Jury Trials Experience Award Given To Anthony R. Elman

Jury trials can be a critical avenue in achieving substantial vehicle accident injury compensation. As seen in the 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 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 Law Group has achieved in Illinois personal injury lawsuits.

This level of jury trials performance has proven valuable to Elman Law Group clients.  Many clients have received substantially more money for their injuries after the Elman 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.

Elman Law Group has been handling Illinois personal injury cases for over 25 years.  During this 25+ year period, the Elman Law Group has handled over 10,000 personal injury cases.  This breadth of experience and success in jury trials provides valuable insights in determining the course of action that will lead to the optimal resolution of a personal injury or wrongful death case.

Fatal Traffic Accidents During The 2016 July 4 Weekend

Traffic accidents during and around major holidays continues to be a major concern, due to many factors, including increased traffic and the likelihood of increased driving while intoxicated.

The Chicago Tribune, in a June 30, 2016 article titled “July 4 weekend traffic deaths seen jumping to highest since 2008” features a Bloomberg article that discusses why this July 4 weekend is expected to have a higher number of fatal traffic accidents than in recent years.

A couple of notable excerpts from the article include:

There will be 466 deaths from Friday evening through Monday, according to a projection from the National Safety Council. That’s an average of about 143 per 24 hours, compared with 107 in 2014 and an estimated 126 last year.

Car accidents have been climbing recently, reversing a years-long trend that had been credited to improved technology in cars and increased awareness of the risks of drunk driving. Another reason for the decline was that the economic slump that started in 2008 discouraged many people from traveling.

also:

On average, July 4 was the deadliest day on the road from 2010 through 2014, followed by Jan. 1, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In Florida, Independence Day fatalities increased last year to 15 from 3, according to Sgt. Kim Montes, a spokeswoman for the state’s highway patrol.

Additional details can be seen in the Chicago Tribune article mentioned above, as well as the sources mentioned within the article.
