In the fall of 2020 a Chicago bicyclist went on a ride on a path within a suburban nature area. As the bicyclist was riding along she struck a pole in the middle of the shared path and fell to the ground. The pole was not immediately visible because a sign that was on the pole had fallen off at some point leaving the pole difficult to notice against the trees in the background. The bicyclist suffered fractures to her face and her arm. Keating Law filed a case in the Circuit Court of Cook County and during discovery learned that the entity responsible for the path had no idea when or how the sign fell off and did not make an effort to fix it.
