Niles, IL - Man Hospitalized After Hit-and-Run Bicycle Crash on Milwaukee Ave at Dempster St

Niles, IL (October 20, 2022) – On Wednesday evening in the north suburbs, a hit-and-run accident left a biker gravely wounded, according to police.

The incident occurred just after 7:50 p.m. in the vicinity of Milwaukee Avenue and Dempster Street in Niles, according to police.

Police discovered after an initial investigation that he was crossing Milwaukee going west in a crosswalk when he was struck by a car turning right from westbound Dempster into northbound Milwaukee.

According to authorities, the biker was sent to a local hospital with significant but non-life-threatening injuries.

The implicated car, described as a white sedan, did not stop.

While police conducted their investigation, northbound Milwaukee and westbound Dempster were blocked for over three hours.

Witnesses were asked to contact the Niles Police Investigations Bureau if they had any information about the collision.

Our thoughts and best wishes for a speedy recovery are with the injured victim.

Bicycle Crashes & Injuries Around Chicago

City officials in Chicago have recognized a serious problem with the city’s current rate of bicycle accidents. State data shows that between 2012 and 2019, there were an average of six motorcycle deaths in Chicago per year. Moreover, there has been an uptick in deadly accidents.

Bicyclists involved in car accidents often suffer life-threatening injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, paralysis, and even death. Despite prompt medical intervention like surgery or intensive treatment, some patients may not feel better for weeks or months.

Sadly, many patients do not make it through their ordeals. A person’s loved ones bear a heavy emotional and financial weight after their untimely death in an accident.

If you or a loved one were hurt in a bicycle accident that was someone else’s fault, you might take legal action in a variety of different ways. If you or a loved one has been injured in an avoidable Chicago vehicle accident, you should immediately speak with an attorney.

An individual’s executor, who is usually a close family, may file a wrongful death claim in Illinois. If a person’s death was the result of reckless or illegal behavior, a wrongful death case may be filed in Illinois. Those who put their faith in the plaintiff will be compensated if they prevail.

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is typically two years from the date of death, making it critical for family members and other representatives to seek legal counsel as soon as possible following a terrible incident.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
