Our attorneys help injured bicyclists in Chicago and throughout Illinois
In some cases, a bicyclist is injured because of equipment failure. A defective part on the bicycle suddenly stopped working as it should, resulting in a crash that leaves you injured. The experienced bicycle accident attorneys at Keating Law Offices, P.C. know how to hold manufacturers of defective parts accountable. The firm has extensive experience handling cases involving bicycle components that fail and break and cause injuries.
Defective parts can be very dangerous because they can stop functioning at crucial times. For example, when a bicyclist is traveling at a fast speed, down rough road conditions or on a busy road. This can cause the bicyclist to lose control and lead to a crash. Defective parts can include:
- Seat Posts
A bicycle crash can cause a wide range of injuries. These include head and neck injuries, concussions or traumatic brain injury, nerve damage, fractured collarbone, a broken or dislocated hand, wrist or arm and laceration and bruises. You may require surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication.
Lawyers who are focused on helping you recover financial compensation
In addition, a crash can have a significant financial impact on your life. Medical expenses can add up quickly. If your injury leaves you unable to work, there is less money coming in. Many bicyclists and their families find it hard to make ends meet during this difficult time.
