Need an Experienced Chicago Bicycle Accident Attorney?

bicycle-accident-injury-attorney-chicagoTo begin with, make sure you get medical treatment after any bicycle injury. Many cyclists don’t, perhaps feeling better than they are due to the adrenaline coursing through their system. Some symptoms like traumatic brain injury (TBI), may reveal themselves only days or weeks after an accident. Get checked by a medical professional and get that visit documented. With this important point established, let’s turn to the state of bicycle injuries in Chicagoland.

For many in Chicago, bicycling is a preferred way of traveling. Chicago hosts over 200 miles of bike lanes and there are plans to increase these lanes by 445 miles by 2020. Even with lanes dedicated to bicyclists, accidents involving vehicles will still occur. When a car hits your bike, damage to the car is minor, while the damage to your bike and your body will be severe. Cars come equipped with seat belts and airbags. The only airbag you have as a cyclist is the space between you and the ground. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2012 there were 726 bike accidents resulting in death.

Bicycle Accident Facts

  • Dooring is illegal in Chicago. If a driver opens their door causing an accident, the motorist is liable.
  • Unobservant driver. If a driver is unfocused, forgot to look both ways, and hits you, they are liable for damages to you and your bike.
  • A motorist failed to yield. When you are cycling you have the right of way over merging vehicles.
  • Distracted Drivers. Motorists preoccupied with their cell phones are a threat to anyone in their vicinity. If a driver is on their phone and hits you, they will be liable for damages and suffering.
  • Driver inattention. Many accidents are caused when a motorist pulls out in front of a cyclist. You can claim compensation.

Chicago’s Most Dangerous Roads For Cyclists

Chicago has repeatedly been named one of the best US cities for cyclists. Biking is such a big part of our culture that cyclist safety is consistently prioritized by our transportation agencies. Yet bike crashes continue to plague the metro. NHTSA data shows us that Chicago pedestrian and cyclist fatalities still occur at a steady rate, accounting for 4.1 percent of all traffic deaths in 2016 and 2017. Statewide, the cyclist fatality rate has actually increased, from 1.8 percent in 2016 to 2.4 percent in 2017.

There are certain roads in the area that are notorious for bike accidents. A recent survey named Milwaukee Avenue, between North Avenue and Division Street, as the most dangerous Chicago road for bike riders. This confirms an earlier five-year study by the Chicago Department of Transportation, which lists the following streets with the most bike accidents per mile:

  • Milwaukee, from North to Division – 70.1 crashes per mile
  • Clark, from Racine to Fullerton – 48.6 crashes per mile
  • Milwaukee, from Fullerton to Armitage – 48.1 crashes per mile
  • Halsted, from Diversey to North – 29.9 crashes per mile
  • Damen, from North to Chicago – 27.8 crashes per mile.

The CDOT also reports that the majority of the crashes occurred at intersections, particularly on Halsted, Fullerton, and Milwaukee Avenues. For Chicagoans, this comes as no surprise, as these are complex intersections where thousands of cyclists pass every day.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that bicyclists invite accidents. The CDOT report reveals that more than 40 percent of injury and fatal bike crashes involved a car driver that failed to yield.

For bike riders in Chicagoland, it pays to take note of the city’s dangerous intersections when planning a bike route. Further, practice extra caution when sharing the road with other motorists in this bustling metro.

Bike-sharing And Dockless Bikes: Who Is Liable In An Accident?

The Divvy Bike-share program, run by the CDOT, is a popular system of bike rentals in Chicago. In 2018, bicyclists also welcomed the city’s pilot program for dockless bikes, which can be rented without the need for docking stations. But while these bike-renting models are convenient and affordable, there have been concerns as to the safety of these systems and how victims can make a claim when a bike-share accident happens.

In general, Divvy bikes and dockless bikes are still covered by Chicago accident laws. If a motorist caused a collision with any of these bikes, the injured rider may make a claim against the at-fault motorist. If it was a bike rider that caused a crash by riding on the wrong lane, for instance, that rider would be held liable. If a bicycle is found to be inherently defective and accident-prone, a case could be brought against the manufacturer or distributor.

There could be additional challenges for victims of bike-sharing accidents, especially if they are claiming against a bike-share operator. For one, in case of a Divvy accident, it may be difficult to hold the government accountable for an injurious bike or bike station. States and city governments have considerable tort immunity, which means the City of Chicago may be exempt from injury claims arising from Divvy crashes.

