        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        LeadingLawyers Magazine recently published their Consumer Edition for 2016, featuring an article on Clifford and Mitchell Horwitz!

        The article titled, “The Horwitz Brothers – They’re Far Smarter Than the Average Bear – and Lawyer” takes a look into the development of not only the brothers’ unique focuses in injury and workers’ compensation law, but also the unique legal strategies they have developed along the way – strategies that shed light on how devoted they are to helping those who have been injured in Illinois.

        We are proud to congratulate Clifford Horwitz, Mitchell Horwitz, Marc Perper, Wayne Newman, Jay Luchsinger, Michael Wierzbicki and Michael Carter, seven partners at our firm, who have been honored by their peers as Leading Lawyers, a distinction earned by fewer than five percent of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois. We also are proud to congratulate Tyler Berberich who was selected as an Emerging Lawyer – a distinction earned by less than 2% of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois.

        We are especially excited to congratulate Mitchell Horwitz, who earned the honor of being listed as one of the Top 10 Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Illinois. Mitch was voted No. 6 – moving up 4 spots from last year – through a survey of his peers conducted by LeadingLawyers.

        What Juries Do Not Know – The Truth About Insurance and Trial Lawyers

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        What Juries Do Not Know

        99% of trials in personal injury cases are about insurance.  What juries do not know, is that the true battle is between the injured individual and the insurance carrier who represents an individual or corporation who is being sued.  The jury is led to believe that the Defendant is an individual or a corporation, but the case is really about his insurance policy and the insurance company… and the droves of attorneys for the insurance company who will fight not to compensate fairly and pay what’s due.

        The Season of Slip and Fall Injuries

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        A winter wonderland can quickly produce conditions that result in slip and fall accidents. Injuries, from falling on wet floors from snow tracked in by customers of retail stores skyrocket. But you’ll be surprised to learn how limited the liability is for store owners when falls on ice and water occur on their property.

        While it is in the best interests of retailers to make their stores accessible to the public during the winter months in a manner that’s both convenient and safe, Illinois law usually does not require a store owner, retailer, corporation or individual to pay any damages or medical bills for injuries due to falls on ice and snow and/or trampled in water.

        When it comes to injuries that occur on private property, whether it’s a neighboring home or a commercial retail store and parking lot, the public is widely misinformed about the owner’s responsibility and liability. Just because you fell on ice in a Wal-Mart store entrance or in their parking lot, for example, does not make Wal-Mart liable for your injuries.
