Chicago Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Cook County Lawyers Serving Those Injured in Bicycle Accidents
The amount of people using bicycles as their primary mode of transportation has increased significantly for several years. Unfortunately, the increase in bicycle usage on Chicago roadways has been met with a corresponding spike in bicycle accidents. Every year, approximately 50,000 people are injured in the United States as the result of accidents involving bicycles and motor vehicles. Hundreds more are killed. In fact, “dooring accidents” have been on the rise at alarming rates in the City of Chicago.
At Pullano Law Offices, we believe that bicycle accidents are avoidable when drivers of cars and trucks realize they do not own the roadways and use proper care to look for bicycle riders. When accidents happen, we also believe that those who have been injured deserve full justice for their losses. Our attorneys know how to get results and will work tirelessly in the pursuit of maximum compensation.
For more than 25 years, Attorney Richard L. Pullano has dedicated his practice to the service of personal injury victims. As a former Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney, Mr. Pullano brings a vast working knowledge of the law and renowned advocacy skills to each and every case he handles. Bicycle accident victims throughout the region have placed their trust in our firm over the years, a trust that our attorneys continually strive to uphold. If you have been injured in a bike accident, our attorneys are ready to fight for you.

Due to their relatively small size and their constant proximity to the flow of traffic, riding bicycles can be extremely dangerous. Many people, however, rely on them as a means of transportation in addition to their use for recreational and exercise-related benefits. Unfortunately, when accidents occur, they are frequently very serious, and riders commonly suffer injuries, which include:
- Severe head trauma and brain injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis;
- Severed limbs, or injuries resulting in amputation;
- Permanent nerve damage; and
- Broken bones.
