Chicago Bicycle Accident Attorney

Chicago Bicycle Accident Attorney

Riding a bike is a fun way to keep fit and a cost-effective, environmentally friendly form of transportation. While Chicago has made strides in accommodating growing numbers of cyclists, the fact is that collisions with motor vehicles continue to put riders in jeopardy. At Arami Law Office, our Chicago bicycle accident attorneys represent victims in these cases. We provide the professional, experienced legal representation needed to hold reckless drivers accountable, so you can get the compensation you need to recover.   

Defending Your Against Bike Accidents and Injuries

Crash data from the Illinois Department of Transportation (DOT) indicates that close to 2,400 bicyclists were injured as the result of collisions involving motor vehicles in 2017. As riders have little in the way to protect them in these accidents, the injuries they suffer can end up being severe. At Arami Law Office, we provide the trusted legal guidance you need to hold at-fault drivers accountable when you suffer the following types of serious bike injuries:

  • Injuries to the soft tissue such as strains, sprains, and tears;
  • Severe cuts, lacerations, and burns;
  • Broken bones and dislocated joints;
  • Facial and dental injuries;
  • Abdominal injuries, causing damage to bodily organs;
  • Back and neck injuries, such as whiplash and herniated discs;
  • Head injuries, resulting in a concussion and traumatic brain injuries (TBI);
  • Spinal cord injuries, resulting in paralysis.

We Hold At-Fault Drivers Accountable

While there are steps you can take to protect yourself when riding a bike, such as wearing a helmet and reflective clothing, you cannot control the behaviors of others on the road. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reckless driving on the part of passing motorists is often responsible when bicycle injuries do occur. Our experienced Chicago bicycle accident attorneys help you hold at-fault drivers accountable for negligent behavior such as the following:

  • Speeding or going too fast for weather conditions;
  • Disregarding traffic signs and signals;
  • Aggressive driving, such as tailgating and improper passing;
  • Distracted driving, such as using cell phones or texting;
  • Driving while tired or falling asleep while driving;
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

When another driver is responsible for injuries you suffer in a bicycle accident, Arami Law Offices can help you get the compensation you need to recover, either through an insurance claim or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in court.
