Law Firm Overview
The Jasmer Law Firm is one of the premier personal injury law firms in the country. The firm's principal, David S. Jasmer, helped achieve a record-shattering $20 million settlement on behalf of a 23-year-old newly married young woman who suffered complete paraplegia as the result of a collision with an 18-wheel UPS semi tractor-trailer on the highway-a case which set the gold standard for truck crash litigation. Mr. Jasmer helped obtain a $30 million settlement against a national gas company for a 33 y.o. construction worker burned over 95% of his body by a propane gas explosion. Mr. Jasmer helped secure a $21 million verdict for a 55 y.o. woman who was severely brain injured by the disconnection of an IV catheter connector manufactured by a major medical device manufacturer. The Jasmer Law Firm recently attained a partial settlement of $1.3 million for a 17 y.o. young man who was profoundly brain injured when his car was struck by a U-Haul rental truck. Overall, Mr. Jasmer has helped achieve over $80 million in verdicts and settlements.
A Leader in Catastrophic Injury and Wrongful Death Cases
The Jasmer Law Firm is recognized as a leader and innovator in the field of personal injury. The Jasmer Law Firm has been at the forefront of exposing the role of driver fatigue in causing truck collisions and has pioneered the use of innovative discovery techniques to prove that a fatality or severe injury was caused by a truck driver falling asleep at the wheel. Mr. Jasmer's ingenuity and skill helped create new law in medical negligence cases to overcome a hospital's claim that it has "lost" critical medical records--law instrumental to winning cases for victims of malpractice. In a blockbuster product liability case, Mr. Jasmer helped convince the Illinois Supreme Court that medical device manufacturers must properly warn doctors of the dangers of their products. Mr. Jasmer has helped achieve important innovations in the law in major product liability, medical malpractice, and truck crash cases.

Praised by the Best
As one hard-to-please colleague of Mr. Jasmer's, one of the leading trial attorneys in the State, recently remarked after Mr. Jasmer's brief succeeded against seemingly impossible odds in defeating a truck company's attempt to do away with the entire case, "That's the most brilliant brief I've ever read. You took every argument made by the other side and turned it on its head, like jiu jitsu."
During the course of recent settlement negotiations in a truck crash case overseen by the former Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Mr. Jasmer's colleague, himself one of the leading litigators in the country with 40 years of experience, told the Judge that, "David is the smartest lawyer I know."
