Right turn made from center lane 

Darrin McCowan, 35, was driving his motorcycle in the right lane headed toward an intersection. Timothy Kosogof’s vehicle was traveling in the center lane in front of McCowan. Kosogof attempted to make a right turn from the center lane, colliding with McCowan.

McCowan suffered a fractured right femur, necessitating two surgeries. His medical expenses were about $157,000. A chef earning about $650 per week, he missed about 12 weeks of work.

McCowan sued Kosogof, alleging he made an improper turn from the center lane.

The jury awarded about $732,800.

Citation: McCowan v. Kosogof, No. 10L007095 (Ill., Cook Co. Cir. Oct. 16, 2012).

Plaintiff counsel: AAJ member Larry E. Weisman and Janine M. Rosana, both of Chicago.
