Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. has been named by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® as one of the “Best Law Firms” for its personal injury practice in the 2016 “Best Law Firms” rankings. This selection marks the fifth consecutive year that the firm has been honored as a “Best Law Firm” in the Chicago metropolitan area.
Partner Steven A. Berman and Associate Melanie J. VanOverloop of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. secured a significant verdict of $1.2 million on behalf of their client, a Local 74 Bricklayer who suffered an open fracture to the tibia bone in his leg.
Before trial, the Defense offered a $50,000 settlement. The settlement offer would have only covered half of the Plaintiff’s medical bills. While other law firms are often quick to settle, attorneys Steven Berman and Melanie VanOverloop determined that the offer was unfair and rejected the settlement. The trial attorneys understood that their client should be fairly compensated for his losses and would not settle for less than the maximum compensation he is entitled to due to his serious injury.
A jury in the Circuit Court of Cook County returned the verdict in complete agreement with the total damages amount of $1,228,594 requested by attorney Steven Berman. The favorable verdict won on behalf of the Local 74 Bricklayer speaks to the level of commitment to excellence the attorneys at Anesi Ozmon have embodied throughout their practice as personal injury lawyers.
