Bicycle Accident Lawyers In the Community
Our attorneys help injured bicyclists in Chicago and throughout Illinois
The bicycle accident attorneys at Keating Law Offices, P.C. are committed to helping the injured get justice after being hurt by the negligence of another. We focus on building strong cases that insurance companies must take seriously. Since our founding in 2008, we have helped hundreds of injured bicyclists recover the financial compensation they deserve.
We aren’t just attorneys, however. We are also bicyclists. We know what’s it like to ride a bike through busy traffic and share the road with drivers who see bicycles as a nuisance. Promoting the safe enjoyment of bicycling is important to us. That is why we are involved with many different bicycling events in the community.
Here are some of the bicycling and advocacy events Keating Law Offices has sponsored:
- Active Transportation Alliance’s Bike To Work Challenge
- Active Transportation Alliance’s Bike The Drive
- Bike Lane Uprising’s Day of Service
- Chicago Cyclocross Cup
- Dennis Jurs Memorial Race
- Intelligentsia Cup
- Glencoe Grand Prix
- Ride Illinois’ Grand Illinois Trail and Parks Bike Tour
- Chicago Family Bike Fest
We are also actively involved in bicycle-related civic organizations throughout the area. Attorney Michael Keating has published articles about bike safety in legal journals, and often speaks on bicycle law at legal seminars. He has been interviewed by major networks on issues related to bicycle law.
The lawyers injured bicyclists can count on
Our attorneys put a lot of miles on our own bicycles. We know how vulnerable bicyclists can be on the road. Drivers of cars and trucks often overlook bicycles or treat them as little more than a nuisance. They cut bicyclists off or fail to look for any bicycles that are coming before making a turn. It only takes one negligent driver that leaves a bicyclist hurt.
We know the impact a bicycle crash can have on injured bicyclists and their families. The injured bicyclist is left unable to take part in their usual activities. Medical expenses can become overwhelming in a very short time. Injuries often result in a bicyclist being unable to work, resulting in a loss of income.
If you were injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver, you deserve financial compensation. Recovering compensation after a bicycle accident can be complicated. Negligent drivers do not accept responsibility and deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies try to pay you as little as possible.
Lawyers with the experience that gets results
That is why you need an experienced bicycle accident attorney on your side. We have the legal knowledge and the experience needed to fight back against insurance companies to get results. We also know firsthand what it’s like to be bicyclist on the streets of Chicago and other communities throughout Illinois.
Our legal team investigates your crash to get the facts about what happened. We gather evidence, review documentation, such as accident reports and medical records, and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts. We put together a strong case that the insurance companies can’t ignore.
We also determine the total damages you have suffered and demand compensation. When insurance companies see that we are prepared and ready to fight, they often agree to talk about a settlement. Any resolution of your case must be one that meets your needs. If they won’t settle, we will be ready to fight for you in court.
