Bicycle accidents resulted in 29 deaths in 2012 in Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. Nationwide, 5,500 pedestrians and bicyclists are killed and 115,000 are injured every year in motor vehicle accidents.
Bicycle helmets help protect cyclists from some injuries. But a helmet can only do so much when a car or truck strikes a cyclist alongside a road. Often, cyclists sustain some of the most serious auto accident injuries, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis and even death, resulting often in a legitimate wrongful death claim.
