Will County Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Settlement Of $209,000

A Will County motorcycle accident lawsuit settlement of $209,000 was attained by the Elman Joseph Law Group. This $209,000 motorcycle accident lawsuit settlement pertained to a motorcycle accident injury case. The plaintiff was Javier Cotto and the defendant was Joan Eklund. [Name of case; Javier Cotto vs. Joan Eklund, 19 L 51 (Will County, IL); Name of (lead) lawyer: Anthony R. Elman with co-counsel attorneys, Lerner and Rowe]

The underlying motorcycle accident occurred in Crest Hill, Illinois on December 16, 2017. On that day, a motorcyclist, Javier Cotto, 34, was riding his Suzuki motorcycle eastbound along Theodore Street. At the intersection of Theodore Street and Rock Run Drive, Cotto alleges that a westbound Toyota Camry driven by Joan Eklund was attempting to make a left-hand turn and failed to yield the right-of-way, and the Camry collided with Cotto’s motorcycle. This type of motorcycle accident, in which a vehicle making a left-hand turn hits a motorcycle, is a common cause of DuPage County motorcycle accidents. These collisions are often highly physically traumatic to the motorcyclist, and in many cases cause serious accident injuries. Some of these injuries lead to fatalities.

Joan Eklund filed many affirmative defenses against Javier Cotto, alleging that he failed to keep a proper lookout; failed to keep his motorcycle in proper lane of travel; operated his motorcycle too fast for conditions; failed to yield the right of way to defendant’s vehicle; disobeyed a traffic signal; failed to activate the horn; and failed to avoid impact.

Like many motorcyclists who are injured during accidents, Cotto suffered many injuries during the collision. These injuries included those to the neck, back, and leg. His medical treatment included being taken to the hospital and being treated in the emergency room (ER), epidural injections, and chiropractic sessions.

Joan Eklund’s insurance company, Farmer’s Insurance, offered $100,000 at or near the time the lawsuit was filed.

The motorcycle accident lawsuit settlement discussed above is another example of the experienced trial attorneys at the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC bringing an accident injury case to a successful conclusion. Over the last 25+ years, the firm has won many high settlements and jury trial awards. This success has involved a wide range of Illinois personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Jury Trials Plaintiff Attorney Experience Award Given To Anthony R. Elman

Jury trials can be a critical avenue in achieving substantial vehicle accident injury compensation. As seen in many DuPage County accidents discussed on this site, many have caused serious accident injuries. Some of these accidents have led to one or more fatalities. Following these accident injuries, those who are injured due to the negligence of others often seek to get injury compensation through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit. In those instances where negligence has led to a fatality, relevant parties may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Anthony R. Elman, Lead Trial Attorney at the Elman Joseph Law Group, recently received a lifetime achievement award testifying to his leading jury trials experience as a plaintiff trial attorney.

On October 24, 2019 more than 300 trial attorneys and Illinois judges attended the annual Trial Lawyer Excellence Award event at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.  This event is hosted by the Jury Verdict Reporter, a division of Chicago-based Law Bulletin Media.  The event recognizes the state’s top civil litigation attorneys.

An excerpt from the 2019 Trial Lawyer Excellence Award page:

Fifty-four professionals from both sides of the trial bar received individual Trial Lawyer Excellence awards in one of seventeen 2019 categories.

At this Trial Lawyer Excellence Award Event, Anthony R. Elman received the special Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter historical recognition for “the most reported jury trials as a plaintiff attorney” during the last 30 years.  This award, as well as other awards, verdicts and settlements indicates the level of experience and proven results that the Elman Joseph Law Group has achieved in Illinois personal injury lawsuits.

This level of jury trials performance has proven valuable to Elman Joseph Law Group clients.  Many clients have received substantially more money for their injuries after the Elman Joseph Law Group took their lawsuits to court after settlement offers proved inadequate.

Anthony Elman has been designated as a “Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters. This designation, which is based upon various criteria encompassing lawyer performance and peer review, is granted to no more than 5% of attorneys.

Chicago Area Expressway Accidents And Injury Compensation

Chicago area expressway accidents often lead to serious accident injuries, and occasionally fatal accident injuries. Some of these accidents are rear-end collisions. On this site, many DuPage County expressway accidents have been summarized.

The Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC has handled many Chicago area expressway accidents. It recently settled a lawsuit that involved an expressway accident. The case, which settled in October 2019, involved a woman who was “rear-ended” by an ambulance while the woman was driving on the expressway.

Frederick Joseph III, a partner and winning personal injury trial lawyer at the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC, settled this motor vehicle injury case for $350,000.

The $350,000 settlement was achieved by the Elman Joseph Law Group after the final settlement offer by the ambulance company was only $6,000.

