On Sunday September 18 2016 police responded to an accident. Unfortunately, it was a left turn accident. These happen most often at intersections where a driver takes a left in front of oncoming traffic. If you are on the receiving end of this and you are on a motorcycle you are going to have a very bad day. In this case, the motorcycle rider was heading north on Rand and someone in a Mercedes was heading south when they attempted to take a left onto Winslowe. An article on CBS Chicago says that the cyclist, from Arlington Heights, was taken to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he was pronounced dead at 7:06 p.m.
Funeral expenses, loss of income, mental stress, pain and suffering – these are all things that survivors left behind from a fatal motorcycle accident can expect to be compensated for.
In many cases, insurance companies try to pay out as little as possible. Some may even try to blame the deceased for the accident, which is especially annoying or even outrageous at times.
