Transportation America, a nonprofit group that collects and processes traffic accident data, has found that Chicago is the 38th most dangerous metro area for pedestrians in the nation. Indeed as foot and bicycle traffic compete with space on our busy roadways with cars, trucks, and motorcycles, it is no wonder that numerous cyclists suffer serious personal injury or even death in accidents in or area every year.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a bicycle accident, you deserve justice. Please call 312-800-0000 today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer.
Catastrophic Personal Injury
Bicycle accidents often have two collision points for the cyclists: the car and the ground. Depending on the speed at the time of impact, these dual collision points can result in catastrophic personal injury such as:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injury
- Broken or pulverized bones
- Compound (open) fractures
Many of these injuries will result in medical expenses, an inability to work, and personal pain and suffering. Some of them will prove impossible to fully recover from.
