Type of Case: Mass Transit Accident (Metra) Result: $2.1 million dollars “I was in a Metra Train Accident in September 2005, and I hired Mark Horwitz as my lawyer. My experience with Mark has been wonderful. He’s very considerate. He’s caring. Every time he calls me, the first thing that he says is, how are you feeling and how is your family, and I really, really appreciate that. If I didn’t have Mark Horwitz as my lawyer, I think I’d be lost. I don’t think any other lawyer would give me the information that I needed to feel comfortable that the case is moving in the right direction.” – Marie B. The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin released an article detailing the $2.1 million settlement for Marie shortly after it was announced.
Former Chicago Police Officer Type of Injury: Premises Liability Accident Resulting in Below the Knee Amputation Result: $1,400,000.00 “After all my experiences with attorneys, Mark Horwitz was one of the finest attorneys I’ve ever met.

And I would definitely, without question, recommend him to anyone who needs a professional, qualified attorney because he’s the guy.” – Charles Brown
Type of Injury: Personal Injury Initial Offer: $50,000.00 Jury Verdict:$1,197,000.00 Johnnie B. W. Jr. was a professional basketball player back in the 1970s. In 2002 while getting off a CTA red line train, the trainman closed the doors on Mr. Williams while he was exiting the train. At the time, Mr. Williams was wearing a backpack that became lodged in the doors. The train began to move and Mr. W. ran along the platform until the train’s speed prevented him from doing so. At that time, Mr. W. lost his footing and his long legs began striking the platform while he fought to free himself of the train’s doors and/or his backpack. In the process of doing so, Mr. W. fractured a bone in his wrist. Luckily he was able to free himself of the doors just before the car reached the end of the platform. Mr. W. went to several law firms who refused to take his case holding that he was at fault for his own injuries. Mr. W. then came to see Mark J. Horwitz, of The Horwitz Law Group. Mr. Horwitz instantly filed suit against the CTA and began an investigation to obtain information regarding any…
Type of Injury: Personal Injury Final Offer: $75,000.00 Final Judgment: $100,000.00 On October 7, 2007, Ms. Bogan was driving her automobile on Interstate 57 when she noticed a car stopped in one of the moving lanes. When she looked to see what was happening, she saw a man slumped over his steering wheel who was not moving. Being a good Samaritan, Ms. Bogan parked her vehicle in front of the disabled vehicle and got out to see if the driver of that car needed assistance. After determining that the man was not conscious, Ms. Bogan called the Illinois State Police. The police arrived and told Ms. Bogan to get back into her car. While going between the two cars, the man suddenly awoke, hit his gas and crushed Ms. Bogan between the vehicles. Ms. Bogan’s leg was nearly severed from her body. It turned out that the man causing the accident had no auto insurance. Mr. Horwitz then had to file an uninsured motorist claim with Ms. Bogan’s own insurance company who initially found Ms. Bogan at fault for her own injuries. After fighting and threatening to file a vexatious delay and bad faith claim against Ms. Bogan’s own insurance…

The child had gone under the car to retrieve a Mr. Potato Head doll that had rolled under the car. The father, not knowing his son was under the car, started it and backed down the driveway.

Luckily, his son survived but had both legs broken as well as damage to his skull. “Mark J. Horwitz of The Horwitz Law Group took care of us as though we were family.

Type of Injury: Car Accident Final Offer: $60,000.00 Final Judgment: $175,000.00 Rosetta Glover was a passenger in her husband’s car traveling on Martin Luther King Drive. A cab came around their car and made a sudden U turn in front of them causing the accident. Ms. Glover sustained an injury to her shoulder which required an immediate surgery. She hired another Chicago lawyer who obtained a settlement offer from the cab company for $60,000.00 and told Ms. Glover to accept it despite the fact her shoulder continued to give her problems. Ms. Glover then contacted Mark J. Horwitz of The Horwitz Law Group. Mr. Horwitz filed suit and litigated against the cab company for nearly three years. During that time, it was determined that Ms. Glover required an additional surgery on her shoulder. The case was set and ready to proceed to trial in October of 2008. Facing trial and a certain verdict, the cab company offered $175,000.00 on the day of trial and the case settled for $115,000.00 more than the original attorneys wanted Ms. Glover to settle her case for.

My daughter was severely injured in a car accident and I was nervous about finding a personal injury attorney, but from the start, I felt confident with my choice in the Horwitz Law Group. Mark was completely professional, trustworthy, communicative, honest and helpful. He kept my daughter focused throughout her entire recovery, both emotionally and medically. He was extremely attentive and responsive answering each and every question I had in a timely manner and explained everything in laymen terms - always keeping me informed of every step along the way. Mark was honest with us and didn't make outlandish promises but most of all he wanted what was best for my daughter and not just a paycheck. He and his team were instrumental in saving us huge amounts in medical bills as well as garnering a settlement award that was very much welcomed. Not only did they resolve the case beyond our satisfaction, they also were very caring and supportive thru my daughter's recovery. I couldn't ask for a better attorney and I couldn't recommend him more. It is my hope that I will never need legal representation again, but should I find that I do Mark J Horwitz will…
