Healthcare Litigation

Healthcare litigation remains the bedrock of our firm. As medical malpractice litigation becomes more aggressive, hospitals and healthcare providers face an increasingly complex and costly legal landscape. To provide the counsel our clients deserve, we approach our work with knowledge, determination and the fortitude to try the tough cases. We know what’s at stake and stand poised to put our decades of combined experience to work for our healthcare clients, so they can get back to the business of their business.

The HPS Healthcare Litigation Team has defended hospitals, physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers in virtually every field of medicine, often in matters involving catastrophic loss. While most of our healthcare litigation cases involve claims of medical negligence, we also handle other healthcare matters involving nursing homes, laboratories, medical products and devices, EMTALA, physician credentialing and privileges, class actions, employment discrimination.

We have represented many of the premier self-insured hospitals in the Chicago area, as well as national and local hospital insurance programs and trusts. On their behalf, our attorneys have successfully tried numerous eight-figure malpractice matters involving birth trauma, neurologically disabled adults and wrongful death claimants.

In addition to our trial work, we routinely counsel various healthcare providers in an effort to minimize their litigation exposure. Read more about our Healthcare Counseling Team here.
