Kim’s MacCloskey’s Story
Kim MacCloskey’s legal journey began with tragedy. He knows what it’s like to be injured and he knows what to do about it.
Tragedy into Triumph
On October 14, 1954, my family and I were the victims of a gas explosion in our home on Rockton Avenue in Rockford, Illinois. My father, mother and I were severely burned. On November 7, 1954, my mother died as a result of her injuries. My father was burned so badly that he was unable to return to work at the Ingersoll Milling Machine Company. My father hired a local lawyer to obtain the compensation which we deserved from the gas and electric company responsible for causing the explosion. The case was settled out of court. That experience has had a profound effect on my life and on my perspective in prosecuting injury claims. Every day of my life, I know what it’s like to be severely injured. In over twenty years of practicing personal injury law, I have gained the experience and knowledge to know how to represent my clients effectively and obtain full and fair compensation them. It is this blend of personal history and professional experience that uniquely positions me to practice personal injury law. I vowed long ago to handle each case the same way I would want my case handled if I was the client. I believe I have done just that.
