Mr. Iovinelli defended Dan Coffey and Sila Maintenance in a jury trial before Judge Axelrood at the Daley Center. The trial lasted 4 days. Joan Anaya alleged that as a result of a rear end motor vehicle accident her spine was injured requiring surgery. She put in evidence $222,800 in medical bills. The Plaintiff’s expert Dr. Lim testified for the plaintiff but Mr. Iovinelli’s cross exam undermined the reliability of his testimony. At closing argument, counsel for plaintiff asked the jury for $750,000. The jury, siding with Mr. Iovinelli, found that the plaintiff suffered only a minor strain of her lower back and returned a verdict of only $5,000.
Mr. Srodulski defended a State Farm insured in a jury trial in the Circuit Court of Cook County. The presiding judge was Judge Bartkowicz. The trial lasted several days. The case arose from a minor automobile accident. The plaintiffs alleged that as a result of the accident, they suffered injuries to spinal disks and were at risk of future medical care and treatment. Mr. Srodulski effectively attacked the questionable medical witnesses and showed the jury that the plaintiffs had significant problems with trustworthiness. He also mounted an effective medical defense using objective and credible medical witnesses. The lawyer for the Plaintiffs asked the jury for $190,000. The jury, however, agreed with Mr. Srodulski’s position and returned a verdict of only $8000 total essentially awarding emergency room charges only.
