Keating Law Offices to Represent Hinsdale Boy Injured in Bicycle Accident

The Illinois Bicycle Lawyers at Keating Law Offices have been retained by the family of a 7 year old boy to represent for serious injuries he sustained in a motor vehicle vs. bicycle collision on May 21, 2013 in west suburban Hinsdale, Illinois.

The bicyclist was riding outside his house near a neighbor's driveway when he was struck by a Jeep. The neighborhood is well known for being home to many families with small children. Witnesses at the scene heard the engine of the Jeep accelerate just prior to impact. The road was a short cut-through street with very few houses in a residential neighborhood. The Hinsdale Police Department responded to the scene of the accident and completed a police report.

As a result of the crash, the bicyclist suffered a broken leg and other injuries. The boy underwent surgery two days after the collision to repair his femur bone. Despite these injuries the young boy has shown remarkable resiliency in dealing with his cast and limitations. Fortunately, the bicyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision and avoided sustaining serious head trauma. We look forward to representing our newest client's interests and wish him a speedy recovery.
