苏珊一个. ·卡普拉



苏珊·卡普拉是凯发ag手机版的合伙人, 芝加哥首屈一指的律师事务所之一, serving clients nationally and internationally for decades. Susan concentrates her practice in the area of medical and hospital negligence litigation where she has achieved numerous record settlements and verdicts in her 30-plus years as a highly respected attorney in Chicago, 特别是在卫生保健领域.

Susan joined 凯发ag手机版 as an associate in 1989, becoming partner after 10 years. She graduated from DePaul University with a nursing degree in 1982.  Susan first was a nurse at Children’s Memorial Hospital (now called Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago). She worked largely with infants and children with serious neurological conditions and disabilities. During her last two years as a full-time nurse, she worked in the operating room. Her nursing background has been a tremendous asset in her work as a medical negligence attorney. Susan sums it up appropriately, “As a nurse, I was the patient’s advocate. 作为一名医疗事故律师, I am still the patient’s advocate but in a different arena and profession.”

​Susan graduated from 德保罗大学法学院 in 1990 with Honors. 自从加入凯发ag手机版, Susan handles all types of medical negligence cases but concentrates on cases involving obstetrical, 妇科和儿科疏忽. Some of her career highlights include an $11 million settlement involving a hospital pharmacy that mixed an intravenous solution with excessive amounts of glucose, which was given to a premature newborn who then sustained severe and permanent brain damage as a result and a $10 million settlement on behalf of a mother whose infant suffered severe and permanent brain damage due to negligent obstetrical treatment rendered at a Chicago hospital. 仅仅在过去十年里, Susan has worked on more than two dozen complex obstetrical and gynecological cases, 15 of which have resulted in settlements and verdicts of more than one million dollars and 10 have resulted in settlements and verdicts of more than five million dollars.

苏珊在法律界工作. She is a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), the 美国律师协会 and the 伊利诺斯州 Trial Lawyers Association. She has lectured on various topics involving medical negligence. She has authored articles ranging from the future of hospital peer review to the use of expert witnesses in medical negligence cases.

在过去的几年里, Susan has been recognized as an 伊利诺斯州 Leading Lawyer by Law Bulletin Media (2005 – present), selected to the 伊利诺斯州 Super Lawyers list (2005 to present), Martindale-Hubbell的AV评级, and was part of the list of Most Influential Women Lawyers in Chicago by Crain’s Custom Media (2017). 最近一次是在2020年, she was named by Crain’s Chicago Business on a list of Notable Women in Law in Chicago.

苏珊是芝加哥的终身居民. She is actively involved in her community and volunteers every weekend with various organizations serving senior citizens, 军人和他们的家人, 和贫困的孩子.
