Most motorcycle accidents are caused by negligence. To that end, the person responsible for the accident is the one who committed the negligence. In most motorcycle accident cases, claims can be brought against both the owner of the at-fault vehicle and the at-fault driver. In most cases, the driver of a vehicle also owns a vehicle. The Illinois legislature requires all drivers on the road to carry bodily injury liability insurance coverage of at least $20,000 per person and $40,000 per incident, as well as $15,000 for property damage. A driver failing to furnish such insurance coverage may have their license suspended.

The insurance company will pay up to a limit of elective coverage known as Bodily Injury Coverage or simply BI. The limits of coverage are normally defined as a limit per person, and a limit per accident. For example, a $20,000/$40,000 BI policy indicates that the insurance company will pay up to $20,000 per injured person, but no more than $40,000 for all injured parties. Illinois also requires that all drivers obtain uninsured motorist coverage that is equal to your policy’s bodily injury liability coverage. This means that all Illinois drivers must also carry uninsured motorist insurance coverage of at least $20,000 per person and $40,000 per incident.

Insurance companies hire Bodily Injury Adjusters who are very friendly and appear to be trusting. DON’T BE FOOLED. Never let an insurance adjuster tell you that there is no Bodily Injury Coverage, or that you cannot bring a claim against their insured. Our staff will aggressively pursue all avenues of available coverage and exhaust all efforts to investigate what coverage exists. This includes a full asset check on the owner and driver of the at-fault vehicle. REMEMBER, all of our investigative work is done at NO COST unless we win your case.
