Michael Haggerty is a partner in the Chicago office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Medical Malpractice, General Liability, Transportation and Long-Term Care & Elder Law Practices. He has represented hospitals, nurses, doctors, therapists and pharmacists at trial.

He has vigorously defended a multitude of corporations and trucking companies that have been sued in general liability and transportation cases. He has also represented various long-term care facilities in medical negligence claims and cases filed pursuant to the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act.

Mr. Haggerty is a trial lawyer. He has tried several cases to verdict. He represents his clients from the pre-suit investigation stage through the post-trial appellate stage. He has successfully argued multiple motions for summary judgment in various jurisdictions, and successfully represented his clients at mediation and arbitration.

He is also a 24/7 Rapid Response On Call Transportation Attorney. He has represented clients in approximately 15 different counties throughout northern, central and southern Illinois.

Mr. Haggerty believes in an ongoing in-depth analysis of each major element in a case from the date of the incident to make a reasoned and rational judgment with respect to the strategy moving forward in a given case.

The standard of care or whether or not a duty was breached, proximate cause, damages and credibility all require a separate evaluation. The Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions that a jury will be instructed on in a particular case should also be considered at the beginning of a case.

Mr. Haggerty has recently received the recognition of being named an Emerging Lawyer by Leading Lawyers for 2015 and 2016. This award is given to the top 2% of lawyers under 40 years old.
