Tomasik Kotin Kasserman Obtains $212,000 Verdict For Chicago Police Officer Injured In The Line Of Duty

 Posted on August 16, 2019 in Personal Injury

Cook County police officer lawyerJames P. McKay and Philip P. Terrazzino obtained a $212,000 verdict for Chicago Police Officer Yvette Lozano for injuries she sustained in an automobile collision while in the line of duty. Following a trial at the Daley Center in front of Judge Ann Collins-Dole, a Cook County jury reached the verdict in favor of Officer Lozano.

On August 28, 2015 at 10:15a.m., Officer Lozano was responding to a home invasion in progress with her lights and sirens activated when her squad car was struck by a driver who failed to stop and pull to the right as required by statute. As a result of the crash, Officer Lozano sustained a right elbow injury and vertigo. She missed one year of work due to her injuries. 

After undergoing a long recovery and intense physical therapy, she returned to work with the Chicago Police Department and now works in an office role. “We are pleased that justice prevailed and that Officer Lozano will be compensated for her medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering,” Terrazzino said.  “It took four years and a two-week jury trial, but the jury system got it right in the end.”
