The Chicago, Illinois based Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C. is pleased to announce their latest court victory, where the relatives of the affected party were awarded $18.6 million.
The compensation was granted to the wife of a Canadian truck driver, who lost his life after a collision with a tractor-trailer while performing his job. The widow was represented by Christopher M. Norem and Cole H. Munvez, attorneys from the Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C.
The deceased's spouse filed a lawsuit in February 2016 against the also-deceased driver of the tractor-trailer as well as the company he owned and drove for, Antioch Transport Inc., and C.H. Robinson, alleging negligence, wrongful death, vicarious liability, negligent hiring, and survival action claims against the defendants.
After years of trials and sessions, the jury found that due to the fact that the driver was a legal agent of C.H. Robinson, they were legally responsible for the crash. The final verdict was given this past May, where they bestowed Natalia Volkova, spouse of the deceased, with the aforementioned amount, of which she will recover $15 million following a high-low agreement the lawyers entered into after closing arguments.
This is only the most recent court victory that the attorneys at the Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C. have achieved. The company affirms that they have successfully won hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of personal injury, wrongful death, and workers’ compensation.

Many times, it's a work injury, where they are too afraid to make a claim due to fear of losing their job, without knowing that they are protected by the law in these cases. This puts them in a dire situation, where they may end up with high amounts of money in debt due to the medical bills which should also be completely taken care of."
