Kristin Esposito and Valeri Nowik Save Insurer Significant Dollars in Cook County Jury Trial
CM attorneys Kristen Esposito and Valeri Nowik recently tried a rear end accident case before a Cook County jury. The insurer offered $50,000 to settle the case. The Plaintiff rejected the offer and demanded $140,000. At trial, the Plaintiff demanded between $250,000 and $350,000. The jury returned a verdict for the Plaintiff but for only $8,000.00 – a fraction of the settlement offer and far less than Plaintiff’s requested damages award. This was Kristin Esposito’s third verdict as a first chair, but first as a defense attorney. It was Valeri Nowik’s first jury trial.