The rear-end collision happened when the plaintiff, Michalia Agins, 22 years old, was driving back home to Chicago after visiting her parents. When traffic slowed down on the expressway (eastbound I-90), Ms. Agins was “rear-ended” by an ambulance. The ambulance was transporting a medical patient from one hospital to another. The ambulance had no lights or sirens activated at the time of the accident.

Ms. Agins started feeling pain immediately in her neck, back, and her shoulder (the same shoulder she previously had surgery on to repair a sports injury). Thankfully, she was able to drive her vehicle home from the scene but as the pain got worse, Michalia sought medical treatment. She underwent months of physical therapy; however, doctors advised Michalia that she was going to need surgery on her shoulder to repair a torn tendon from the collision. The recovery process was long and painful, and Michalia was forced to quit her job as a hair stylist.

Illinois has very strict legal protections for ambulance companies, both public and private. The laws in Illinois can make it very difficult to get a substantial recovery against an ambulance company. Superior Ambulance initially refused to offer anything to settle the case. Before the case was transferred to The Elman Joseph Law Group, the final offer to settle was only $6,000.

Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC immediately filed suit and began the discovery process. A dashcam video inside the ambulance showed that the driver (who was on a 24 hour shift) was falling asleep at the wheel. Before the impact, his eyes were shut for at least three seconds on the highway. As the investigation continued, Anthony R. Elman and Frederick Joseph put together a strong case for Ms. Agins and prepared for trial. Before trial, Frederick Joseph negotiated a settlement with the defendants in the amount of $350,000.

This Chicago area expressway accident injury settlement is another example of the experienced trial attorneys at the Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC bringing a challenging case to a successful conclusion. The trial lawyers at the firm have many high settlements and jury trial awards over the course of the last 25+ years. This success has been achieved across a wide range of Illinois personal injury and wrongful death cases. Some of these notable settlements and jury trial awards are further discussed on the “DuPage County Car Accident Lawyer” page.

$775,000 Lawsuit Settlement Attained For Pedestrian Accident Injury

A $775,000 lawsuit settlement has recently been attained by the Elman Joseph Law Group. The underlying pedestrian accident injury occurred in Chicago.

The case involved an 80-year-old woman, Georgina Melendez, who was struck by a vehicle on March 11, 2017.  The accident occurred at 8:00 p.m. at the corner of Ashland and Leland.

According to the police report, the defendant and two witnesses both indicated that at the time of the accident the intersection was dark, and the plaintiff was wearing dark, non-contrasting clothing.

Claimed harm to Georgina Melendez included a dislocated left knee with a post-operative blood clot.  Specifically, the knee injury was an acute complete ACL rupture, with associated slight anterior translation of the proximal tibia relative to the distal femur.

After the operation, the orthopedic surgeon indicated that Georgina Melendez made a nearly full and complete recovery.

Medical bills related to the initial knee surgery were approximately $220,000.

The defendant was insured by State Farm Insurance.

In addition to this $775,000 lawsuit settlement Elman Joseph Law Group has achieved notable settlements and jury verdicts across a range of personal injury cases.  Over the last 25+ years, Elman Joseph Law Group has handled over 10,000 Illinois personal injury lawsuits.

During this time, Elman Joseph Law Group has established a reputation for its court trial performance.  As seen in many cases, the Elman Joseph Law Group’s ability to win court cases has often resulted in significantly higher monetary awards for its clients. Some of the more notable awards and accomplishments are highlighted in the “DuPage County Car Accident Lawyer” page.

Anthony Elman, the Lead Trial Attorney for the Elman Joseph Law Group, has been designated as a “Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters. This designation, which is based upon various factors including lawyer performance and peer review, is granted to no more than 5% of attorneys.

As seen in the $775,000 lawsuit settlement summarized above, medical costs to treat pedestrian accident injuries can be substantial. Unfortunately, when a person is hit by a vehicle a broad range of serious injuries can result.

There are many types of accidents that can occur on expressways. One common type of accident is when one vehicle gets rear-ended by another vehicle, like the accident summarized above.

When someone is rear-ended by another vehicle, there can be a range of injuries that occur. One of the most common injuries is “whiplash.” However, a range of injuries can occur due to the fact that vehicle occupants are often subject to strong and unnatural forces during these collisions. As seen in the above-summarized accident, these accidents can lead to possibly life-threatening injuries, of which some are fatal.

The Elman Joseph Law Group recently settled a lawsuit in which a vehicle was rear-ended by another vehicle on a Chicago area expressway. That accident and $350,000 lawsuit settlement is discussed on the “Chicago Area Expressway Accidents And Injury Compensation” post. As seen in that post, the plaintiff suffered injury and pain, and had to have a surgery to repair her shoulder.
