Last week, outside Buffalo a sheriff’s deputy assigned to escort duty on a motorcycle was injured when a car failed to yield the right of way to him and made a left hand turn in front of him. The deputy had to be taken to the hospital for leg and should injuries. Sadly, this is like many of the other motorcycle accident cases we have discussed this year where the driver of the car failed to yield the right of way while making a left turn.This motorcycle accident presents a classic type of third party car accident liability suit. First because the deputy was on duty, he would be entitled to receive worker’s compensation benefits in Illinois. Second, because someone else was to blame for the accident, he can also pursue a lawsuit for his motorcycle accident. This is commonly referred to as a third party liability suit.The legal relationship between the worker’s compensation case and the liability case can be very complex, so we always recommend hiring an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer to work with you on cases such as this to ensure that you take home the maximum possible compensation for your injuries.
