Born in Chicago, Illinois, Jack Cannon represents clients throughout Cook County. He uses his role as an attorney at Healy Scanlon Law Firm to represent victims of personal injury incidents such as trucking and motor vehicle accidents, and product liability matters. Insurance companies, large corporations and drug manufacturers pose no threat to Mr. Cannon when he takes on a case.
Mr. Cannon’s numbers speak for his incredible work. He successfully has taken more than 100 cases to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, and he obtained a record-setting $23.75 million verdict for a fatal trucking accident. That verdict brought the total amount of money he has secured on behalf of clients over the last four years to more than $40 million.
Behind these numbers are the countless people who have benefited from Mr. Cannon’s work. His background in the construction industry has given him insight into the plight of the injured worker. He is a constant advocate for those he represents in trials and through settlement negotiations. Even outside his practice, he spends his time lecturing labor unions about their rights and teaching peers about personal injury representation.
Raised in Dublin, Ireland, Mr. Cannon is a noted speaker and a published author in the Irish American News and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association. He holds memberships with the Illinois State Bar Association and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, and sits on the board of directors for the Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Association, Ltd.
In 1987, Mr. Cannon earned a Bachelor of Arts from Loyola University Chicago. He then graduated with a law degree from The John Marshall Law School in 1993.
