Chicago Bicycle Commuter Injured By SUV Along Milwaukee Avenue To Be Compensated

A Chicago bicycle commuter will be compensated for injuries he received when an SUV pulled in front of him as he rode in the bike lane along Milwaukee Avenue, near the intersection with Ogden Avenue, in August.  A settlement agreement was reached yesterday between the bicyclist, whom we represent, and the driver.  The cyclist sustained a facial laceration and a neck injury when the vehicle abruptly pulled out of a drug store parking lot and into the dedicated bike lane.  The bicyclist immediately grabbed for his brakes but could not avoid cashing into the side of the SUV.  The incident occurred at around 7:30 p.m.  The cyclist was riding home from his office in the Loop.
