Joseph Power has obtained more than 200 jury verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 Million, including the largest jury verdict in Illinois history for a medical malpractice case of $55.4 Million and a recovery of $100 Million in a trucking case which led to seventy-six criminal convictions, including the former Governor of Illinois in the “licenses for bribes” scandal, which triggered the retesting of over 2000 truck drivers. He has recovered over $1 Billion for his clients.
Recently, in 2017, Joseph Power and James Power obtained a verdict of $95,477,464.00 for a plaintiff who lost both of his legs when he was working as a truck driver and the cargo he was transporting fell onto him. The day after obtaining that verdict, Joseph Power, Larry Rogers, Jr. and James Power set out on another complex trial and obtained a verdict of $33.4 Million for their clients in a negligent security case against Allied Barton.
