Corey E. Meyer

 

Chicago injury lawyer Corey Meyer first worked as a clerk for his father, also an attorney, at age nine. He has been a trial attorney representing injured parties his whole legal career of twenty-seven years. His first jury trial lasted two and half weeks and resulted in a $375,000 verdict for the family of a 19 year old who hung himself in a municipal jail; the first verdict of its kind in the country.

He is passionately committed to his work on behalf of injured people and has tried in excess of 100 cases to jury verdict. He was interviewed on CBS Channel 2 News and nationally on Hardcopy in 2001 regarding a medical malpractice case involving the death of two newborn infants, which ultimately settled for $3,000,000. He also has tried and won numerous cases involving severely disabled clients who were the victims of medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, product liability, transportation negligence and violations of civil rights. A recent nursing home case, involving the beating death of a seventy-seven year old resident by another resident, was featured in many national publications, including U.S. News and World Report.
