Bicycle Accident Lawyers Who Handle Truck Collisions
When you’ve been injured, our attorneys can help
Every day, bicyclists share the roads with trucks in Chicago and throughout Illinois. When there’s a crash, they can be left seriously injured. Recovering financial compensation after being injured in a truck collision can be complicated. The experienced bicycle accident attorneys at Keating Law Offices, P.C. can help.
Commercial trucks are much larger than bicycles and can inflict a lot of damage in a crash. These types of trucks include tractor-trailers, box trucks, delivery trucks, cargo vans, tow trucks and garbage trucks. If one of these trucks even taps a bicycle while in motion, it can lead to a very serious crash.
The types of injuries a bicyclist suffers in a truck collision can be very severe. They include head and neck injuries, nerve damage, concussions, traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones, back injuries and spinal cord injuries. Victims may require surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery can take a long time, and some are left with a permanent disability.
Lawyers who fight for the rights of injured bicyclists
If you’ve been injured in a collision with a commercial truck while on a bicycle, you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. Truck collision cases can be complex. One reason is that there can be multiple parties involved. Each party can be represented by a different insurance company and a different lawyer. Another reason is that there are not only state and local laws that apply to commercial trucks, but also federal laws.
That is why you need an experienced bicycle accident attorney fighting for you. Our lawyers know how to handle complex cases and hold negligent parties accountable. We are proud to have helped hundreds of injured bicyclists recover the financial compensation they deserve.
