A T-Bone motorcycle crash is a type of side-impact accident that occurs when a motor vehicle doesn’t stop at an intersection and hits the side of the motorcycle that’s lawfully moving through the intersection.
When a motor vehicle can't stop when a motorcyclist stops or follows a motorcycle too closely, the vehicle could hit the motorcycle from the back, causing a rear-end crash.
When one car is in the wrong lane, the front of the motor vehicle may collide with the motorcycle that’s proceeding lawfully in its own lane.
Often, drivers think motorcyclists are farther away than they’re because of the motorcycle’s small size. Thus, they may make a left turn when they don’t have enough time to do so safely—and the motorcyclist may collide with the side of their vehicle.

The Jury Verdict Research published by Thomson Reuters reports that from 1999 to 2006, the median motorcycle injury verdict--after a personal injury trial was $73,700. Motorcycle accident victims who slid on loose gravel and suffered broken vertebrae and nerve damage received $1,600,000 in a settlement.
The wrongful death compensation was $355,000 after the plaintiff was killed when the at-fault party pulled a small trailer and turned left in front of the motorcyclist at high speed. $300,000 settlement after the at-fault party’s truck turned left in front of a motorcyclist. Here the injured party’s bodily injuries were limited to aggravation of pre-existing herniated discs, a torn knee ligament, and soft tissue injuries.

Often, motor vehicle drivers are held liable for motorcycle collisions, but the actions of the motorcyclist and the driver are considered in the final decision. When the fault of a motorcycle accident is unsafe roadways, government entities responsible for road construction and management might be held liable for the accident.
Fault is calculated based on arguments made by lawyers using evidence provided in an investigation and then determined by the judge in his or her final decision. Typically, motorcycles pose less of a threat on roadways than passenger vehicles, and the judge considers this when making his or her decision. However, if evidence proves a motorcyclist was partially responsible for the accident, the judge will deduct damages from the final settlement based on his or her calculation of plausible liability.
You must consult a personal injury attorney or wrongful death lawyer to investigate the incident fully to determine which party is liable in your personal injury lawsuit. At Chicago car accident attorneys, are experienced investigators who will examine all the evidence available and help you find those at fault for your accident.