Further, the City’s contract with its Divvy private partner (a company called Motivate, formerly Alta Bicycle Share) indemnifies the City for bike-related injury losses. If an injured party decides to sue Divvy, the City Hall may likely be off the hook, leaving the plaintiff to deal only with the private contractor.

This is an uphill climb, as private bike-share operators are well-equipped with insurance policies and legal defense teams. Their very first layer of defense could be as simple as Divvy’s waiver form, which disclaims their responsibility for accidents.

This is true with dockless bike rental companies as well. Vendors like LimeBike, Pace, and Jump have comprehensive Terms of Use that users have to agree to before they can ride. Bike-share crash victims can expect a company will use this user agreement as well as other legalities to avoid liability in the accident.

But despite these facts, it is still possible to pursue a successful claim for your bike-share injury. Again, accident laws still very much apply, so you can hold the at-fault party liable. If a powerful bike rental company or government entity is involved, you’ll want to consult an experienced and up-to-date accident attorney for your best chance of winning.

Child Bicycle Accident Injuries in Chicago

While cycling is a favorite activity of many children here in Chicago, there are risks parents and children should be aware of.

Cycling is an activity that promotes health and helps develop a child’s gross motor skills. Learning to ride a bicycle is a great milestone in a child’s life and gives them the joy of having a level of independence. Cycling, though, comes with its own inherent risks, and it is important for parents and children to recognize these risks. According to the Center for Disease Control, about 59 percent of individuals who reported to emergency rooms for treatment of bicycle injuries were children under the age of 15 years. Every year, close to 300,000 child bicycle injuries is reported.

Motor Vehicle-Bicycle Accidents Involving Children

Most reported injuries from a child falling from the bicycle. However, accidents and injuries involving motor vehicles and bicycles are not uncommon. When a motor vehicle hits a kid riding a bicycle, the injuries that occur are often severe. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), children under the age of 14 years account for almost 18 percent of motor vehicle-bicycle accident crashes. These types of accidents cause over 9,000 injuries and about 55 deaths each year.

In the case of an accident involving a child bicycle rider and motor vehicle, liability is not always easy to establish. Children may not always know the traffic rules and may also disobey them; however, motor vehicle drivers are also responsible to watch out for bicyclists or pedestrians they are sharing the road with. Determining whether the bicyclist or the motor vehicle driver is at fault can become complicated. Consult an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer from Willens Injury Law Offices.

Common Injuries Caused by Child Bicycle Accidents

While a bicycle accident may cause a wide variety of injuries, the most serious injuries are brain injuries. A properly fitting helmet is essential for any child. Resist the temptation to get a cheap helmet in a department store and instead buy one from an established bicycle shop whose staff rides and who knows which helmet will be right for your child and can fit it. In addition to brain injuries, the other more serious types of injuries that a child can suffer in a bicycle accident are broken bones and lacerations.

Traumatic brain injuries are a common cause of disability and death among children, according to the Brain Injury Association. Every year, more than a million children suffer some type of brain injury. One of the biggest problems involving brain injuries is that the symptoms are not always immediately felt, taking hours and even days for the symptoms to present themselves. Parents may feel that their child has recovered from a head injury, but the effect of the brain injury may be felt even years later. A child who suffers a brain injury in a bicycle accident may face cognitive difficulties or lower IQ, behavioral difficulties caused by damage to the frontal cortex, emotional problems, and memory and attention problems.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

I’m rarely compelled to leave a review for anyone but I felt I needed to show my gratitude.From the first time I spoke with Matt Willens on the phone I actually felt like he was there for me, looking after my best interests and not his own. That’s rare in my experience.Matt is an absolute pro and I wouldn’t think to call or recommend anyone else if I or a loved one were injured in the future. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

After I was injured, and after researching Chicago's best law firms, I found Willens Law and read their reviews. After meeting Matt, I retained their services, along with the special efforts of his Partner, David Baez.They handled my case in a professional, efficient manner, while keeping me regularly informed. We worked incredibly well together, and won a very nice settlement. You would be foolish not to consider Willens Law for your Counsel, as I did. I highly recommend them!Ed Dybas

Working with Willens Law was a pleasure. They were responsive and extremely pleasant whenever I had questions or concerns. In my case, I personally took a little longer than I should have to start the process on my end, but David was able to pickup on my delay and process my personal injury case in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Willens Law and David when looking for an attorney to represent you in a case.

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
