Chicago, Illinois: The Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C. has made the list of the Top 20 Verdicts in Illinois for 2017 in all practice areas of law. To make this list of top 20 verdicts once is a feat but to appear twice is a great accomplishment. The case of Montes v. Chicago Transit Authority was number 15 on the list with a verdict of $6,654,000.00. This case was handled by attorneys Christopher M. Norem and Amanda Martin. The case of Bakopoulos v. Union Pacific Railroad was number 19 on the list of Top 20 Verdicts with a verdict in the amount of $5,445,000.00. The case was handled by attorneys Christopher M. Norem, Amanda Martin, and Matthew Coleman.
The results were reported by “Top Verdict” an organization that varies from other publications as they state on their website, “Unlike other publications, Top Verdict recognizes attorneys and law firms based on historic facts and not on the opinion of others – whether that of peers or a panel of experts. We do not select attorneys; we recognize their specific, factual achievement(s)”.
Montes who was a TSA employee was riding a Blue Line train when the operator fell asleep and the front of the train hit a protective bumper, jumped the platform and ended halfway up O’Hare Interntaional Airport’s escalators. The CTA had previously offered Montes $600,000 and then increased their offer to $2 Million during trial. The jury awarded Montes $6,654,000.00.
Bakopoulos was a 37 year old diesel mechanic for Union Pacific Railroad and was attempting to loosen a fitting while standing in leaking diesel fuel when the fitting broke loose causing him to twist and fall. Union Pacific had made an offer to try and settle with Bakopoulos for $50,000 at the start of trial. The jury awarded Bakopoulos a net verdict of $5,445,000.00.
