A 30 year old woman suffered injuries to her wrists, shoulder and head after being doored while riding her bicycle in Chicago's Bridgeport neighborhood on May 9th. Our law firm is representing her. The incident occurred at around 8:20 p.m. as the woman rode her bicycle northbound along the 2900 block of South Throop Street. Pedaling at modest speed, with a flashing light on the front of her bike, she had no warning that the door of a Chrysler PT Cruiser parked on the right side of the street was about to be thrown open in her path. The collision threw her from the bicycle, causing her injures. She had been wearing a helmet.
After the incident she was taken via ambulance to the University of Illinois Chicago Medical Center. She continues to treat for her injuries.
