Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C.’s Record-Breaking $148 Million Jury Verdict Among Top 15 Verdicts in U.S. of 2017

CHICAGO (May 2, 2018) – VerdictSearch has released their annual list of “Top 100 Verdicts.” Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., is pleased to announce the firm’s record-breaking $148 million jury verdict (Darden v. City of Chicago) ranked as #14 on this year’s list.

On August 23, 2017, a Cook County jury awarded a record $148 million verdict to Tierney Darden, a young woman who was paralyzed when the pedestrian shelter she was standing next to outside of O’Hare International Airport collapsed onto her in 2015. The $148 million verdict represents the highest personal injury compensatory verdict awarded to an individual in Illinois history and was obtained after a 10-day trial by attorneys Patrick A. Salvi, Tara R. Devine, Patrick A. Salvi II, and Eirene N. Salvi.
