Legal Innovators.

The Jasmer Law Firm is a recognized leader and innovator in the field of personal injury. Mr. Jasmer has helped achieve several important innovations in the law in major product liability, medical malpractice, and truck crash cases.

Our firm led the charge of exposing the role of driver fatigue in causing truck collisions; we 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. 

Our team also helped create a 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. 

Finally, in a blockbuster product liability case, The Jasmer Law Firm proved that medical device manufacturers must properly warn doctors of the dangers of their products. 

Safety Advocates.

The Jasmer Law Firm has led the way as an expert in negligent hiring and retention by truck companies that put unqualified drivers behind the wheel. We have been at the cutting edge in showing the effect of cell phone usage and onboard computers in distracting drivers’ attention, resulting in crashes. Our analytical acumen and thorough investigation of the facts of each case have repeatedly led to incomparable results.

Passionate about People.

The Jasmer Law Firm cares deeply about our clients and the losses they have suffered, whether it’s facing the realities of living with a catastrophic injury or experiencing the loss of a spouse, parent, or child. That serves as all the motivation we need to fight for them with all our might. We give every client and every case our personalized attention and care. When an accident occurs, the days afterward can feel overwhelming. You can always trust the Jasmer Law Firm to treat you, and your case, with compassion and care.

We specialize in navigating the complexities of significant cases: from the skilled analysis of the data from a semi truck’s electronic control module to understanding the chemical intricacies of propane gas to the interpretation of fetal monitor strips in a birth injury cases.

Meet David Jasmer

Meet David Jasmer

I grew up honing my debate skills around our kitchen table; my dad used to call me a bulldog. He should know: my father was a master litigator and storyteller. Under his mentorship, I began practicing law in 1986. Like my father, I am a true believer in what I do. I love getting to know my clients, and help them through the complexity of their cases.

I believe in maximizing the value of my clients' cases at the bottom line: seeing a case through from beginning to end, from intake to outcome. I pride myself on strategizing carefully at the beginning of every case, considering every angle and understanding all perspectives.

My advice is consistently sought out by other attorneys. I am the primary author for IICLE (Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education), the leading reference in Illinois on motor vehicle accidents. I have written seminal reference chapters on pedestrian accidents, rear end accidents, one car accidents, agency, complaints and answers, closing arguments, and reconstruction experts.

I'm a tenacious fighter in court—but I am also a tactician in the planning stages. By the time your case goes to mediation or court, I will have strategized every possible outcome to ensure the best possible result. I come prepared to outsmart, outwork, and outperform opposing counsel. (As Lau Tzu says: every battle is won or lost before it is ever fought.)

I look forward to speaking with you.
