Elman Law Group, LLC Wins Big With A Stunning $621,000 Jury Verdict In Cook County (Chicago, Illinois) “Wrist Fracture” Car Accident Case

Anthony R. Elman of Elman Law Group, LLC has successfully achieved a $621,000 jury verdict involving a wrist fracture stemming from a Chicago car accident. The case, John Calhoun vs. Peter Ochoa, was tried in Cook County Circuit Court, Chicago, Illinois.

Elman Law Group took the case to trial after there was a Last Offer to Settle by Defendant (American Family Insurance In House Counsel) of $45,000.

The case involved a 36-year-old plaintiff who was involved in a Chicago car accident, which happened when the defendant, insured by American Family Insurance Company, allegedly failed to yield the right-of-way when his car made a left-hand turn in front of the plaintiff’s car. The plaintiff, who was the front-seat passenger in the car, suffered a wrist injury to his right arm when the deployed airbag hit his arm. The plaintiff had about 2-3 months of post-accident treatment for this wrist fracture. No invasive surgery was ever needed. The treatment consisted of pain medications, wearing a hand cast, physical therapy, and closed reduction non-invasive outpatient surgery. The defense was allowed to introduce into evidence that the plaintiff had a recent felony criminal conviction.

Plaintiff’s medical bills were about $21,000. Anthony Elman’s last settlement demand was $50,000.
