Firm News

November 2016
Bekkerman Law Offices is proud to announce that a $2,250,000.00 settlement has been reached in The Circuit Court of Cook County on behalf of a 46 year old man who sustained significant injuries to his right knee following a bicycle accident in June of 2014. The case was settled on the eve of trial by Gerald Bekkerman and Jennifer Bekkerman of Bekkerman Law Offices. The lawsuit stemmed from a bike crash on Damen and Chicago Avenue in which the Plaintiff, a 46 year old musician, was riding in a bike lane on his way to work. At the same time, an employee of a construction company, driving a company vehicle, a Honda Insight, made a left hand turn into the path of the cyclist, causing a collision. There were no witnesses to the occurrence. Plaintiff alleged he had the right of way on a green light and was riding in the bike lane. Defendant claimed he entered the intersection, stopped, waited for traffic to pass, and then as he was making a left turn, the cyclist came out of nowhere crashing into his car. Bekkerman Law Offices retained an accident reconstruction expert to support Plaintiff's version, and dis-prove the defendant driver's. The settlement amount takes into account the severity of the injuries, including right knee trauma, with fractures above and below the knee joint, and several surgeries to place and remove hardware. The settlement also compensates the Plaintiff and his family for the two year struggle he has had to overcome his injuries through several surgeries, dozens of therapy sessions, prolonged hospitalizations, and for his severe mental and physical pain and anguish.
