As a victim in a rideshare accident in Chicago, you can bring a claim to seek compensation for your injuries. It is important to understand the ins and outs of rideshare accident claims. Specifically, you should know who’ll be considered responsible for the accident and which insurance company to contact for compensation.
Figuring out who is liable for a hit and run accident is more complicated than in a traditional car accident case. Illinois state law requires drivers to remain at the scene of any accident they are involved in. Unfortunately, many drivers leave the scene before law enforcement can arrive. This complicates matters for victims who sustain losses in the wake of an accident.

Seriously Hurt in a Bicycle Accident: You May Still Get a Ticket in Illinois

Personal injury lawyers and their clients are all too painfully aware that where a bicycle is involved in a serious bicycle accident – the bicyclist is the driver who sustains the worst injuries (see “bicycle accidents.”) Of course, motorcycle accidents share the same dynamic (same at “motorcycle accidents.”) A recent verdict reported notes the case of a plaintiff bicyclist struck in the pre-dawn hours of January. The young man who was a grocery clerk suffered traumatic brain injury with cognitive brain effect plus a pelvic fracture and aggravation of a hip condition.  It was determined that the defendant, who was operating a car, failed to maintain a proper look-out and safe speed resulting in his inability to avoid striking the bicycle. Plaintiff, however, was ticketed for failure to have reflective equipment on his bike and for improper position on the roadway. We have to ponder-a cyclist on a winter’s morning, traveling the wrong side of the road without reflective gear?!?!?! A hard lesson to learn, the hard way.

The Chicago Accident Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe value our avid cyclist clients and endeavor through our blogsite and TV appearances to provide tips on bicylcle safety and regulations. Please follow us on our website and on WCIU, You and Me in the Morning and help us help you stay safe!
