CHICAGO (PRWEB) October 12, 2018
Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. is pleased to announce the firm was highlighted in Chicago Lawyer Magazine’s 2018 Settlement Survey as one of the top two law firms in the state of Illinois.
Each year, Chicago Lawyer and Jury Verdict Reporter — a sister publication within Law Bulletin Media — examine the top reported settlements. This year’s report is based on $1.5 billion in settlements of Illinois cases submitted to Jury Verdict Reporter between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018.
This year, Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. ranked in the top two, settling 11 cases for a total of $126,800,000. The firm’s top case was a $115 million settlement on behalf of a dancer paralyzed at O’Hare International Airport. The settlement represents the largest personal injury settlement for an individual plaintiff in Illinois history and was reached after the city of Chicago’s attorneys challenged a record $148 million Cook County jury verdict that was awarded in August 2017 (Case No.: 15 L 8311)
“One of the most talked-about settlements of the past year was the $115 million settlement Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard obtained for Tierney Darden. The largest reported personal-injury settlement for an individual in Illinois’ history, Tierney Darden v. City of Chicago, et al., 15 L 8311, came after Chicago vowed to appeal a $148 million jury verdict, itself the largest Cook County personal-injury verdict ever reported,” Chicago Lawyer writes.

The firm represents clients in a variety of medical malpractice, personal injury and product liability cases.
