HOW WE WORK
At Pfaff, Gill & Ports, we have over 50 years of experience in prosecuting medical malpractice, products liability and serious personal injury cases in Chicago, the surrounding areas and throughout the State of Illinois. Our practice model starts with an initial interview usually involving both lawyers who will be assigned to the case to meet with a perspective new client. We evaluate whether we think we can help the client. If we do, we accept responsibility and then commence getting all the records that we need on a case. If it’s a product’s case: to evaluate the product, obtained the product and see it and examined very carefully. I know if you’re calling my firm that something horrible’s happened to you or a loved one and our job, our goal is to help you through that horrible time as best we can. You can count on us to do that.
Pfaff, Gill & Ports has always done a lot of product liability cases. We handle industrial products, consumer product cases and automotive products… the whole range. At Pfaff, Gill & Ports, we prosecute products liability cases against major auto manufacturers, industrial equipment makers, construction equipment manufacturers, motorcycle helmet manufacturers and many many more. For example, we’ve handled cases against Ford Motor Company involving the Explorer for unsafe seats or involving in other automobiles for seat designs. Those designs are in the millions of products and if there is an unsafe product out there that could cause millions of harms. So we understand that by successfully prosecuting a design defect case for example we can lead to a broader societal good than merely helping one client.
When someone comes to us with a potential medical malpractice case, we’ll review the records. With our wealth of experience and prosecuting these cases, often times we’ll be able to tell you whether or not we can help you right away. Our goal is to give you an answer as soon as we can. If we can’t tell and if we need an expert to review the case, that’s the next step. If an expert believes that your case has merit, we’ll file your case, we’ll prosecute it to trial if necessary and beyond until you have a full and final recovery. Our commitment to our clients is to understand what happened in the case and to make sure that we can prove their case. We love it when we can do a broader public good for the client such as removing a doctor who’s bad from the hospital staff, such as removing an unsafe product from the marketplace things such as that. That’s a side benefit of what we do that we take very seriously and our clients really appreciate it.
