Peoria Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Rely on Our 30+ Years of Legal Experience

While bicycling is a popular method of transportation for many Illinois residents, it is, unfortunately, not always the safest travel option. Each year, accidents involving bicyclists result in over 500,00 injuries and nearly 1,000 tragic fatalities. These accident injuries tend to be severe because bicycles lack built-in safety features. However, this acknowledgement doesn’t change the fact that most of these accidents are preventable and caused by the negligent actions of a careless driver.

The physical and financial repercussions of an accident injury can alter a victim’s life forever. If you’ve been injured by the negligent actions of another person, it’s imperative that you pursue compensation that can facilitate your overall recovery. At Schierer & Ritchie, LLC, our Peoria bicycle accident lawyers understand that the outcome of a personal injury case can determine the quality of a claimant’s future. For this reason, we aren’t afraid to litigate for your best interests in court and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. Our priority is to help you recover the damages your case deserves.

We’re available 24/7! Contact our Peoria bicycle accident attorneys at (309) 518-1007 to discover your legal options.

Determining Liability & Pursing Compensation

Even as awareness groups work tirelessly to promote new safety strategies and campaigns, there hasn’t been a decrease in the annual number of bicycling injuries and fatalities. Cars and trucks have always been the greatest threats to bicyclists. Because bicyclists are only protected by helmets and bright protective gear, a driver’s single moment of carelessness can lead to an injury that impacts a cyclist’s social life, career, and general financial situation.

Bicycle accidents are often caused by the following negligent driving habits:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Reckless driving
  • Failing to yield

If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, it’s imperative that you seek legal representation as soon as possible. In Illinois, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is 2 years. After that time passes, the court may refuse to hear your case. Because the success of your lawsuit hinges on taking immediate legal action, contact our Peoria bicycle accident lawyers today. We can assist you by compiling essential evidence, negotiating with insurance companies, and recovering beneficial damages on your behalf.

You may be awarded the following damages in a successful case:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
