Episode Details:

Award-winning plaintiffs' litigator Jeffrey Kroll of Kaveny + Kroll in Chicago shares how he advocated on behalf of the first person in the United States to die while using a bike-sharing program. On July 1, 2016, Virginia Murray, a 25-year-old college graduate, rode her DIVVY bike — part of Chicago's official bike-share program — to an intersection where truck driver Cosmin Radu sat idling in his employer's A & B Flooring truck. The light turned green, and Cosmin made a right-hand turn, which his broken turn signal lights did not indicate. His vehicle struck Virginia, killing her instantly. During trial, the Chicago jury returned a $7,000,000 verdict in less than two hours in favor of the plaintiff's estate.
