Plainfield Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Plainfield Bicycle Accident Attorney

Will County Personal Injury Lawyer for Broken Bones and Head Trauma

As a mode of transportation, exercise, or leisure, riding a bicycle is a healthy, environment-friendly activity enjoyed around the world. Unfortunately, it can also be extremely dangerous due to the hazards presented by many car and truck drivers. When those behind the wheel make a mistake around a bicycle on the road, it is usually the rider who suffers the consequences. At Flaherty Law, LLC, we are committed to helping injured bike riders seek the compensation they deserve after a bicycle accident and working closely with them to put their lives back on track.

Bicycle Accident Attorney Serving Will County

Each year, more than 700 bicyclists are killed on roadways around the United States. An estimated 50,000 more are injured, a large number of them children, representing total injury costs of more than $4 billion per year. The majority of serious bicycle accidents occur in cities and metropolitan areas similar to Chicago.

The relatively low profile of a bicycle and rider often make them difficult to see, but in many cases, drivers are simply not paying attention or sharing the road properly. When an accident occurs, a bicycle rider is often severely hurt due to the disparity in size and weight, along with the lack of structural protection. Common bike accident injuries include:

  • Head and traumatic brain injuries;
  • Neck and back injuries;
  • Spinal cord damage, including temporary or permanent paralysis;
  • Nervous system damage;
  • Broken bones and severed or amputated limbs;
  • Cuts and lacerations; and
  • Soft tissue injuries, including contusions and bruises.

Hardworking Bike Accident Advocate

Attorney Daniel Flaherty has worked with hundreds of injured accident victims in his career, including many hurt in bicycle-vehicle crashes. He is prepared to investigate the nature of your accident fully, review police reports, speak with witnesses, and examine the accident scene to determine which parties should be held liable for your injuries. With his previous experience in personal injury defense, Mr. Flaherty will not be tricked into accepting a settlement that fails to address your true needs. He knows the games that insurance companies try to play, and he will continue to fight on your behalf until you collect the compensation you need. Quick resolution is always preferable, but, sometimes, full justice takes a little more time.

At Flaherty Law, LLC, we are dedicated to helping you recover from your bicycle accident, and we intend to make the process as easy as possible for you. We will take the time to listen to you and fully understand your needs and goals, making you our top priority every step of the way.
