Seeking Full Compensation For Injured Bicyclists And Their Families

As bicycling becomes a more popular leisure activity and mode of transportation, drivers should be more mindful about sharing the road with cyclists. Despite many roadways around the city of Chicago devoting space specifically for cyclists in bike lanes, it's not uncommon for a bicyclist to sustain serious, life-threatening injuries when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle.

At Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, our lawyers fight for the victims of auto-bicycle crashes. One of our experienced injury attorneys at our law firm can help you pursue the compensation you and your family need to recover from your injuries.

Negligent Drivers Cause Bicycle Accidents

Negligent drivers are often the cause of bike accidents. Although bicyclists are required to follow traffic rules, automobile drivers frequently fail to give cyclists room on the roadways and sometimes outright ignore the fact that cyclists are present. Drivers often cause accidents that seriously alter a cyclist's life by:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving while distracted, such as texting or emailing while driving
  • Using excessive speeds
  • Running a red light
  • Failing to fully stop at a stop sign
  • Failing to yield the right of way

Compensation For Severe Injuries To Cyclists

Because cyclists are not as protected as someone in a motor vehicle, they can sustain severe injuries when struck. A bicyclist may suffer:

Serious injuries resulting from a bike accident will require extensive medical care and months or years of rehabilitation. You will likely need time off work and may be facing permanent disabilities. Our experienced attorneys can help you and your family pursue your legal case to recover the damages you need.

What Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Do To Help

As bicyclists increase around the city, it is important that people understand their rights if injured by a negligent motorist. Whether you are a cyclist who uses a bike to deliver food, a commuter who rides to work or school, or someone who simply rides for exercise, you need an accident lawyer who is not afraid to stand up to insurance companies.

Soon after the bike accident happens, you may be pressured to settle your case before you really know what your injuries are really worth. We stand up for injured bicyclists, and will make sure that you have a clear picture of the value of your injury claims.
