Meyers & Flowers, LLC
Peter J. Flowers believes a hands-on approach is the only way to handle delicate cases involving serious injury and death.
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.
He has also represented the victims and families of victims of nursing home abuse and of sexual abuse. 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.
This approach has earned Pete tremendous results and numerous honors over the years. He’s been named a Top 10 Illinois Super Lawyer in the area of medical malpractice and recognized as a Leading Lawyer in Illinois by his peers, a distinction earned by only 5% of the state’s lawyers. He is a member of both the Million Dollar Advocate Forum, for resolving numerous cases in excess of $1 million, and the elite Verdict Club Society, which includes top attorneys from around the United States.
Representing clients who have been injured by neglectful physicians, drug companies, medical device manufacturers and others requires a special mixture of compassion and unshakeable determination. As a respected Chicago attorney, Pete has earned his place among the city’s elite attorneys specializing in personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice. His many wins against multinational drug companies, insurance company mitigation legal teams and other formidable opponents have resulted in multiple awards by his peers.
Pete Flowers leaves nothing to chance during trial preparations, pretrial depositions, and interviews. His trial prep team is meticulous in assembling documentary evidence, respected medical expert testimony and witnesses which all culminate in irrefutable proof that his clients deserve significant compensation for their injuries and losses.
"As a lawyer, I live and breathe my client’s cases. Some of my best friends are my clients; people I still talk to, kids I still take care of on many different levels. This is different from a one-time injury that gets fixed and goes away; these are catastrophic events that forever tie you to your client. If you don’t get emotionally involved, you’re not properly representing them."
Taking on difficult and complex cases is a challenge that many Chicago attorneys avoid due to the commitment of time and resources that these cases require. As a partner in one of the city’s top law firms, Pete Flowers has confronted many of the world’s largest medical device manufacturers, winning his clients meaningful settlements and awards. Cases involving medical issues must meet a high level of proof to overcome the generally held idea that medical doctors are trying to help their patients and that injuries and death are part of the process.
Knowing this, Pete has assembled a team of professionals fully capable of communicating complex medical issues to judges and jury members who are not medically trained. This clear, focused approach to presenting his case is one of the many stellar traits that set him apart as a leading attorney among Chicago’s best medical malpractice advocates.
Wrongful death lawsuits are among the most emotional and sensitive legal actions conducted by an attorney. Surviving family members are distraught and must be treated with an understanding while obtaining the facts of the case. In Chicago, Meyers & Flowers has a formidable team of trial preparation professionals who can shield bereaved clients from having to directly confront doctors, hospital staff and insurance attorneys while the case progresses through the system.
Chicago Attorney Pete Flowers understand the anguish his clients are experiencing and vigorously prosecutes his client’s case so that the surviving members can move forward with their lives as soon as possible. Although a monetary award cannot bring back a loved one, Pete believes that by obtaining a meaningful financial settlement his clients will at least be relieved of financial stress.
