Results-driven lead attorney Mark Maritote has obtained jury verdicts throughout Illinois for more than 30 years. Maritote has jury verdicts in cases large and small from Pittsfield, to Waukegan, Illinois. Because of his breadth of experience, he is called upon to lecture on trial practice and preparation.
These verdicts include the first medical malpractice judgment in Morgan County, the record injury verdict in Mason County, what was once the record jury verdict for the death of a grandmother in Cook County, Illinois. His recent successes include $500,000 and $1.7M judgments on behalf of a landscaper injured in a low speed trucking accident and an ICU nurse whose doctor ignored her cancer.
Workplace injuries can be among the most devastating a family can suffer. Loss of income for a sustained period can wreak havoc on the finances of those who not only live paycheck to paycheck, but also those who thought they were economically secure. Workers’ Compensation is designed to provide partial compensation for those injured at work. However it has been under constant attack by insurance companies who refuse to pay compensation or provide medical care to those injured while working. We represent injured workers in claims at the Workers’ Compensation Commission, at no fee unless compensation is awarded.
In addition to taking on insurance companies in injury claims of all types and sizes, Mark Maritote and Maritote Law prepare and try claims on behalf of individuals and small businesses. They also represent those against individuals and small businesses who are being sued for breach of contract or wrongful conduct. For example, the firm obtained a $150,000 judgment on behalf of a man libeled on Facebook. The firm’s most recent trial resulted in a defense verdict for an immigrant couple accused of fraud in the sale of a house.
