Bicycling is more popular than ever, thanks to our desire to seek fitness-related activities and the cities’ expansion of bicycle trails and bicycle paths on city streets in Chicago. As the popularity of the sport continues to grow, bicycle riders need to remember that their safety is not guaranteed as long as they share the road with cars and trucks. Despite the fact that more laws and considerations are given to protecting bicyclists on the road, they are still extremely susceptible to injury compared to the drivers of motor vehicles on the road.
At Pilsen Law Center, our bicycle accident lawyers are prepared to give strong, powerful representation to those with bike injury claims, including cases involving the following circumstances:
- Struck by a car, truck, bus, taxi, or other vehicle
- Doored by a car or Chicago Taxi
- Injured as a result of a pot hole, street plate, man hole cover, or other street hardware defects
- Injured as a result of blocked or obstructed bicycle lane
- Injured while working as a bicycle courier
- Injured while working as a delivery person
- Injured while visiting Chicago and involved in a crash
- Any other bicycle or cycle related accident, crash, or injury
Many bicyclists are seriously injured because of the carelessness of other drivers on the road who fail to pay attention or drive recklessly. Although there is very little reliable data on the exact percentages of who is more often at fault, most information points to motor vehicles being at fault at least 50% of the time. In some cases, there might be more than one individual contributing to the accident, making figuring out who is financially responsible even more opaque. Clearly, when cars or different sorts of vehicles hit bicyclists, there is little room for forgiveness and most bicyclists hit by motor vehicles sustain serious or fatal injuries.
