Chicago Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Over the past few decades, the popularity of cycling has increased dramatically. In addition to biking for exercise, many individuals use their bicycles as a primary mode of transportation. Although this is a more green and certainly a healthier option than driving, it can also be quite dangerous. In many places, there are no designated lanes for bikers, and they are forced to squeeze between lanes of cars or too close to the curb. Even when there are designated bike lanes, many drivers do not look carefully for riders before pulling into the bike lane to turn or park.

Injuries in Bicycle Accidents
When bicyclists are involved in accidents with cars, the results are often tragic. Cyclists are on bikes, which often only weigh around 30 pounds, so physics works against them when they collide with 3,000 pound cars. We represent individuals who are injured in accidents caused by motorists entering the roadway, motorists failing to yield, motorists turning and motorists passing cyclists. In these accidents, injuries can include:
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Wrist and elbow fractures
- Rotator cuff tears
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fatal injuries
