How does the court determine liability in a bicycle accident?

It is not uncommon for accidents involving bicycles and automobiles to result in severe injuries or even fatalities. This is mainly due to cyclists having no protection other than a helmet — which often may not be worn. Knowing the potential risks, cyclists, and also drivers, have a responsibility to be observant of all the rules related to road safety. Both cyclists and the drivers of vehicles are obliged to obey Illinois traffic laws and take reasonable care for their own safety and also the safety of other road users. A bicycle accident commonly results in substantial claims for recovery of damages; however, liability usually depends on whether negligence was involved.
