Carl M. Schultz focuses on civil litigation and trial work, particularly in the areas of medical malpractice, healthcare, and general negligence. He has extensive experience defending hospitals, nursing homes, and individual healthcare professionals in professional malpractice matters. He has also represented clients before the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, and in various Federal and State healthcare fraud investigations.
Mr. Schultz has successfully represented healthcare clients in obtaining favorable results at mediation, pre-trial settlement conference and trial. Recently, Mr. Schultz obtained a defense verdict in favor of a nursing home in McHenry County Illinois. Plaintiff alleged violations of the Illinois Nursing Home Act arising from a resident who fell and fractured his hip. The winning defense was that the nursing home staff properly followed policy and regulations requiring the least restrictive environment. The jury agreed with the defense and found in favor of the nursing home that there were no violations of the Act. Plaintiff’s post-trial appeal was denied and the defense verdict affirmed.
Mr. Schultz is a regular speaker on topics in healthcare law including presentations at the Chicago Risk Management Society, Illinois Defense Counsel, Chicago Bar Association, and presentations to the staff of various clients.
