Chicago, Ill Attorney Matthew Passen knew he had his work cut out for him when he decided to step up to the plate for an elderly couple who had been injured in a car accident. He'd have to get a jury to understand that all his clients' pain and suffering, the torn tissues, all the medical bills, prescription drugs, as well as the visits to doctors and hospitals over the last four years had nothing to do with their age. "It's always difficult to get a jury to understand that elderly people's injuries are due to the accident and not just things that go along with being old," says Passen.
