Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
With the number of motorcycle riders on the rise, so are the amount of accidents involving motorcyclists. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers of Chicago, IL just launched it’s new website that will address the issues that concern Illinois motorcyclists and their safety. The new site, Chicago Motorcycle Injury Lawyers (http://www.chicagomotorcycleinjurylawyers.com), is geared towards bringing awareness to safety, product and legal issues that concern motorcycle riders.
In the last decade, motorcycle registrations in the U.S. have increased roughly 75%, to the point that in 2006 there were over 6.6 million registered motorcycles on the highways. With the increase of these motorcyclists on the roads, there also comes a price. While in 2008 motor vehicle fatalities reached an all-time low, the Center for Disease Control reported an all-time high in motorcycle fatalities. The number of motorcycle fatalities more than doubled since 1999.
The injuries that can be sustained from a motorcycle accident can be life changing. If the rider is lucky enough to survive, victims may be suffering from traumatic brain injuries, amputations, spinal injuries and paralysis. This new site gives practical information on what these types of injuries can entail as far as recovery and offers hope in the form of legal representation.
This new website is more than just legal advice. The site is dedicated to providing useful information for motorcyclists, including motorcycle laws, safety information, news links and resource information. Jonathan Rosenfeld, the founder of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, is an avid motorcyclist himself and understands the perils associated with riding, both from other drivers and defective products, and from lack of safety precautions on the part of the rider themselves.
This new website will be a great resource for the residents of Illinois to turn to when they have questions or concerns regarding motorcycle laws or safety. It also lets them know their rights if they are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident. To check out the site, go to http://www.chicagomotorcycleinjurylawyers.com.
