Female Bicyclist Suffers Ruptured Spleen Following Crash With Van On Milwaukee Avenue
A female bicyclist suffered a ruptured spleen after being struck by a 2005 Ford Econoline van at the intersection of North Milwaukee Avenue and North Ogden Avenue in Chicago on August 22nd. The crash occurred at around 8:00 a.m. as the 24 year old cyclist was on her way to work. The bicyclist was riding southbound in the bike lane on Milwaukee when she was suddenly "t-boned" by the left turning van. Both vehicles had a green light, but under Illinois law the straight-ahead cyclist had the right of way at the time of the crash. Immediately following the crash she was taken to Rush University Medical Center via ambulance. She remains in treatment. Our law firm is representing the bicyclist.
