$1.9 Million Settlement

Murray v. R. A. Bright Construction Company

Circuit Court of Will County Case Number 95 L 4826

On May 22, 1995, a 38 year-old woman was catastrophically injured when a truck being driven by an employee of R. A. Bright Construction Company crossed the center line and collided with her automobile head-on. As a result of the violent collision, she suffered severe and permanent orthopedic injuries, preventing her from continuing her previous employment as a network computer systems analyst.

Through the use of a professionally organized and conducted mock trial/focus group, Ed Walsh presented his case to a mock jury, prior to trial. The results of the mock trial jury verdict allowed the firm to negotiate a $1,900,000.00 settlement on behalf of our client. The settlement will allow the client to pursue her computer skills and enjoy those non-employment activities that are an important part of her life.

The use of mock trial/focus groups is another example of how our firm uses state-of-the-art, cutting-edge strategies to maximize jury verdicts and settlements for our needy clients.

By presenting select significant cases to mock juries/focus groups, our attorneys learn what aspects of their cases are weak and need further improvement, as well as those aspects of their cases that are powerful and extra-significant. In this way, the attorneys improve their trial lawyer skills and enhance the quality of our clients' cases. As a result, our lawyers are more able to secure results for our clients, which will allow them to receive lifetime educational, medical, and rehabilitation care and provide for their lifetime financial security.
