Case Results

The Elman Law Group is comprised of personal injury trial lawyers, and we have been handling Illinois personal injury lawsuits for over 25 years.  The firm has handled over 10,000 Illinois personal injury cases.  This extensive experience allows us to determine the best course of action to get clients the maximum amount of injury compensation.  

Anthony Elman, the Lead Trial Attorney of the Elman Law Group, has been named by Thomson Reuters as a “Super Lawyer."  This "Super Lawyer" designation is based upon lawyer performance as well as peer review.  The designation is granted to no more than 5% of attorneys.

Furthermore, in October 2019 Anthony Elman received the Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter's historical recognition for “the most reported jury trials as a plaintiff attorney” during the last 30 years.   This award, given at the 2019 Trial Lawyer Excellence Award Event held in Chicago, is further discussed in the “Anthony Elman Receives Most Reported Jury Trials Recognition” post. 

This award, as well as other accomplishments, highlights the extensive level of experience and proven results that the Elman Law Group has achieved while handling Illinois personal injury cases.  

Court Trial Performance

Over the last 30+ years, the Elman Law Group has established a reputation for court trial performance.  This performance has proven valuable to our clients, as seen in many case results.   If a settlement offer is not acceptable, the Elman Law Group has proven it can take cases to court in order to get higher compensation for our clients.  In many cases, taking a case to court results in (substantially) higher compensation as compared to the final settlement offered.

One example was a “slip & fall” injury case.  In this case (Geneva Lewis vs. Pierre’s)  the plaintiff was in a bakery and slipped on a wet floor.  The resulting injury was a torn rotator cuff injury. The Elman Law Group took the case to court after no settlement (i.e. a settlement offer of $0) was offered and achieved a $746,000 jury verdict.  

Other notable case results include:

A $980,000 verdict for a Chicago auto accident

A $775,000 settlement in 2019 for injuries suffered after a woman was hit by a car in Chicago (this pedestrian accident was summarized in the post titled “Elman Law Group Attains $775,000 Settlement In Chicago Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit”)

A $621,000 jury verdict for Chicago car accident injuries.  Injuries included a fractured wrist. This car accident case (John Calhoun vs. Peter Ochoa) involved a Cook County Circuit Court trial.

A $240,000 settlement in 2018

A $220,000 settlement for a parking lot accident.  This injury case involved a 2018 Will County lawsuit involving a plaintiff with a broken arm

A $105,000 Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).  This 2018 case concerned car accident injuries that involved an uninsured motorist

Many $100,000+ injury awards

This courtroom trial performance also helps us get large verdicts for smaller cases.  One example of this was an injury lawsuit regarding a Kennedy Expressway car accident.  This accident involved a collision between two cars.  In this lawsuit, the Elman Law Group won a jury verdict of $56,233 for the accident injury, a driver's fractured rib.  That case is further discussed in the post titled "Elman Law Group LLC Client Awarded $56,233 Jury Verdict In Chicago Kennedy Expressway Accident."

I hired Tony after a car accident in 2014. This entire experience has been handled with the utmost care and attention. One of the most valuable aspects of the working relationship was Tony's ability to explain this complicated legal process and set realistic expectations. I'm very happy with my settlement!

Mr. Elman represented my wife and me after a car accident. A driver ran a red light hitting us, causing us to collide with 2 other cars. The Elman Law Group was very professional, courteous, thorough, and caring. The net result was 2 very fair settlements for my wife and me. Thanks Tony!!! Walt and Paula

I hired Anthony (Tony) Elman after the car I was riding in was hit by a driver that fell asleep, crossed the median and flipped over onto our car. That driver was underinsured. Tony was responsive and his follow-through exemplary, resulting in two settlements. Cindy
