Chicago Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Representing the Victims of Illinois Bike Accidents

Biking is a popular activity in and around Chicago. People bike to work and for exercise and recreational purposes, often sharing the road with motor vehicles. When accidents occur, the consequences can be dire. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 500,000 people in the U.S. are treated in emergency departments, and more than 700 people die, each year as a result of bicycle-related injuries.

If you were injured by a car or other motor vehicle while riding a bike, you may be entitled to compensation. The Chicago bicycle accident attorneys at Cogan & Power, P.C. focus on representing the victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents, including bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents, and we will work to get you the compensation that you deserve.

Contact our office at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable Chicago bike accident lawyers. We take cases on a contingency basis, so you will not pay any fee unless we get you compensation.

Causes of Chicago Bicycle Accidents

Some of the common causes of bike accidents in Chicago include:

  • Dooring (when a motorist opens his or her car door and hits a passing bicyclist)
  • Failure of drivers to yield the right of way
  • Failure of drivers to see cyclists
  • Improper right-hand turns in front of a cyclist
  • Improperly turning left when a cyclist is approaching in the opposite direction
  • Failure of drivers to provide enough distance between vehicle and cyclist when passing the cyclist
