Elman Law Group has been handling Illinois personal injury lawsuits for over 25 years. During this period, the firm has handled over 10,000 personal injury cases. This breadth of experience helps us in determining the best course of action for your personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death case.
Elman Law Group handles Illinois personal injury lawsuits involving injuries caused by car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents. The firm also handles lawsuits involving premises liability injuries (such as”slip & fall” accident injuries), workplace accidents, nursing home injuries, and other situations where injuries or death has resulted due to the negligence or intentional actions of another person or party.
Court Trial Verdicts
Elman Law group has established a reputation among the legal community for its court trial performance. This is 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 $980,000 verdict in a Chicago auto accident
- A $775,000 settlement in 2019 for a woman hit and injured by a vehicle in Chicago, summarized in the “…A $775,000 Personal Injury Lawsuit Settlement” post.
- 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
- A $220,000 settlement in a 2018 Will County lawsuit involving a broken arm suffered during a parking lot accident
- A $105,000 Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in 2018 concerning car accident injuries involving an uninsured motorist
- Many $100,000+ awards
Because of the Elman Law Group’s courtroom trial performance – which also helps us get large verdicts for smaller cases – many well-known Chicago law firms (as well as national law firms) choose to have Elman Law Group take their cases to court.
