Pursue Compensation with an Experienced & Compassionate Legal Team
Bicycling is one of the most popular methods of transportation available to Illinois residents. In fact, due to aggressive public policies, the number of bicycle commuters in the Chicagoland area alone has nearly doubled since early 2002. However, cyclists must always be on guard when it comes to reckless and negligent motor vehicle drivers. Each year, there are nearly 500,000 bicycle accident-related injuries reported in the United States. Because bicycles lack built-in safety features, accident victims frequently sustain severe and even catastrophic injuries.

Pursuing Compensation After a Bicycle Accident
In the last 20 years, lawmakers and awareness groups have been tirelessly advocating for the rights and safety of bicyclists. Despite their combined efforts, there hasn't been a noticeable decrease in the annual number of accident injuries.
Bicycle accidents are commonly caused by these dangerous driving behaviors:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Reckless driving
- Failing to yield
A single accident can result in an injury that irreparably impacts a cyclist's personal life, career, and general standard of living. Fortunately, injured cyclists can pursue economic and non-economic damages that account for their medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of earning potential.
In Illinois, injured cyclists have 2 years to file their personal injury claims. However, it's imperative that you seek legal representation as soon as possible. Once the statute of limitations passes, the court may refuse to hear your case. By taking action today, your legal team has time to thoroughly investigate the case and determine a negligent party.
