Christopher Ries was awarded $4 million as a result of a car accident that occurred during a police chase. Chicago police left a suspect in the back of their police car and then left the vehicle alone with the keys inside. The suspect stole their vehicle and the police engaged the suspect in a chase.

During the police chase the suspect ran the police car into Ries’ car which was stopped at a stop light. The accident caused neck and back injuries to Ries for which he now has significant medical bills.

A Chicago personal injury attorney managed to obtain a $4 million award for Ries’ injuries. The City of Chicago appealed this ruling and won the appeal thus ending the award.

This case is an example of Chicago taking a stronger defense against police misconduct cases. It had been suggested in the past that they settled too easily.

If you believe you’ve been the victim of police misconduct it’s important to contact a Chicago personal injury attorney right away. A law office like Malman Law that has a No Fee Guarantee gives you the confidence to pursue your case because if you do not receive a settlement you do not have to pay any legal fees.
