Joseph A. Power Jr. Larry R. Rogers Sr.

No. 98 L 3127
– Joseph A. Power Jr., Larry R. Rogers Jr.

Joseph A. Power, Jr., as lead counsel, with the assistance of Larry Rogers, Jr., represented a Chicago family that lost six children in a fiery Wisconsin car crash in 1994 caused by an unqualified truck driver. Investigations prompted by the tragedy and lawsuit revealed widespread corruption, whereby the Secretary of State’s staff exchanged licenses for bribes that went to the campaign of George Ryan. These federal investigations triggered Operation Safe Road, which required retesting for over 2,000 drivers using tainted licenses and netted 76 convictions, including that of former Governor of Illinois George Ryan. Joseph Power and Larry Rogers, Jr. obtained a record $100 million settlement for personal injury and wrongful death for a single-family.

His right knee was amputated above the knee, and after his left leg developeda fungal infection, the doctors had to amputate that one above the kneeas well. The jury awarded the Plaintiff $83,477,464 and his wife $12 million for a total of $95,477,464.
