On February 13, Meyers & Flowers trial attorneys Peter Flowers and Frank Cesarone secured a $43,500,000 jury verdict for the premature and unnecessary end to former Philadelphia Eagles team captain Christopher Maragos' NFL career due to the improper care of his knee injury by his medical team.
Look around attorney Ted A. Meyers’ office and you’ll see why the legal profession means so much to him. On one wall you’ll see the faces of Ted’s great uncle, grandfather, uncle and father, all of whom were attorneys. Being fourth-generation is something Ted says is great, especially in how it offers a perspective on how he performs his job.
A partner in the firm of Meyers & Flowers, Pete has represented countless families whose lives have been tragically changed because of medical malpractice, catastrophic injuries from workplace injuries and automobile accidents, and from defective products. His attention to the special needs of those clients comes from a strong sense of loyalty to them and a shared desire to assure no one else experiences their pain.
Craig D. Brown worked as a Cook County prosecutor which proved insightful, as Craig recognized the importance of representing people in need of justice and the devastating effects crime can have on victims. As a personal injury trial lawyer, Craig continues to use that perspective in his practice, representing clients who have been the victims of severe traumatic injuries, wrongful death, product liability and medical negligence.

Meyers & Flowers
When medical devices don't work as promised, we're here to help.
A friend recommended Meyers & Flowers. Now I am recommending them. They achieved a very fair settlement on a failed hip implant in a short period of time. They were courteous, respectful and kept me informed. They always had time to listen.
George, Hip Implant Client
We have much to be thankful for this festive season. A great portion of this is from having you and yours overseeing our legal affairs. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and greatly appreciate your continued efforts. God Bless you all and as I say, I am blessed.
Maria, Stryker Rejuvenate Client
Our clients include thousands who have been injured by medical products
These include defective hip and knee replacement joints including the Stryker Modular Rejuvenate and ABG II Femoral Hip Implants; as well as hip replacement devices from DePuy Orthopaedics of Johnson & Johnson, PROFEMUR, Wright Medical Technology and Zimmer, Inc., in addition to medications such as Invokana and Xarelto.
While we are headquartered in Chicago, we have successfully taken on Big Pharma and other international corporations that are responsible for injuries caused by their products. We are considered a top Chicago law firm because we are not intimidated by these giant corporations. Our attorneys at Meyers & Flowers have the internal resources to fully document the consequences of the injury to our client and to establish which entity must bear the burden of providing substantial and relevant compensation.
One of the services we provide to our clients is that of buffer between the incident response team of attorneys and our client. Offers to settle early in the negotiation process is a sign that the opposition hopes to avoid a trial and the much larger award that is likely to awarded by a jury. At Meyers & Flowers, we evaluate these offers against the needs of our client, including future needs, and advise accordingly. Taking on the role of advocate for our client means that we bear the brunt of the often aggressive negotiating that is done in these cases.
Since our Chicago lawyers have a reputation for winning large awards and settlements for our clients nationwide, our negotiating power is considerable. We have been successful due to our hard work in meticulously preparing our cases for trial, and our policy of forwarding the lawsuit to trial as quickly as possible. We don’t allow the other side to slow the process with meaningless legal tactics.

Bringing justice and fair compensation to the people of Chicago.
As a Top Chicago Attorney Law Firm
Meyers & Flowers have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for clients who would otherwise be limited to insurance policy limits which are usually woefully inadequate to fully handle medical and other costs.
Our trial attorneys in Chicago are supported by a highly skilled team of paralegals, expert witnesses, top financial consultants and medical professionals. This team approach is what makes Meyers & Flowers stand out from the competition, in that preparation is comprehensive and fast. Our Chicago personal injury lawyers and Chicago car accident lawyers understand that many of our clients are not only suffering from a personal injury but are also having to deal with a reduction in income.
Get Full & Meaningful Compensation
Meyers & Flowers attracts clients from all over America due to our reputation for relentlessly achieving meaningful compensation for victims of corporate and institutional negligence. As a top Chicago law firm, we also attract the best lawyers in Chicago, paralegals, expert consultants and clerical staff. The combined talent of our team enables our clients to succeed against huge corporate litigation teams with unlimited finances and every reason to delay proceedings. We are a powerful force, fully focused on vigorously pursuing financial compensation for our clients who are dealing with life changing injuries or losses.
We enjoy the challenge of obtaining full compensation for our clients and their families. This comes in part from operating with the knowledge that our adversaries are primarily focused on reducing the financial impact a proper financial award will have on their client’s financial statements. One common tactic is to offer a settlement early on in the proceedings, which appears fairly generous.
Early settlement offers almost always fall short of the true financial impact an injury and loss will have on our clients’ lives going forward. These offers are made quickly to take advantage of the sudden financial and emotional stress that an injury or death will have on a family. Understanding and countering the tactics employed by large corporations and institutions is one of the many reasons why we are considered among the best lawyers in Chicago.
Each year, Meyers & Flowers brings positive outcomes to many individuals and families whose lives changed due to catastrophic injury, medical negligence, defective products or workplace injury.
We prepare every case very aggressively, pushing the other side to respond to our demands and effectively setting the stage for successful settlement negotiations. Part of our power stems from our stellar record of wins, as well as our policy of preparing each case for trial regardless of the opposition’s assurances of impending settlement offers.
Our expert accountants and lifestyle consultants fully understand the current and future needs of our clients who have endured physical or mental injuries due to negligence. Our top trial attorneys are well versed in communicating these financial requirements clearly, both in settlement negotiations and, if necessary, during trial. In cases of wrongful death, we’re experts at exposing the true financial impact visited on a family by the loss of a loved one, particularly the primary income earner. Successfully making the case for meaningful compensation requires the full force of the top Chicago law firm of Meyers & Flowers, particularly when going against corporate giants with deep pockets.
