Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice is one of the most common types of personal injury claims.  Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other health care provider fails to adhere to the standard of care and a patient is injured or dies as a result of that failure.

Some of the most common types of medical malpractice claims include:

  • Emergency Room Malpractice

  • Sub-Standard Care

  • Hospital Malpractice

  • Surgical Errors

  • Diagnostic Errors

  • Anesthesia Errors

  • Medication Errors

  • Drug Interactions

  • Adverse Reactions

  • Unnecessary Medical Treatment or Procedures

If you or someone you love have been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages: medical expenses, lost wages, household services, pain and suffering, permanent disability, and disfigurement. Illinois currently does not have damage caps on medical malpractice or personal injury verdicts.

The statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Illinois is generally two years from the incident.  The legal issues involved with a medical malpractice lawsuit are complex.  It is important to contact an attorney and schedule a consultation so that the attorney can help you understand your options.
