We represent skateboarders, too

Result: $11,500

A 29 year old man was struck by a taxi cab while riding his skateboard through the intersection of Lake Street and North Clinton Street in Chicago’s Loop. He was skating with his girlfriend to a movie theater.

As he skated off of the sidewalk to cross the street with the light in his favor a right turning taxi cab crashed into him. The driver did not stop immediately, and carried the man down the street on the hood of his vehicle before halting. Our client sustained a hip pointer and knee sprain from the collision, incurring about $5,300 in medical bills.
