Plaintiff was smashed into by a truck that rear-ended him nearing the Toll Plaza on I-294 in the Southwest Chicago Suburbs. The collision propelled his vehicle across four traffic lanes and into the median. Our client was unconscious, was cut from the car and taken to the emergency room. He was in an induced coma for weeks and later had to recover his ability to use his hands and feet for daily activities. He has made a surprisingly-good recovery.
The Result – $2,000,000
Our firm was able to get the Truck’s insurance company to turn over the full amount of their available insurance money, nearly $2 Million dollars, and the case was resolved in only 7 months.
A 53-year-old employee of Recorder of Deeds (Cook County) tripped while walking through the office on unsafely-maintained rug. She suffered multiple fractures to her right wrist and has had multiple surgeries to repair them, and her hand was left severely impaired.
The Result – $98,878
This case was tried before an IWCC Arbitrator in Chicago, who awarded the Petitioner the equivalent of nearly 100% loss of use of her hand.
