Injured while riding a bike?

Spring is fast approaching, and that means more cyclists will soon be out on Illinois roads. Will you or any of your loved ones be among them? If you are an avid cyclist, you know just how dangerous the sport can be. Too many drivers fail to share the road as they should, and as a result, numerous cyclists end up hurt -- or worse. If you or a loved one are injured while riding a bike, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.

Most cyclists have had close calls while trying to share the road with motorists. They encounter drivers who fail to yield the right of way, and others who simply fail to see them. It can make riding a bike a nerve-racking experience.

When a cyclist is hit by a car or truck and survives the incident, the losses he or she may face can be extensive. The physical injuries can be difficult to overcome, and there are no guarantees of a full recovery. The emotional damages can certainly take a toll, as can the financial losses. There is just no easy way to move forward after this type of incident.

Illinois residents who have been injured while riding a bike, if those injuries were the result of another person's negligence, may take legal action to seek compensation for their losses. If this is something you are interested in doing, legal counsel can review the details of your case and help you decide the best way to proceed. To learn more about bicycle accidents, compensation available to accident victims, and how an experienced can be of assistance to you, please take a moment and visit our firm's website.
