Meet Mark. He has the highest recorded verdict or settlement for a knee injury in Illinois. Second place goes to former Chicago Bear Johnny Morris in a medical malpractice case.
It was my privilege and responsibilty to be Mark’s trial lawyer. Mark fell at a construction site. Insulated matting for a concrete pour had negligently been placed over, and hid, a curb, so Mark fell. There were many defenses to the case including that Mark was at fault because he was not careful. The jury sunk that boat with their finding Mark 0% at fault.
He used to love being a plumber but can now no longer be so employed. The jury returned a verdict for $5.36 million. Mark and I have stayed in contact and developed a friendship; who knows when I will need a loan!! Actually, Mark is very intuitive when discussing how juries will view my serious injury and wrongful death cases in Chicago.
