We represent injured plaintiffs who have been the victims of medical malpractice, product liability, premises liability, and trucking and auto negligence. We have a reputation for handling many high-profile, difficult, or novel cases and obtaining record jury verdicts and settlements in Illinois. We employ focus groups to understand jury beliefs and perceptions on liability and damage issues. We enjoy a reputation for hiring the leading expert witnesses to testify in court. I founded the Lloyd Law Group in 2008.Example cases
• $9.7 million recovery against HMO primary care physician, despite referral to obstetrician, which was novel case of first impression in Illinois. Thomas v. Anthony, MD.
• $2.3 million recovery against IV Drug package manufacturer for failure to add "additional" warning labels to avoid medication error, mix-up. Magdziarz v. Cardinal Health. This theory set the precedent for the Dennis Quaid case involving nursing mix-up of heparin drugs given to his newborn twins at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Los Angeles, CA.

Personal injury practice, including medical malpractice, involves understanding medicine and dealing with physicians which is interesting. How injuries and medicine inter-relate to achieve a good outcome is challenging.
