Chicago Bike Riders Increase Along With Bike Accidents

Finding parking in the city of Chicago can be a grueling task; paying for parking can be much worse. As a result, hundreds of commuters resort to alternate forms of transportation. One of the most popular modes of transportation for Chicagoans is the bicycle. Its popularity has increased rapidly over the last few years, leading to the creation of several riding groups and events such as a monthly Critical Mass. Bike riding although affordable and convenient, can prove extremely perilous. This is especially true for riders in the downtown area. The streets of Chicago’s downtown are often filled with the commotion of exasperated taxicab drivers, congested avenue lanes, and halted city buses. In short, a recipe for danger. Weaving through the chaos of the city poses great risk for personal injury and danger. It is a sad truth, but bike riders often don’t stand much of a chance against damage done by motor vehicles. Alas, despite the creation of designated bike lanes and traffic signals, bike accidents continue to occur on a daily basis. If you or a loved one has suffered injury as a result of a bike accident, it is imperative that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at The Horwitz Law Group at (312) 641-9200.
