Case Value

Paramedic holding injured man after a bicycle accident.We received a call from a client who was riding a bike in Naperville. She was injured while riding her bike due to the negligence of another party. She was asking us how we would determine the value of that claim. We told her that it all depends upon the liability of the defendant, the nature and the extent of her injuries, the medical bills it incurred, the lost wages incurred, loss of a normal life, and pain and suffering. Depending upon all of those factors, we will then come up with an evaluation to maximize her recovery.

Case Timeline

One of our clients who was injured in a bicycle accident in Naperville gave us a call the other night and was wondering how long her case would take to resolve. We told her that it all depends upon the complexity of the case. For the most part, what we look at are the liability of the defendant, the nature and the extent of the injuries, any potential medical bills, any lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of a normal life. Depending upon those individual factors, it will take a certain amount of time for the case to go from start to finish. In general, cases of this nature usually take about nine months to two and a half years to resolve.

Common Mistakes After a Bicycle Accident

We were contacted last night by a person who had been injured in a bicycle accident in Naperville. He was asking us whether or not he did anything wrong and whether or not there are common mistakes that persons who are involved in bicycle accidents make. We said the most important thing you can do is document what occurred. Unlike a motor vehicle collision, sometimes persons who were on bikes who were involved in accidents with motor vehicles don’t call the police. They absolutely should. You want to make sure that everything is documented. You want to make sure that everything is reported to the authorities. This way, we have written proof of what occurred, how it occurred, and when it occurred.
