A Proven Record of Success

Throughout the years our firm has been fighting for injured victims and their families, we’ve secured noteworthy and record-setting verdicts and settlements in accident cases throughout Chicago and the state of Illinois. Below are just a few examples of our proven record of success:

  • $18.5 million settlement recovered for a victim who was seriously injured while filming a movie stunt involving an explosion and a motor vehicle being violently flipped over. The cable pulling the vehicle broke free from the stunt car and a large iron bracket, which was propelled into our client’s vehicle and her head.
  • $14.2 million verdict secured in a wrongful death case involving a construction worker who was struck and killed by a 25-foot l-bar. The defendant was alleged to have been negligent in failing to securely attach the l-bar as it was hoisted up the tugger bay.
  • $7.5 million in compensation recovered in an explosion accident case for a 28-year-old victim who was not warned to use a lowering hook when placing explosives into a hole. The resulting explosion caused serious injuries to his arm, resulting in the amputation of his arm and the loss of one of his eyes.
