Settlement In Case Arising From Bicyclist Struck By Drunk Motorist
We have successfully resolved a case arising from incident that occurred in September, 2009 when our client, a former Marine, was struck from behind by a drunk driver as he rode his bicycle near the 4900 block of South California Avenue in Chicago. The violent collision threw the bicyclist from his bike, rendering him unconscious. He suffered a fractured shoulder and numerous deep scars to his head, face and arm. Thankfully, he has since healed reasonably well from his injuries. The matter resolved for the full amount of available insurance from the at fault driver, and the maximum amount from the bicyclist's own underinsured motorist coverage.
