SERVING CLIENTS ACROSS THE MIDWEST & U.S.
From complex, catastrophic matters to injury lawsuits representing the people who need it the most.
A confidential settlement has been reached for the family of a truck driver, who was parked on the shoulder of an interstate highway after the driver’s tractor-trailer broke down. Stephen M. Libman, co-founder, and partner of Burnes Libman Law Group, represented the family of the deceased driver. This settlement, which is close to $18 million, was reached after a week of pre-trial motions just before a jury was selected.
