Our VerdictsMr. Wine’s Verdict

April 4, 2017

Mr. Wine defended Alexadra Bochis at a jury trial arising from a personal injury suit filed against her by Enrico Alberti. The case was tried on February 14, 2017 before Judge Desierto in the Circuit Court of Cook County. The case arose from an auto accident of December 14, 2012 at the intersection of Forest Preserve Drive and Overhill Ave in Chicago. The crash happened when Mr. Alberti turned left from Forest Preserve Drive onto Overhill while Ms. Bochis drove in the opposite direction of Forest Preserve Drive. The collision was heavy and Mr. Alberti alleged he lost two teeth requiring a permanent bridge together with neck and back injuries. He presented to the jury $10,000 in medical bills and his lawyer urged the jury to add $15,000 for his pain and suffering and $5,000 for loss of a normal life. Mr. Wine emphasized that Mr. Alberti had an obligation to yield because he made a left turn and that Ms. Bochis had no time to avoid the collision. The jury took only forty-five minutes for deliberation and returned a verdict in favor of Ms. Bochis
