Michael Wierzbicki, a partner at Horwitz Horwitz & Associates​ who focuses on commercial trucking and transportation litigation, recently recovered a favorable settlement for a 68-year-old woman who was hit by a dump truck while crossing the street in downtown Chicago. As a result, the elderly woman suffered a leg crush injury, which required an above-the-knee amputation.

The $9,000,000.00 settlement came from multiple defendants including both trucking and construction companies. "This horrible incident could and should have been avoided entirely," stated Wierzbicki. Wierzbicki continued, "No amount of money can give her back the walks she went on with her grandchildren, playing with them in the park. But she is thankful that despite her injuries and loss, the defendants learned a lesson and will work to protect innocent people from being hurt in the future."

Well known for his in-depth knowledge of construction industry standards and practices, Jay Luchsinger spent 14 years erecting many of the iconic buildings we know and love today before earning his law degree. As Jay says it, "I'm an ironworker first, and a lawyer second."

The Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) utilized Jay's cross examination of a safety expert in Bayer v. Panduit in their most recent publication.

Luchsinger, a lead trial attorney and Partner at Horwitz Horwitz & Associates, utilized textbook cross techniques, refreshment of recollection, and impeachment in the cross examination.
