Attorney Profile

The founder of Susan E. Loggans & Associates, Susan E. Loggans has received well-deserved recognition as a leading personal injury and wrongful death litigation attorney. Based in Chicago, Illinois, she furnishes representation to people who have been harmed by the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities. Admitted to practice before all Illinois, Florida and Wisconsin state courts, Ms. Loggans has been able to obtain millions of dollars in jury awards and negotiated settlements, and her colleagues have taken note of her successful track record by awarding her an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

Ms. Loggans devotes a significant portion of her practice to medical malpractice, particularly birth injuries. She has represented many children who have been born with cerebral palsy due to doctor’s error or hospital negligence, and she has, as a result, been an active participant in nonprofit organizations that deal with this condition, including her prior service as a member of the board of directors of the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Chicago. Ms. Loggans has also handled cases arising out of defective products, motor vehicle crashes and aviation accidents. Some of her representative results include a $16 million settlement with a health maintenance organization and an $8 million settlement for birth injuries caused by both hospital negligence and a doctor's mistake.

Ms. Loggans has served in leadership positions with several professional organizations, including the American Bar Association, the American Association for Justice and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association. She has had several articles published on topics related to her practice area, and she has appeared on local and national television broadcasts. In addition to her Juris Doctor from DePaul University College of Law, Ms. Loggans holds both a master's degree and a doctorate in psychology.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™ fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
