Less than 30% of medical malpractice victims in Cook County win their cases, according to the Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter. This is partially because of the prejudice that tort reformer proponents and insurance carriers have created in the public, polluting jurors with many anti-truths. That's why you need to hire the right attorney for your case. At Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P., we meet this prejudice head-on in jury selections and during trial. In addition, we only pursue meritorious cases, establishing a reputation for integrity. For this reason, our medical malpractice clients prevail.
