Success Records

Recent Verdicts and Settlements

The personal injury law firm of Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. is proud of the work we have done on behalf of clients. Since our firm was founded, we have secured more than $800 million in verdicts and settlements, including 198 cases resulting in awards of $1 million or more.

In 2012, our firm was one of only six law firms to report settlements totaling $25 million or more in the Jury Verdict Reporter / Chicago Daily Law Bulletin’s Settlement Survey. Our firm had recovered a total of $46.51 million in five cases reported in the survey, including a $22.6 million settlement in a birth injury case that had gone to the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals (affirming the verdict)and an $8.25 million settlement of an infant death case that is the largest such settlement in Illinois history. Our firm’s settlements in 2012 also included a $5 million settlement in Stephenson County and a $2 million settlement in McLean County – both medical malpractice cases.

In addition to settlements, our firm has also secured successful results at trial, including a $33.2 million personal injury verdict obtained in 2009 on behalf of a drunk-driving accident victim that, to this date, remains the largest jury verdict in Lake County history.

No matter whether a case is large or small, it is important to us because we know it is important to you. We are dedicated to using the full extent of our skills, resources and experience to help you get the compensation you deserve.

The following are descriptions of the many results we have obtained for clients in Chicago and across Illinois. These results show our experience in handling a wide variety of cases.

However, these cases should not be viewed as the guarantee of a specific result for a potential case. Each case is different and involves unique factual and legal issues.  Many factors ultimately determine the value of a case, including the availability of insurance coverage.

To discuss the specific facts of your case, please contact us through our toll-free number or by submitting our online contact form. We would be pleased to provide a free and confidential consultation about your case.
