Making a Difference


A call comes out of the blue. Your elderly but vibrant parents have been seriously injured in a car accident, and both are clinging to life in a remote hospital. Your brothers and spouses rally support. You put your lives on hold for months while you care for the mother and father who cared for you. Despite a valiant struggle, and the uncommon devotion of a special family, your Father slips away. Your Mother survives but faces a lonely and uneasy future. The tranquility of your world has been shattered. As you all search for healing, justice emerges as the essential first step.

The privilege of helping this remarkable family fell to Pat Flaherty, Maggie Mayer CP and his partners at Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C. They fought rentlessly to identify the wrongdoers and to establish the legal responsibilty corporate entities sought to avoid. Once they were cornered, once the evidence became insurmountable, they capitulated. They recognized the pain and suffering they imposed and the specialness they destroyed. A $9.5 million award will stand as validation of the family’s loss and of its commitment to making a difference. Corporate practices will change because of their courage, and society will be a little safer.

Making change possible, giving people a voice, and holding corporate wrongdoers accountable is a lifelong commitment for Pat Flaherty and Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C. If you or a loved one need help, please contact our firm by calling 630-907-0909. They would be honored to fight for you and for your family.
