When you hire Ken Hoffman, he makes sure you know one very important thing: he works for you.

Ken represents people in personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from car and truck accidents, medical malpractice, slip and falls, worksite injuries and nursing home neglect. The singular focus of his personal injury practice is on protecting his clients’ interests: getting them the resources they need to find their way through tragedy.

Over 30 years, he has secured numerous multi-million-dollar settlements and jury verdicts for clients:

  • $9.95 million jury verdict for the surviving family members who lost their mother as a result of medical malpractice

  • $8.1 million settlement for a 51-year-old woman who suffered significant neck and back injuries requiring fusion of her cervical spine.

  • $6.5 million settlement for a 61 year old man who suffered injuries when he fell on ice in parking lot

  • $6.25 million for the family of a construction worker fatally struck by a trucker in a work zone

  • $6.25 million settlement on behalf of a child who suffered permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy as a result of the negligence of the delivering physician

  • $5.4 million for the sole survivor of a Lake Michigan boating accident

  • $3.25 million on behalf of the family of a driver hit by a semi-tractor trailer while stopped in traffic on the highway

  • $3 million jury verdict for a motorcycle rider struck by a Chicago Police Department squad car on Lake Shore Drive

“I tell every client the same thing at the end of our first meeting, ‘I work for you,’” he says. “I want them to know that if they need something, I’m here. This might be the first time they’ve ever had a lawyer on their side, and I want to make sure they understand that I am truly dedicated to their interests.”
