Phillips Law Offices secures a $900,000 settlement for husband and wife who were injured in a car collision on Interstate 57 in Central Illinois
Phillips Law Offices is proud to report that attorney Stephen J. Phillips recently secured a settlement of $900,000 for a husband and wife who were injured in a car collision on Interstate 57 in Central Illinois.
In April of 2020, a tire came off of the defendants trailer at highway speeds, blocking our clients’ lane of travel, violently forcing their car into a ditch. They both received significant injuries requiring surgery and physical therapy.
The downstate defendants said “Mr. Phillips this is not Chicago – we don’t pay that kind of money.” Stephen told them that’s nonsense people are people regardless of geography. The defendants ended up paying our clients far more than they originally said they would after we proved to them that we did not accept their defense attitude.
The case was filed and worked up through discovery by Stephen J. Phillips for over two and a half years prior to settlement.
Phillips Law Offices is often asked by their opposing counsel and even their opponents to represent their family and friends in personal injury and wrongful death matters. This fact speaks volumes about the nature of our practice.
