Medical Malpractice Defense

The medical malpractice defense team at Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd., is composed of trial attorneys with decades of experience in every field of medicine. We understand that to obtain the best outcomes for our clients, we must always be prepared to stand before a jury and present our defense. Our attorneys are detail-oriented and strategy-driven. We work relentlessly to provide solutions to complex medical cases.

Our talented team delivers successful results through dedication and persistence. It begins with the initial client interview and continues through dissecting the medical records and wringing out each meaningful fact, then into the discovery process; writing and arguing persuasive motions, retaining well-qualified experts, taking thorough depositions of opponents and treaters, preparing clients exhaustively for their depositions, engaging in settlement negotiations where appropriate, and ultimately, defending the case at trial. We use the latest courtroom technology to explain complex medical issues to jurors so they can make educated decisions based upon facts, not sympathy.

HSPRD attorneys represent medical institutions, insurance companies, physicians of every specialty, nurses, dentists and virtually all medical professionals. We represent medical professionals not only in court but before the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) in matters related to medical licenses, such as censure and suspension.

We recognize the importance of keeping clients well informed and responding to them in a timely and meaningful manner. We have established longstanding relationships with our institutional clients and understand the stress lawsuits place on them and on the practitioners. Our team works diligently to earn our clients’ trust and does not take it for granted.  Once earned, it must be maintained.
