Jack J. Casciato of Curcio & Casciato is a plaintiffs’ personal injury and wrongful death trial attorney. Jack has had numerous newsworthy and record results that have been covered by local and national media outlets including a $52.5 million settlement on behalf of eight Ringling Bros. acrobats that were severely injured in a set collapse, a $18.15 million verdict on behalf of a 17-year-old critically injured when he was hit by a truck, an $18 million settlement on behalf of a man injured on a job site, a $13 million dollar settlement on behalf of a man injured during a recreational activity, a $7 million settlement for a woman that was struck in a crosswalk by a commercial vehicle, a $6.2 million settlement for an injured construction worker, a confidential record settlement for a wrongful death case in Knox County, Illinois, a record $7.25m settlement against a rural hospital for negligent care, and a record $4m settlement for a hip fracture involving a forklift collision. 

Prior to working as a plaintiffs’ attorney, Jack spent the first 7 years of his career defending personal injury cases on behalf of insurance companies. Jack’s prior time on the defense side provides him with a unique, insider advantage into the strategies and tactics insurance companies and corporations take in their defense.

Every Spring since 2018, Jack has been invited to serve as a lecturer in Europe for the Pan European Organization for Personal Injury Lawyers on various aspects of American personal injury litigation and jurisprudence which has taken him to England, Ireland, Italy and Spain. Jack is also a regular columnist for the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin where he authors articles on all areas of personal injury litigation. Cases that Jack has handled have been covered by national media outlets such as CNN, Fox News, NBC, and ABC. 

Jack’s practice is focused on representing victims of trucking accidents, medical and nursing home malpractice, construction accidents, products liability, work site accidents, and car accidents. Jack believes that the center of a successful case is first building a strong attorney-client relationship with the countless personal injury and wrongful death clients he has represented successfully through the judicial process. When he is not practicing law, Jack gives back to the legal community through pro bono projects and is a member of Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital’s Innovator Board.
