Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Elgin, Il
Those who bicycle around the beautiful City of Chicago know the environmental and physical benefits of foregoing a car engine. They also know all too well the dangers of foregoing a car’s protection. As with many other dangers, bicycling hazards only increase during the windy, snowy winter months when Chicago hosts some of the nation’s most intensely cold weather. Still, many Chicagoans use their bicycles year-round, including during the months of snow-covered roads and icy bridges. If you are one of the brave, fearless riders who isn’t deterred by this weather or the cars on the road, make sure to be safe. If, however, you are injured in a wreck, reach out to Willens & Baez today for help recovering the compensation you deserve.
Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents
Unlike car wrecks, bicycle accidents are much more likely to result in catastrophic injuries, due to the fact that the bicyclists have no protection from the elements. Those involved in bicycle accidents may sustain broken bones, muscle sprains and strains, traumatic brain injuries, and road rash from scraping along the road. In some cases, a bicyclist may even sustain paralysis. Sadly, these wrecks often also lead to death.
Fortunately, an injured bicyclist, or the family of a bicyclist who was killed in a wreck, can speak with a personal injury attorney for help recovering due compensation to cover the costs of medical bills, rehabilitation costs, emotional damage, and more. The attorneys at Willens & Baez are prepared to help you through this time.
