Chicago is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the United States. Chicago has over 140 miles of on-street bike lanes and 12,000 bike racks. However, cycling continues to present countless hazards and obstacles which result in many bicycle accidents every year.
A particular danger in Chicago is "dooring" where drivers open their car doors into the path of an oncoming cyclist, striking them without warning or not allowing enough time to start. If you have been injured while riding your bike, please contact McCready, Garcia & leet at (773) 779-9885.
