Colin Cameron began representing cyclists and pedestrians in 2010 when one of his good friends was doored while riding his bike on Milwaukee Wicker Park.
The accident resulted in a broken collar bone and soft tissue injury. His friend received treatment at the emergency room, but didn’t have health insurance, which meant he was stuck with daunting hospital bills and a long list of medical treatments he needed, but couldn’t afford.
Colin stepped in to represent his friend, and helped him secure a large cash settlement from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Through his regular attendance at rock, electronic and experimental music shows in the city, as well as his legal work for local music industry clients such as the Acid Marshmallow festival and various independent sound engineers and producers, Colin has met a great number of people in the city’s music and creative communities, a large percentage of whom use bikes as their primary mode of transportation. In a city as dense as Chicago, bike accidents and related injuries are an unfortunate inevitability.
This is where the idea for Chicago Bike Law firm came from. After successfully representing his friend in the aftermath of his bike accident, Colin has developed a passion for advocating for the city’s most vulnerable and underrepresented users of public roadways: cyclists and pedestrians. Whether the injuries are large or small, and whether or not you have health insurance or auto insurance, we can help.
