Chicago Personal Injury Attorney Wins 2 Million Dollar Settlement
April 08, 2019 – – The Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C. is pleased to announce their success in a recent case which saw a client walk away with a 1.95 million dollar settlement after sustaining a back injury in a car accident. The settlement was made two weeks before the case was scheduled to go to court.
Justin Wojtkowski, the plaintiff, was driving north on Interstate 55 near Bolingbrook when he was rear ended by Anthony J. Hofer, a Will County Sheriff’s Deputy. The vehicle was seriously damaged, and Wojtkowski suffered herniation of the disk in his lower back which, according to doctors, may have shortened his work life by ten years. Will County admitted negligence by its deputy but chose to contest the seriousness of the injuries. While Wojtkowski has recovered, his career has been shortened significantly, and the 1.95 million dollar settlement is meant to compensate him for his potentially shortened career.

A Google review written by Patrice Jones, a pleased client, states, “This law firm has been the best! My lawyer, Izabela, was the best! I was out of work for almost two years, and Izabela ensured that I received my earnings. There were times that I couldn’t hear her voice but email became our best friend. I received a response within 24 hours or less. She was my personal pitbull: Fighting on my behalf to ensure my financial needs were met, my health concerns, and my overall mental health concerns. I would not have remained sane without her.”
Another client states, “During my workman’s comp case, I contacted Matt Coleman. He assured me that everything would be okay. During the process, he was always available and always took the time to explain to me what was going on. Without his help, I wouldn’t have gotten the settlement I did. Even today, Matt still calls to check up on me. I would highly recommended him and his firm.”
An injury can completely change one’s life, and Wojtkowski’s case could have concluded very differently in the hands of another attorney.
