Tomasik Kotin Kasserman Honored with 2015 Litigator Award

2015 Litigator Award

CHICAGO, IL, JANUARY 21, 2016

The Chicago personal injury attorneys of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman received the 2015 Litigator Award, ranking the firm among the Top 1% of all attorneys in the U.S. for the areas of Medical Malpractice, Truck Accidents, Surgical Error, and Brain Injury Litigation.

Standing as a token of litigation achievement, the Litigator Award recognizes trial lawyers and law firms who have attained extraordinary litigation within a particular practice specialty. Based on verdict or settlement dollar amounts, rather than peer popularity, the Litigator Awards are for those who perform well for their clients in the courtroom or through settlement negotiations.

To receive this distinguished award, Tomasik Kotin Kasserman triumphed in four notable case results this year. These cases include:

  • $25.9 million verdict on behalf of a lawyer who was severely injured in a horrific taxi crash 10 years ago that involved a speeding cab that went hurling off an expressway ramp and smashed head-on into a concrete barrier.
  • $7.5 million verdict on behalf of estate and children of City of Chicago worker who was killed as a result of trucking negligence.
  • $7 million on medical malpractice case for a botched abdominal surgery resulting in short gut syndrome.
  • $1.357 million verdict on medical malpractice case for newborn baby boy who suffered amputation of the tip of his penis during Mogen Clamp circumcision resulting in scarring and altered sensation in the future.

Winning the 2015 Litigator Award is an achievement obtained by only less than 1% of all lawyers nationwide. With nearly 1.1 million attorneys considered, and only a few selected per state, the distinction of the Litigator Award is truly unique.

Tomasik Kotin Kasserman and other 2015 award honorees will be featured in a series of national television commercials on the CNN network. Acclaimed news program Anderson Cooper 360 will feature airings, as well as CNN Prime and Erin Burnett Out-Front. Other networks such as CNBC, Fox News, Court TV, ABC, TNT, TBS, E! Entertainment, A&E, FX, TLC, ESPN, and many more will also broadcast the winners.

The attorneys at Tomasik Kotin Kasserman pride themselves on ensuring that the rights and best interests of their clients are protected. The achievement of the 2015 Litigator Award shows this dedication. For more information or to contact an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer, call 312-605-8800.
