Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. trial team recognized with Trial Lawyer Excellence Award
CHICAGO (October 22, 2017) – A Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., trial team was honored with a Trial Lawyer Excellence Award presented by the Jury Verdict Reporter, a division of Law Bulletin Publishing Company, at a by-invitation-only reception on Thursday, October 21 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
Attorneys Patrick A. Salvi, Tara R. Devine, Patrick A. Salvi II, and Eirene N. Salvi were recognized for obtaining the Highest Reported Illinois Verdict for Personal Injury (Compensatory Damages). More than 300 trial attorneys and Illinois judges were in attendance at the annual event when the team received the award.
In August 2017, the trial team won a $148 million jury verdict on behalf of Tierney Darden, who was paralyzed by a collapsed bus shelter at O’Hare International Airport in 2015. The verdict represents the highest personal injury verdict for an individual plaintiff in the state of Illinois that the Jury Verdict Reporter ever reported. The verdict was obtained after a 10-day trial that began on August 10, 2017 and was heard by Cook County Judge Clare McWilliams.
