Crash support for bicyclists and pedestrians
The Active Transportation Alliance has launched a crash support group and hotline to help people who have been involved in a bicycle or pedestrian crash and who need information or support. The crash support group meetings are facilitated by a trained professional and are free and confidential. The hotline is available 24 hours a day and will help crash victims answer questions like “What do I do next?,” “How do I find a lawyer?,” and “What are my rights?” The hotline number is 312-869-HELP (4357). This number should not replace calling 9-1-1 when you are involved in a crash, or sustain injuries in a crash that require medical attention.
