Notable Verdicts & Settlements
Kralovec, Jambois, & Schwartz leads all Illinois practices in total number of major injury cases successfully tried in the State of Illinois. Compensatory awards in KJS cases regularly exceed $1 million, and during the last five years, the firm has won more than $200 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of its clients.
KJS’ shining record of verdicts and settlements reveals what clients want and need to know about their representation before they enter a lawsuit. Because most firms are not equipped to challenge powerful insurance companies, more injury victims are looking to KJS for strong representation.
More and more KJS-represented cases are helping to define and influence personal injury litigation in Illinois.

Miller later followed the plaintiff outside and kicked him, causing wrist fracture requiring surgery ($10,090 medical expense).
