Round Lake Beach Dragging Case

Our firm represented the victim and his family in the well-known Round Lake Beach dragging case. In this case, a girlfriend and boyfriend were involved in a heated argument resulting in a motor vehicle assault on the boyfriend. The woman ran over the victim and dragged him for almost 2 miles. Local newspapers tagged her as the "Draggin' Lady." Our firm filed a claim for $25 million and has been featured in local news stories for our successful representation in this high-profile case.

Elevator Repairman Wage Differential Case

Wage differential cases can be difficult, even for seasoned attorneys. Attorney Balke & Williams successfully recovered wage differential benefits for an elevator repairman who fell and suffered serious injuries and was thereafter permanently restricted from certain job activities. He received $1 million in total recovery and an additional $200,000 for wage differential and personal injury benefits to be extended through his lifetime.
