, the Illinois motorcyclist may now face damages such as time off of work, medical costs and long recovery times. In cases such as this, victims often fear the high economic costs. However, they most often are able to make a personal injury claim against the driver considered at fault, which could award them monies to cover the losses that they have sustained. This will usually help a victim recover, at least economically, more quickly and fully than if he or she did not decide to pursue such a claim.
