Personal Injury Attorney Edward “Ted” G. Proctor, Jr.
Ted has been a partner of Personal Injury Attorneys at Munday, Nathan & Schulkin since 1998. In his 18 years of practice he has tried numerous cases and obtained significant settlements and verdicts on behalf of his clients. Ted was raised on the south side of Chicago in the Beverly area. He went to Brother Rice High School and continued his education at the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana where he received a Bachelor of Science. He graduated from Loyola Chicago School of Law in 1989.
Ted’s creativity, work ethic and dedication to his clients have resulted in many successful results over the years for his clients. His area of practice is primarily personal injury matters such as complex medical negligence cases, products liability, construction accidents, automobile accidents and more. He also handles some commercial matters and police misconduct cases. In 1993, Ted as a young lawyer successfully argued a police misconduct matter in the United States Supreme Court. The municipality was claiming an immediate right to appeal a District Judge’s decision not to dismiss the case and to have the case tried before a jury. This practice had become common and the result was that the Appellate Courts became the judge and jury rather than have public officials tried by a jury of their peers.
The United States Supreme Court agreed with Ted that governmental officials should not be able to avoid a jury of their peers in deciding whether their conduct is wrongful. The Supreme Court’s decision in that case limited public officials ability to use the court system in a manner, which before this decision, allowed them to escape their wrongdoings.
He has handled other newsworthy matters such as a case he handled against a property owner who caused the death of two small children and their mother due to carbon monoxide poisoning. The landowner knowingly allowed the family to use a defective heater and when he discovered the tragedy, he placed carbon monoxide detectors in the apartment while the decedents were still in the apartment. The landowner was forced to sell all of his properties, most of which were uninhabitable, and a fund was created for the benefit of the surviving family members. The court also ordered that the landlord sign an order, which forbade him from ever owning rental properties in Chicago again. The headlines read “Landlord Gets Evicted.”
Ted is a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Chicago Bar Association, and the Illinois State Bar Association. He is currently the President of the Board of Governors for the Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
