The Severity of Motorcycle Collisions
Motorcyclists are not offered the same protections as vehicle occupants. Motorcyclists are exposed to the open road and other motor vehicles without the added protection of vehicle walls, a seatbelt, and airbags. In the event of a collision, motorcyclists often suffer devastating and life-altering injuries.
No Other Firm Comes Close
Not only have we won more than $4 billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients, but that amount is also $700 million more than our closest competitor since 2000. Attorneys at our firm have also recovered a number of record-breaking awards as well, including a $100 million wrongful death result – the largest award for a single family in the state of Illinois.
For our experience, integrity, and results in the field of personal injury, we have had the honor of being listed as one of the “Best Law Firms” by U.S. News, among many other honors. If you or a loved one was involved in a serious motorcycle collision, get in touch with the lawyers at Power Rogers & Smith today!
