Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of spinal cord injury in the United States. The most severe nerve damage after a car accident includes paralysis or loss of motor function—conditions that affect a person’s ability to perform normal, everyday functions. In milder cases, nerve damage can result in discomfort, pain, and temporary impairment.

If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it can be a nightmare to find out that the responsible driver has minimal insurance limits or no insurance at all. Fortunately, if you have uninsured motorist (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage, you can avoid this nightmare depending on the extent of UM or UIM coverage you carry on your own insurance policy.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, (IDOT), there have been 100 fatalities from motorcycle accidents in Illinois as of September 2020. When motorcyclists get into accidents, they are more at risk for suffering fatal injuries because they are more exposed to the force of the blow than an occupant in a car would be.

Looking back to 2018, which has the most recent crash data for the state from the Illinois Department of Transportation, there were around 3,000 motorcycle wrecks and over 2,000 motorcyclists injured in those crashes. From 2016 to 2017, IDOT reported the same percent of motor vehicle accidents for motorcycle accidents, which was 1.1 percent. In 2018, though, that percentage fell to less than 1 percent.
