Ted Jennings has nearly 30 years of experience litigating complex cases. He knows how to address the unique challenges facing clients whose lives have been permanently changed by medical mistakes.

The medical industry is trusted and powerful. When someone is injured by medical care that is supposed to help them, they need an advocate to answer their questions. Ted understands the challenging medical and legal issues that arise when medical care results in harm, and he has spent years honing his ability to explain these complicated concepts to his clients, to judges, and to juries.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by medical care, you may find that you need answers and an advocate just as much as you need compensation for your injuries. Ted’s legal practice, supported by the team at Coplan + Crane, focuses on seeking those answers and making sure our clients know they will not face the powerful medical industry alone.

Ted is a designated “Super Lawyer” in Illinois and has been elected by his peers as a “Leading Lawyer” in personal injury and medical malpractice. He is a member of the Society of Trial Lawyers and American Board of Trial Advocates— elite, invitation-only organizations of top trial lawyers in the Chicago area and throughout the nation.

Among his professional activities, Ted is a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice.
