Kevin C. Rasp is an associate at O’Hagan’s Chicago office. He began his career at a medical malpractice defense firm in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he defended healthcare providers in Indiana’s unique Medical Review Panel system. He worked closely with client physicians, nursing homes, and hospitals to learn the applicable medicine and prepare submissions to the Medical Review Panel. These submissions discussed the relevant treatment, demonstrated his client’s adherence to the standard of care, and contested the medical causation of the patient’s injuries. When cases were not resolved at the Medical Review Panel stage, Kevin defended his healthcare clients as their medical malpractice cases continued in state court.
While in Indiana, Kevin also litigated products liability and personal injury cases from the initial stage of investigation through discovery, mediation, trial and the appeal process. He second chaired several medical malpractice trials and represented clients in courtrooms across the state. He maintains his Indiana license.
When Kevin returned to Chicago, his practice focused on the defense of products liability, wrongful death, and mass tort cases in Illinois, Indiana and around the country. He managed a varied and challenging caseload where he had the opportunity to depose expert witnesses, lead trial teams, and brief a successful appeal.
At O’Hagan LLC, Kevin defends clients in cases involving medical malpractice, the Nursing Home Care Act, products liability, and professional liability. He is one of the firm’s appellate advocates and briefs appeals.
