When bicyclists ride on the road, even when in bike lanes, vehicles often tend to ignore or overlook their rights and space. Drivers have a tough time sharing the road with bicyclists, especially in congested areas. Inattention and other issues often lead to tragic accidents.

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Drivers failing to yield the right of way
  • Poorly constructed roadways or bike lanes
  • Driver inattention or distraction
  • Drivers opening a door into bike lane traffic
  • Drivers pushing or hedging riders off the road

When collisions occur between a vehicle and bicycle, it can result in a serious accident, such as the incident where a cyclist was dragged by an SUV. You can read more about that here. With bicycles providing little to no protection, riders are usually the ones suffering injuries. From head trauma to neck and spinal cord injuries, a bicyclist may be facing long-term pain.

The good news is that our Chicago bicycle accident lawyers are here to advocate on behalf of injured bikers. If you have been hit by a negligent or reckless driver or suffered injury due to poorly constructed roadway, contact our firm today. We can carefully review your case and provide the representation you need to obtain compensation. Contact us today for the legal guidance you deserve.

I came to John Nisivaco after being in a hit and run accident as a pedestrian. It was a very tough time for me and my family. When we contacted John we felt much more at ease. The whole experience was alleviated by John and the firm. He was upfront with us and told us all of our options and possible outcomes. With the case, we were always informed about its progress in a timely manner. I’m glad we came to John because he made our experience with my injury much easier and it was settled very quickly. He also looked ahead and made sure that I would be able to handle my settlement responsibly. I would recommend John Nisivaco to anyone who is thinking about hiring a personal injury attorney.

I just want to thank you so much for helping me get through a difficult time. I trusted you completely and you didn’t let me down. You were very professional and caring. My sister is going through a similar situation with her daughter and this incident happened over 3 years ago and she has gotten nowhere. I would highly recommend Boudreau & Nisivaco. You are the best!

Thank you so much for all of your help regarding my settlement! I am extremely grateful for all of your hard work and professionalism. You always took the time to answer my questions, and we knew there were many (sorry about that)! Again, a zillion Thank You's!


A few years ago, I used the law firm of Boudreau & Nisivaco for a work related injury and I was very impressed with their services. I received status updates in the mail and phone calls on my case as it progressed. Even after the settlement, my lawyer continued to call me to ask how I was doing. I would definitely recommend the Boudreau & Nisivaco law firm.


We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for representing us in our workers’ compensation claim in the most professional, knowledgeable and compassionate manner possible. You were there through the tears, the pain, and the heartache, and for that we will be forever grateful. You will always be very special to us.
