A Chicago Legal Group motorcycle accident attorney in Illinois will be available to motorcycle groups and riding clubs to speak on motorcycle insurance.
Online PR News – 13-November-2015 – NORTHBROOK, IL – Chicago Legal Group will run a statewide campaign in 2016 to educate motorcyclists on the need to have proper motorcycle insurance coverage. "Motorcycle Insurance: An Illinois motorcycle accident lawyer's Perspective" will be presented by a motorcycle accident attorney in Illinois. The presentation will cover the different types of motorcycle insurance that all riders should carry as well as the ideal coverage amounts.
"We made several presentations like this last year and they were a huge success. It's extremely important for motorcyclists to not just have insurance but to have the right coverage and the right coverage amounts. If there is an accident with a car, the motorcyclist is the one who is going to be hurt, not the driver of the automobile. That makes it very important to have proper coverage for medical expenses to pay for your medical expenses or compensate you for your pain and suffering," explained Barry Zlotowicz, Esq. of Chicago Legal Group (www.motorcycleattorneychicago.com).
Motorcycle insurance is mandatory in the State of Illinois, but according to Zlotowicz, at least 15% of riders currently on the road are uninsured or severely underinsured. This lack of coverage can be financially devastating if a motorcyclist were to get into a serious accident with another driver who does not have adequate insurance. In that case, the motorcyclist may be faced with having to pay large medical bills him or herself out-of-pocket.
"We always tell riders that they can't control whether an accident happens or not, and they can't control the insurance coverage of the other driver; but what they have complete control over is the amount of coverage they have themselves. If the other driver doesn't have coverage, at least the motorcyclist can rest easy knowing their own coverage will be enough to help them through the aftermath of an accident," said Zlotowicz.
Currently, the firm plans to present to Harley Owners Chapters as well as riding groups for Suzuki, Honda and Can Am, but they do have availability to meet with other groups. A motorcycle accident lawyer in Illinois is able to travel anywhere in the state and even to southern Wisconsin to speak with motorcycle groups.
