Knowledgeable Chicago Accident and Injury Lawyer
Chicago injury attorney Jon Papin, a partner of Cogan & Power, P.C., has more than 20 years’ experience as a highly successful medical malpractice and personal injury lawyer, representing victims of birth injury, medical malpractice, commercial trucking accidents, and construction disasters.
Jon’s exemplary advocacy skills and zealous attention to detail have garnered him numerous record-breaking verdicts and settlements totaling almost $100 million. Jon immerses himself in each case, often finding the hidden gems that can turn a case around. He obtained a $13 million settlement, for example, in a case where the defendant trucking company had testified under oath that it had only $5 million in insurance coverage. Jon’s independent investigation uncovered an additional $6 million in coverage as well as damaging evidence against the truck driver. Because of his skill and determination, Jon settled the case for $8 million more than the claimed insurance coverage, with the defendant paying $2 million of that amount out of pocket.
