About Us

On A Motorcycle, Life Can Change In The Blink of An Eye

Like every biker the world over, we all wave pulling away from the house, ready for a roadie. Like countless times before, we take familiar routes to reach the interstate. Cares melt away as we speed up to merge. Freedom fills our heads just enough to distract us from the driver on our left who forgot to check their blind spot as they change lanes.

With over 30 years of handling motorcycle accident cases, we at Motorcycle Safety Lawyers® think about these types of accidents all the time. We think about the questions you’ll need to answer after your accident, such as, “How am I going to pay for all of this?”, and “Who’s gonna take care of my family?”

We know the anxiety and stress you’ll feel. The only thing we can really tell you for sure is that we’re going to do whatever we can to take care of you – to get a settlement that works in your favor.

As a division of Shuman Legal®, we opened our doors in Chicago back in 1996, and we have successfully represented more than twenty thousand injured victims since then, with millions of dollars in recoveries.

Our motorcycle injury lawyers will explain your legal options and legal remedies when you or a loved one has been injured. We understand that a favorable outcome is of the utmost importance to our clients and their families.

Our Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers have specialized knowledge and understanding of how motorcycle accidents, and injuries, differ from other types of accidents.

Going Further for the Motorcycle Community

Did you know that the majority of people who search for “personal injury lawyer near me” are motorcycle riders? The motorcycle community is a massive one, and we’re proud to be a part of it and are working to push it further, and in an effort to do so, we became a founding member of the National Academy of Motorcycle Injury Lawyers (NAMIL).

If you need a motorcycle injury lawyer, an accident injury lawyer or you feel like you need to find the best personal injury lawyer experienced in any of all of these tragedies – we have you covered. Our testimonials from valued clients, at the bottom of this page say it all.

The Future of American Motorcycling is in safe hands.

American motorcycling is changing. Some say not for the better. We disagree. Yes, there is an apparent change of the guard on the horizon, but that does not mean the heart and culture of Americans on motorcycles will not endure. There is an entirely new generation (over 80 million), that wants to enjoy the same freedoms and adventure that generations before have experienced.

Sure, where we once had roads lined with heavy horse-powered cruisers and low riders, this evolution will see millions traveling in a slightly different direction. This new generation of motorcyclists love safety – and think about it first. They use the latest tech to protect themselves and the environment around them.

They are transforming the world of motorcycles into something new – not to kill it – but so that it may endure. They love riding anywhere the weather is good and the roads are better. They love scenery and rallies. They’ve got hard-core enthusiasts, weekend warriors, and badasses. They love supporting causes and the communities they live in.

It’s our goal at Motorcycle Safety Lawyers® to lead the way with all generations of motorcycle enthusiasts, teaching and sharing our knowledge, and passing the torch in the favor of all.

Because bikers matter!
