We have been retained to represent a cyclist who was seriously injured when he was struck from behind by a vehicle along the 4900 block of South California Avenue in Chicago on September 12th. Our client, a former United States Marine, was rushed from the scene unconscious via ambulance to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was diagnosed with a concussion, a fractured shoulder, and deep gouges in this head, face, arm and leg requiring surgical closure. He continues to work toward recovery, but he is expected to have some permanent scarring and disfigurement.
The incident took place at around 5:30 p.m. The bicyclist was on this way home from work at the time we was struck. Our firm is initiating a full investigation of this matter, and is looking into allegations that the driver of the vehicle was intoxicated at the time of the incident.
