Chicago is one of the best cities in the United States for bike riding. The city offers over a hundred miles of bicycle lanes and paths, and the lakefront attracts plenty of cyclists during the spring and summer months. Biking is extremely popular, thanks to its health and money-saving benefits.
Always do a basic safety check prior to riding your bike. Make sure your tires are properly inflated, brakes are in working order, and all gears and chains are operating smoothly. When riding, wear a helmet, as well as clothing that will make it easier for motorists to see you.
Unfortunately, with so many automobiles and bikers sharing the road, accidents are bound to happen. It isn’t always easy for drivers to see cyclists – and bikes don’t stand much of a chance against larger vehicles. Drivers can easily get distracted or go on autopilot, which is extremely dangerous. Potholes and slippery conditions can also contribute to accidents. Getting hit by a car can cause serious injuries ranging from broken bones to paralysis, or even death.
If you’ve been involved in a bike accident, the sooner you can have someone help you through the legal process, the better. The stress of injuries and resulting medical bills can mount quickly. Having an experienced Chicago bicycle accident lawyer on your side can help ease the strain.
