Molly Pankauskas concentrates her practice on the defense of medical malpractice claims against hospitals, medical professionals, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare providers. She has handled cases involving delay in diagnosis, improper surgical technique, informed consent, inappropriate treatment plan, falls, wound care, and stroke medicine.
Molly appreciates the challenge of analyzing complex medicine and works to identify critical but often overlooked issues within the medical claims facing her clients. Managing many moving pieces is a vital component of her practice, and she works to put all those pieces together in a way that will achieve a successful outcome on behalf of the hospitals and healthcare providers she represents.
Prior to joining HPS, Molly practiced medical malpractice and long-term care defense at Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP.
Following law school, Molly worked as a Medical Prosecutor at the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. There, she gained valuable insight into the administrative and regulatory processes governing physician licensure, which now inform her current practice.
During law school, Molly was the Editor-in-Chief of the DePaul University College of Law’s Journal of Health Care Law.
