Notable Cases:. $35,835,684.00 (2006). Jury verdict (reduced to $26,875,000.00 for 25% contributory negligence) in favor of a 51 year old mother of two who sustained severe brain stem injury causing quadriplegia and cranial nerve injuries when she was broadsided by a Cook County Sheriff's Police officer traveling through a red light at approximately 70 miles per hour while en route to a low-priority unwanted subject' call as an un-requested backup unit. The plaintiff was required to prove, and the jury found, that the officer's conduct was willful and wanton. Defendants claimed that the officer was on an emergency call and was justified in her actions going through the intersection. Plaintiff's attorney Paul Salzetta was able to exclude evidence of alcohol due to unreliable testing and a showing that the client was not impaired and that alcohol played no part in the collision. This is one of the largest jury verdicts ever obtained against Cook County or any municipality in the state of Illinois . $2,750,000.00 (2005). Settlement in a personal injury case on behalf of a 29 year old woman whose child was stillborn when a nurse failed to appropriately read the fetal monitor and summon a doctor's assistance when the monitor indicated that the baby was in distress. As a result of the nurse's negligence, the baby died in the mother's abdomen before being delivered. This is one of the largest settlements for this type of injury (pre-natal death) recorded in Cook County . $1,083,000.00 (2005). Settlement in a motor vehicle collision case on behalf of a 47 year old woman truck driver who suffered a head injury when she was rear-ended by the defendant on the interstate. Following several months of non-specific complaints, the Plaintiff developed seizures. Subsequent evaluations by a neurologist and neurosurgeon identified that she was suffering from post-traumatic induced epilepsy. The Plaintiff is now on permanent medications and has had to undergo several procedures to implant an anti-seizure medical device. $833,000.00 (2005). Jury verdict in a defamation case in favor of a high school coach defamed by the parent of one of the players on his team. $375,000.00 (2005). Settlement in a medical malpractice action on behalf of a 45 year old woman in whom a sponge was left after she was admitted to the hospital 34 weeks pregnant. An emergency c-section was performed as her labor was induced and she failed to progress. At the conclusion of the operation, the doctors realized they did not do a sponge count but counted the wrappers and determined that all sponges were accounted for. The next day, after complaints of abdominal pains, the doctors did a CT scan, which revealed the presence of a sponge in her uterus. The Plaintiff then underwent laparoscopic surgery for removal of the sponge and suffered further complications and discomfort requiring an additional surgery. $950,000.00 (2004). Settlement in medical malpractice action on behalf of a 58 year old woman married with 5 adult children who died several days after an emergency hospitalization for shortness of breath and fainting,. Autopsy revealed that she had suffered a bilateral saddle embolism, which is a blood clot in the arterial blood flow btw the heart and lungs. The plaintiff claimed that the emergency room physician and treating internal medicine physicians failed to identify signs and symptoms indicative of a pulmonary embolism known to cause immediate death if not treated. With adequate treatment and certain anti-coagulative therapy, the plaintiff's decedent's chances of survival would have been greatly increased. $3,000,000.00 (2003). Recovery for a young woman whose right elbow was injured in an automobile collision. Her vehicle was struck at an intersection by an offender fleeing police during a pursuit. The recovery against the police authority was grounded on willful and wonton conduct for the manner in which it conducted the police pursuit, which endangered public safety. $875,000.00 (2003). Wrongful Death recovery to family (parents and two brothers) of 22 year old young man who turned left at the end of a green arrow light control and was struck by a truck entering the controlled intersection on a red light. An accident reconstruction expert established that though the deceased was turning left, the defendant-trucker's light had just turned red and he did not slow down or stop. $400,000.00 (2002). Recover for a medical negligence injury to a retired gentleman who was admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for lumbar surgery. The anesthesiologist carelessly performed placement of the endotracheal tube causing partial damage to one of his cords and temporary induced coma necessitating several months of rehabilitation. $1,000,000.00 (2001). On behalf of the wife of a young man killed instantly when his vehicle ran off the road on I-88. Motorists reported seeing a blue plastic crate ahead of the deceased causing him to veer off the road and hit a light pole. Investigation revealed the identities of the manufacturer of the crate as well as the transporter. Witness testimony and reconstruction of the evidence established that the crate carrier was on the same road shortly before the occurrence and likely dropped a crate from its load onto the roadway leading to the crash. $800,000.00 (2001). Recovery on behalf of a trucker rear-ended at the O'Hare Toll-way Oasis. The impact damaged his left knee and he suffered chronic lumbar muscle damage. $1,500,000.00 (2000). Recovery from general contractor for 49 year old steel construction worker who fell from an unsecured ladder injuring his right ankle prohibiting him from engaging in his trade. The general contractor claimed it lacked notice of the condition but investigation and discovery established that the defendant had enough knowledge of the work site so that it should have been known of the dangerous condition. $1,300,000.00 (2000). On behalf of an electrician who fell 40 feet from an elevated platform suffering multiple fractures to both legs. The general contractor contended that the plaintiff was responsible for his own injuries in failing to secure his safety harness. Despite having no recall of the fall and no eyewitnesses, we were able to reconstruct events to show that the plaintiff was likely transitioning between tie-offs requiring him to detach his harness at the moment he fell. $5,000,000.00 (1999). Recovery for 22 year old who was broad-sided by a CTA bus as he was exiting a Jewel Supermarket parking lot. Plaintiff suffered brain damage, causing spastic quadriplegia and cognitive deficits requiring life long care. Despite the defendant's contentions that the plaintiff pulled out in front of the bus from a private drive, reconstruction evidence showed that our client was not entirely at fault. $172,000.00 (1999). Federal jury verdict against Firestone on behalf of a man who injured 3 fingers while attempting to reinstall a wheel that had fallen off his vehicle while driving. Expert metallurgical analysis proved that mechanics at a Firestone Auto Service Center failed to tighten all the lug nuts on the wheel following new tire installation. $900,000.00 (1998). Recovery for a woman who suffered damage to her esophagus due to medical negligence caused by physicians performing sclerol therapy.

Commercial Litigation settlement on behalf of a seller of a business against the buyer who reneged on the purchase price alleging seller fraud. Document investigation and discovery, including Business Valuation experts established that the seller sold valuable goods and inventory and that the purchaser was attempting to raid the business and force the seller to accept a lower offer. $900,000.00 (1997). Settlement against car wheel manufacturer Budd Company on behalf of the family of a 17 year old boy killed at an automobile service station by a tire that exploded while he was inflating it following a repair. In a lawsuit against Budd Company, and tire manufacturer Uniroyal/Goodrich Tire Company, Mr. Salzetta established that the wheel company began manufacturing and selling wheels one-half inch greater in diameter, 16.5 inches rather than previously marketed 16.0-inch wheels to the same market consumers but without adequate notice or information. The inadvertent use of the larger tire caused the tire to explode upon its inflation. In a subsequent trial against the tire manufacturer only, the jury found against the defendant. Although the verdict did not exceed the original settlement it was only one of several favorable verdicts ever reached nationwide in a wheel/tire mismatch trial against the tire manufacturer only. $4,600,000.00 (1995). Co-chair trial counsel in jury verdict against an automobile service center on behalf of a young man severely burned in a single vehicle collision in which his vehicle erupted into flames.

Jury verdict obtained in a female sexual discrimination trial against trucking giant Yellow Freight Systems for failure to hire a woman trucker.
