Bicycle accidents are often life-altering events, and the journey to recovery can be long. The sheer impact involved can lead to severe injuries or even death. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., we understand the profound impact these accidents have on victims and their loved ones. Our firm is committed to providing comprehensive legal support to navigate the complexities of your case during this challenging time. With decades of experience and a track record of success, we stand ready to fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.

The Severity and Nature of Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles offer little protection in the event of a collision, making accidents particularly dangerous for cyclists. Congested roadways, distracted driving and failure to yield are just a few factors contributing to the number of bicycle accidents in Illinois. When a cyclist collides with a vehicle, the consequences can be catastrophic, leading to serious injuries or fatalities.

Common injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Internal organ damage 

These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and can result in long-term or permanent disabilities.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Negligence plays a significant role in many bicycle accidents. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Distracted or drunk driving
  • Speeding and reckless behavior
  • Inadequate passing space
  • Road defects and unsafe conditions

Understanding these causes is crucial in building a strong case for compensation.

Types of Injuries and the Path to Recovery

Cyclists involved in accidents often sustain injuries that can change the course of their lives. From head and spinal cord injuries to fractures and soft tissue damage, the physical toll can be immense. In worst-case scenarios, families may face the tragic loss of a loved one in a fatal accident. Beyond the immediate medical needs, victims may struggle with long-term rehabilitation, loss of income and emotional trauma.
