Chicago is undergoing a “bicycling renaissance” as more and more citizens are using bicycles for commuting and leisure activities. In fact, from 2000 to 2010, Chicago has seen a 150 percent increase in people using bicycles to commute to work. This has in turn caused an increase in the number of Chicago Bicycle accidents.

In Chicago, drivers are required to share the road with bicyclists, and you have the right to ride your bicycle on city streets as long as you follow the rules of the road. But automobiles often fail to give cyclists the same consideration that they give other automobiles. Some common causes of Chicago bicycle accidents include a driver’s failure to the yield right of way, the failure to see a cyclist, a driver making an improper right-hand turns in front of a cyclist and the failure to maintain a safe distance when passing a cyclist.
Bicycle accidents don’t always involve other vehicles, however. Cyclists can be injured by hazards in roadways or parking areas, particularly areas undergoing construction or repair. In those cases, you may still be able to recover damages, and the liable party would be the government body or property owner responsible for maintaining the road or premises in question.
If you or a loved one is involved in a Chicago bicycle accident, make sure you get the appropriate medical care, and file a police report immediately.
