Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

Chicago Bike Accident Attorneys - Orzoff Law Offices
Chicago Bike and Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Chicago is crowded with pedestrian traffic, but we tend to think the city is too busy for bikes. That is not the case. There are thousands of people riding bikes in the Chicago metro area every day. Every year, hundreds of bikers suffer serious injury and a few die from bike accidents.

  • A bike messenger is hit by a car while on the job
  • A child is run over on his big wheel trike by a truck backing out of a driveway
  • A university student is knocked off her bike by a truck passing too close
  • A biker falls because of debris on the road outside a construction site

Bikers and pedestrians can seek financial compensation for their injuries from the insurance company of the driver. But what if it was a hit and run accident? What if the driver does not have car insurance or does not carry enough coverage to cover their medical bills?

At the Orzoff Law Offices in Northbrook, Illinois, we work with injured pedestrians and injured bikers, as well as with the family members of those who died in fatal bike or pedestrian accidents. Since 1966, we have been helping clients achieve financial recovery with personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims. Contact our office to schedule a free initial consultation.

Getting the Compensation You Need

Our injury lawyers look into every potential source of compensation. If the car or truck driver was uninsured or underinsured, we look to see if the biker or pedestrian is covered by a family auto insurance policy which would provide uninsured or underinsured benefits.

Proving Fault

It’s unfortunate, but police and drivers often assume that the bicyclist was at fault in bicycle-car accidents. The police may or may not have done a very thorough investigation and usually the walker or biker is so injured they do not have a clear memory of the accident. That is when the investigative skills of an experienced lawyer become critical.

If you are unsure who was at fault, talk to an attorney so we can try to reconstruct the accident to see if there is responsibility on the part of the driver. We have experience reconstructing these types of accidents. We will not let our clients get less than they deserve: see our client success stories.
