Resolution Reached In Case Of Chicago Bicycle Commuter Hit From Behind

Though Chicago police officers failed to ticket her, a driver who struck and injured a bicyclist on his way to work in November has agreed to settle the civil case against her for a substantial sum.  On November 11th at 8:40 a.m., the motorist hit the 31 year old architect from behind as they both turned left from West Augusta Boulevard onto northbound North Elston Avenue.  The cyclist was on his way to work at the time.  The impact hurled him onto the hood of the car then to the ground where he suffered a fractured right wrist.  Though the Illinois Traffic Crash Report stated that the responding police officer felt the driver failed to yield the right of way and performed an improper turn, he did not ticket her.  My law firm represents the bicyclist.  He has recovered fully from his injuries.
