A sport utility vehicle suddenly pulled into the bicycle lane of Milwaukee Avenue, near Ogden, and directly into the path of a cyclist on August 10th, causing a serious collision. The bicyclist was on his way home from work at about 7:30 p.m. when the SUV pulled in front of him from the CVS Pharmacy parking lot there. He grabbed for his brakes immediately upon seeing the truck but could not avoid crashing head on into the vehicle. He was wearing a helmet. Our law firm has been retained to represent the biker.
Following the crash, our client was transported via ambulance to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was treated for a serious gash to his face, as well as neck and knee injuries. His recovery is ongoing.
