Illinois Personal Injury Lawsuit Results And Capabilities

Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers

Those who have been injured due to the negligence of others may have grounds for successfully getting injury compensation through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit. As seen on the “Personal Injury Categories” page, there are many types of personal injury cases.

When someone is hurt, there may be a great need for such compensation due to the costs and other financial challenges that arise due to injury. Direct costs can include that incurred for medical care, which may include hospitalization; testing; surgeries; other medical care; and rehabilitation. These costs can be (very) high, especially for those that don’t have insurance.

Indirect costs of being hurt can include lost wages if work is missed due to the injuries. If the injuries are permanent injuries, there may be an inability to return to work, and/or the need for ongoing medical care. If either of these situations arise, they can cause substantial financial challenges.

Due to the these direct costs and indirect costs, as well as the need or desire for other forms of compensation, many people choose to pursue compensation through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit.

Personal Injury Lawsuit Verdicts

The personal injury lawyers at the Elman Law Group have established a reputation for their court trial performance.  This has proven valuable to our clients, because if a lawsuit settlement offer is not acceptable, we have a proven capability of successfully taking cases to court and achieving attractive verdicts.  As seen in many Elman Law Group cases, taking cases to court has often led to (substantially) higher compensation for our clients.

One such case was a “slip & fall” injury case. Elman Law Group achieved a $746,000 jury verdict in a “slip & fall” accident after no settlement was offered.  The underlying injury occurred in Blue Island.  In that case (Geneva Lewis vs. Pierre’s) a rotator cuff injury occurred after the plaintiff slipped on a wet floor in a bakery.

Among our other notable lawsuit results include:

  • A $980,00 verdict in a Chicago auto accident
  • A $775,000 lawsuit settlement for a case involving a woman hit by a car in Chicago
  • A $621,000 jury verdict involving a wrist fracture injury resulting from a Chicago car accident. The case, John Calhoun vs. Peter Ochoa, involved a court trial in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago.
  • A $240,000 settlement in 2018
  • Many $100,000+ awards

Because of the Elman Law Group’s courtroom trial performance – which also allows us to get large verdicts for smaller cases –  many well-known Chicago law firms (as well as national law firms) choose the Elman Law Group to take their cases to court.
