McLean County Car Was T-Boned By Semi-Truck

$1,500,000

Mr. Patel and his aggressive personal injury trial team represented a young, high school aged boy who was severely injured in a car accident in which he was a passenger.  Rather than simply settling for the auto policy, Mr. Patel successfully pursued the defendant’s personal assets in excess of the car insurance limits resulting in obtaining an actual, collected amount of $1,500,000.  The money will be escrowed for Mr. Patel’s minor client’s future needs.  This is evidence of Mr. Patel’s aggressive and determined approach to get the maximum results for his clients, not settling on anything less.
