Chicago Divvy Bike Accident Lawyers
Bike rental programs, such as Divvy bikes, put inexperienced riders on busy Chicago streets — often without a helmet or safe riding instructions. In many cases, the result is an injured bike rider.
At the law firm of Trapp & Geller our lawyers represent people who have been injured in bike accidents, including those involving Divvy bikes. If you or a loved one were injured in a bicycle accident, we offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and answer your questions.
Liability in Divvy Bike Accidents — Who Will Pay?
If you were injured as the result of another party’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for the harm you have suffered, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Examples of negligence in Divvy bike accidents include:
- Failure of Divvy to provide you a helmet or safe riding instructions
- Dooring (a car driver opening a door in your path)
- A driver clipping or striking you when passing you in a bike lane
- Failure of a car to yield to you when you have the right of way at an intersection
- Accidents caused by defective road conditions
As a bike rider, you have the same right to be on the road as people in four-wheeled vehicles. You have a responsibility to ride in the same direction as other traffic and to stay as far to the right side of the roadway, except when passing or turning left. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you can still recover compensation, as long as you were less than 50% at fault.
Our lawyers will investigate the circumstances of your accident and work to hold all negligent parties accountable.
