Mr. Terence Naughton (“Terry”) is a Chicago personal injury trial attorney who represents seriously injured individuals in wrongful death, product liability, construction negligence, workplace accidents, premises liability, and transportation negligence cases – including trucking, automobile, bicycle, bus, ride-share and motorcycle crash cases. Terry joined Krzak Rundio Law Group in the fall of 2019.
Before joining Krzak Rundio Law Group, Terry worked for a preeminent, well-respected Chicago-based insurance defense firm where he defended construction companies, general contractors, subcontractors, and owners in construction litigation involving personal injury, construction defects, and breach of contract claims. He has handled claims in both state and federal courts. Additionally, he has served as both first and second chair in jury trials that went to verdict in the Law Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County.
Terry’s time on the defense side and knowledge of how the “other side” defends serious injury cases gives his personal injury clients an edge. His experience gives him a unique perspective in evaluating and preparing cases for victims of negligent companies and individuals. Coupling that experience with his extensive knowledge of insurance coverage issues gives the clients he represents in personal injury cases an advantage. His in-depth knowledge of the insurance claims process allows him to skillfully navigate the complexities of insurance law in order to obtain full compensations for his injured clients.
The results Terry has achieved since coming over to the Plaintiff’s side speak for themselves. Since joining Krzak Rundio Law Group, LLC in 2019, he has been involved in recovering well over $20,000,000 for injury victims. Some highlights include – a $9,200,000 settlement arising out of a truck crash; a $2,200,000 settlement for a young man struck by a motor vehicle in an auto repair shop; and a $2,000,000 settlement relating to the death of a child that occurred in an apartment complex.
Terry was born and raised in Chicago’s Southside. He obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. He earned his law degree from Valparaiso School of Law. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, American Bar Association and the Justinian Society of Lawyers. He is licensed to practice in Illinois along with the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois.
If he wasn’t practicing law, Terry would likely be out practicing his golf swing. On the weekends he enjoys spending time with his friends and family and exploring the great City of Chicago. Krzak Rundio Law Group is proud to call Terry a part of the team.
