Lawyers For Motorcycle Accident Victims — With Experience That Wins In Central Illinois

Serious motorcycle mishaps typically occur because drivers do not accord your fair share of the road, or fail to see motorcyclists in the first place. Other causes are poorly marked road construction, road defects, slick roads and intersection collisions.

Since motorcyclists travel unprotected from the elements, their injuries sometimes require a lifetime of expensive treatment and ongoing special needs, not to mention the emotional burden on your family. Therefore, you need maximum financial compensation that can help you move on with your life.

To eliminate any concerns you might have about the cost of our representation, and to allow you to focus on a complete recovery from your motorcycle accident injuries, we provide our legal services on a contingency fee basis. You owe no attorney fee unless we win your case.

Your initial consultation with our skilled accident lawyers is free. Contact Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti. Call or email us immediately. We reply promptly to your email.

When Drivers Are Inattentive, Biking Can Be Deadly

In 2012, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released data that revealed that cycling deaths accounted for roughly 2 percent of all fatalities even though bicycle riders only accounted for 1 percent of road traffic. Due to the lack of safety features on a bicycle, riders are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries or death in an accident.

While a bicyclist might be cushioned by a helmet, heavy clothing, and elbow and kneepads, the bicycle itself offers no protection in an impact. At The Law Offices of Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, our lawyers have represented countless injured Illinois clients. Whether your accident was caused by a car drifting into the bike lane or a driver failing to see you in an intersection, our personal injury attorneys are ready to represent you.

A Century Of Legal Experience

Bike accidents can be severe, leading to serious, long-lasting injuries. An accident can result from numerous situations, including:

  • Cars failing to yield at an intersection: It is not uncommon for a vehicle to stop at an intersection and look both ways for other vehicles. Unfortunately, the driver will simply not see a bicyclist before turning or crossing the intersection.
  • Cars entering a roadway: When exiting a parking lot, parking garage or even a driveway, it is not uncommon for drivers to fail to see bicyclists.
  • Cars driving into a designated bike lane: When turning, entering a roadway or attempting to pass a turning vehicle, it is possible for a driver to strike a rider.

These, and numerous other situations, can lead to devastating accidents. If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident in Peoria or other communities through Illinois, call our firm.

As a personal injury firm, we take cases on contingency, so you will not pay any attorney fees until we obtain a verdict or settlement for you. Call The Law Offices of Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, or email us to schedule your free initial consultation.

Trucking Accident Litigation In Illinois

An accident involving an 18-wheeler can be a life-changing event. You could be dealing with serious physical and emotional pain and suffering, the challenges of paying for medical expenses and covering other costs, especially if you have lost wages from work due to your injuries.

These and other fears are common for people after a motor vehicle accident. With the attorneys of The Law Offices of Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, you can put your fears to rest.

Complications In Truck Accident Cases

In general, truck accident litigation is much more complicated than most other motor vehicle accident claims. For one thing, bigger vehicles lead to bigger injuries. Most truck accidents involve catastrophic or even fatal personal injuries, as well as significant property damage.

Further, the trucking industry is heavily regulated by federal law, state law and the industry itself, which can complicate the litigation.

Another complicated aspect of truck accident cases involves the physical research and accident reconstruction. Because of the catastrophic nature of these accidents, truck cases involve intense research to uncover evidence of liability.

At Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, we have extensive experience with all aspects of semi-truck and tractor-trailer accident litigation in Illinois, and we are connected with a network of accident reconstructionist, forensic experts and other experts to help us build strong cases for our clients.

We work hard for our clients on a contingency fee basis, so you will not pay attorney fees until we obtain a favorable outcome or settlement on your behalf.

Pedestrian And Bicycle Accident Litigation

The physical and emotional recovery from serious injuries after a motor vehicle accident can be a tremendous challenge. The injuries and challenges are only increased if you were walking or riding a bike when hit by a motor vehicle. Without the protections afforded to automobile drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists often suffer severe injuries in these accidents.

At The Law Offices of Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, we can help you. Our lawyers have more than 100 years of combined legal experience representing clients.

If you have been injured or if someone you love has suffered a wrongful death as a pedestrian or bicycle accident, our attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you need.

Handling All Types Of Pedestrian Accident Claims

We represent clients in all types of pedestrian and bicycle accident claims, including accidents involving:

  • Crosswalks and parking lots: With a new outdoor mall in Peoria and a number of major shopping centers in the area, we see a significant number of accidents in parking lots.
  • Low speed injuries: Even if your accident does not seem major, it is critical to seek medical attention immediately, because some major injuries are not immediately obvious.
  • Bicycle accidents: With numerous bicycle trails and an enthusiastic bicycling community in the area, we represent clients injured in bicycle accidents.

Do not let the anxiety about physical recovery, medical bills or lost wages overwhelm you after a pedestrian or bicycle accident. Our attorneys can help you through the process. We will handle your case with dedication and care, and we take cases on contingency, so you will not have to pay any attorney fees until we are successful in your case.

Rollover Accident Litigation Attorney

Driving a car, truck or SUV that rolls over is a traumatic, life-changing experience. In addition to the intense physical pain and suffering, many rollover accident victims experience some form of post-traumatic stress, as well as the anxieties involved with medical bills and lost wages. Let us ease your anxiety and help you get back on your feet.

At The Law Offices of Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, we help clients in SUV rollover accidents, commercial vehicle rollovers and other rollover accidents. Our attorneys understand the challenges you are dealing with after a tragedy of this kind, and we are committed to help you get the best results we can.

Every case is unique. At Cherry, Frazier, Sabin and Giganti, we have the experience and knowledge to seek out every possible avenue to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Maximizing Compensation

For most auto accident victims, a lawsuit stemming from an auto accident is not about striking it rich. Maximizing accident compensation is usually more about finding a way to cover medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, and the pain and suffering of an accident while still making ends meet.

Step One: Get Medical Attention

The first and most important step is to receive appropriate medical care. Even if you don’t feel any pain or don’t know about any serious injuries, it is critical to seek a sound medical opinion, because many injuries are difficult to detect immediately. Our lawyers can help you find an exceptional doctor who will help us assess the immediate and long-term injuries and costs.

Step Two: Start Your Claim

It is important to get in touch with a lawyer right away to start your claim. In addition to the possibility of losing your right to bring a claim due to the statute of limitations, the passage of time can result in the unavailability of witnesses and lost evidence that could be critical to your claim.

Step Three: Obtain Compensation

Our lawyers explore every option for maximum compensation, including:

  • Uncovering all available insurance coverage: our lawyers seek compensation first from the other driver’s insurance policy. Then, if that proves inadequate, we also seek compensation from the client’s insurance company or other insurance policies held by other parties involved in the accident.
  • Lien holders: We have tremendous experience handling the complex negotiations that arise when lien holders come into play as we’re seeking compensation for our clients.
  • Multiple claims: In addition to the primary auto accident claim, other claims could present themselves depending on the circumstances, including a product liability claim if one of the automobiles in the accident was defective, a dram liability claim if the other driver was intoxicated, or a worker’s compensation claim if the accident occurred while on the job.
  • Other options: Although the above three are the most common sources for compensation in accident litigation, other sources also arise in some cases.

We are committed to exploring every possible option to obtain maximum compensation for our clients.
