Our firm has been retained to represent a 24 year old man who was struck by a motor vehicle while riding his bicycle at the intersection of North Halstead Street and West Webster Avenue in Chicago early on the morning of October 3rd. Prior to the crash, the bicyclist was traveling west bound on Webster. The motorist was traveling east bound. Upon reaching the intersection the cyclist signaled his intent to turn left onto south bound Halstead. As he approached the center of the intersection he saw the motor vehicle approaching and slowed to allow it to pass. The vehicle did not signal an intent to turn. However, when it reached the middle of the intersection the vehicle suddenly executed a left turn, crashing into the man on his bike. The bicycle's front light was on at the time.
Though he was wearing a helmet, the bicyclist was knocked unconscious by the impact. He awoke many hours later at Illinois Masonic Medical Center. More than two months following the crash, he continues to suffer effects from the incident. We are aggressively pursuing a claim against the driver.
