Although biking remains a popular outdoor activity, it is no longer something people merely do for recreation. People have turned to bicycles as a standard means of transportation as gas prices remain high and as citizens become more environmentally conscious. This has led to an increased number of bicycles on Illinois roads, which unfortunately puts more riders at risk of being involved in serious accidents with motor vehicles.

We realize the stress and worry caused by suffering severe personal injuries, which is why we work hard to see that our clients are fully compensated for their losses.

Illinois Bicycle Injury Representation: Experienced, Aggressive Advocates

As a bike rider, you have the same rights as motor vehicles while you are on the road. However, many drivers ignore this fact and engage in unsafe driving behavior that puts bicyclists at risk. Some of these behaviors could include:

  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Entering bike lanes or crosswalks
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Driving distracted, including texting while driving
  • Speeding or making an illegal turn

These negligent acts can cause riders to suffer serious, sometimes life-threatening injuries such as broken boned, brain injuries, spinal cord or nerve damage or even death. When you visit our firm, we will listen to your story and immediately begin investigating your claim. We will be by your side throughout your entire case and will always be available to answer any questions or address any concerns you might have.
