|On September 30, 2021, the 1st District Appellate Court issued its ruling in favor of a young woman who was hit by a car and suffered life-altering brain injuries. In affirming the trial court’s decision to keep the case in Cook County where it was originally filed, the Appellate Court called out the defendant driver for arguing that Cook County was inconvenient for him. It was discovered that he traveled to Cook County nearly fifty times over two years to attend Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, and Bears games.|
“Justice was served today,” says Brian Lewis, Managing Partner of The Lewis Law Firm. “The trial and appellate courts properly applied the law. They saw through the insurance company’s disingenuous assertion that it was inconvenient for its insured driver to attend a trial in Cook County despite regularly coming to Cook County for work and pleasure.”
The case is set for trial in Cook County in 2022.
