David Hall concentrates his practice in various areas of healthcare litigation, particularly those matters involving catastrophic loss. Most of his cases involve brain-damaged infants, neurologically disabled adults, disfigured patients, and wrongful death claimants. He has also litigated and tried numerous other healthcare matters involving physician credentialing, medical device product liability, employment discrimination, and nursing home litigation. His litigation and trial experience also includes various transportation litigation matters including those involving aviation and maritime accidents. Notably, David has tried to verdict more than 100 cases, most of which were pending in Cook County, Illinois. The vast majority of those trials involved cases having seven or eight-figure exposure.
