Frank A. Sommario

Attorney

Unlike most injury attorneys, Frank Sommario has been both an advocate and a plaintiff in a personal injury case. Just before he was about to begin his career as a workers’ compensation attorney, he suffered a severe ankle injury that left him in danger of being permanently disabled. That’s when he called upon a personal injury lawyer he had briefly met before—Antonio Romanucci. Thanks to our firm’s work, Frank was able to get the medical care and rehabilitation he needed. Today, you would never be able to tell that Frank had ever suffered an accident at all.

His experience as a plaintiff only deepened Mr. Sommario’s resolve to provide his clients with the support they need to heal from their workplace injuries. He knows that many people aren’t as fortunate as him—people who have lost their cases and received sub-par medical care from their own negligent employer’s insurance company.

For people who work for a living, a severe injury means a lifetime of barely getting by or of clawing out of medical debt. Mr. Sommario is committed to ensuring that this never happens to his clients by providing them with aggressive, thorough, and knowledgeable counsel. As a result, he has won numerous sizable settlements and verdicts, contributing to our firm’s record of $400+ million. For him, helping workers and employees get justice is a privilege and an honor—one that he looks forward to continuing for many years to come.

Mr. Sommario has been recognized and honored by several reputable legal organizations, including the Illinois Super Lawyers® and the Law Bulletin Publishing Company. He continues to work relentlessly on behalf of his clients, whether they have been injured in a construction accident or have suffered as an injury from an industrial incident.
