Bicycle Accidents Archives

Chicago bicycle accidents can be devastating for families

For bicycling enthusiasts, there is a wide range of benefits that come from their chosen form of transportation. Biking reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Bikers are engaging in aerobic exercise that helps keep their body and heart in better shape. They can sometimes commute more quickly and directly than those traveling in cars, public transportation or taxis. For many, biking is simply an enjoyable activity.

Chicago Bike Safety A Serious Issue

A growing number of people are using bicycles as a primary mode of transportation in U.S. cities. Chicago is aware of the trend and is looking to create a more bike-friendly infrastructure designed to reduce the number of deadly interactions between cars and bicycles. While changes can be made to make biking in Chicago safer, it is important for drivers and riders alike to be prepared to make considerations geared toward a safer, more easily navigable place to live and work.

"Dooring" Bicycle Accidents Now Being Recorded in Illinois

"Dooring" accidents, or getting "doored," are terms that cyclists coined for bicycle accidents occurring when a parked motorist carelessly opens their car door into the bike lane, making contact with the cyclist or the bicycle itself. Such accidents are common in crowded, bike-heavy metros such as Chicago.
