Medical Malpractice
Compassionate Counsel in Chicago Helps with All of Your Medical Malpractice Needs
Effective representation for the injured of Chicago

We trust our doctors and nurses with our lives literally. We expect that they know what medications we should take and what services we need. And on some level, we all understand that medical professionals are human, and humans make mistakes.

But when a doctor, nurse, surgeon or administrator makes a mistake so egregious that it costs your health, your livelihood or even the life of your loved one, it's time to take a stand. At the Karamanis Law Group, LLC, we help the victims of medical malpractice obtain the care and compensation they need and deserve. We take care of the details so you can focus on getting well as quickly as possible.

Learn what medical malpractice really means

The goal of a medical malpractice suit is to prove that your doctors or nurses, or surgeons did not maintain the proper standard of care when you were their patient. Medical professionals must maintain a certain level of competence. When the doctors fail to do that, you may have a medical malpractice case. Some of the more common medical malpractice suits involve:

Birth injuries
Traumatic brain injuries as a result of negligence
Wrongful death
Wrongful birth
Emergency room negligence
Prescribing the wrong medication
Surgical errors
Misdiagnoses
Problems when administering anesthesia
Cerebral palsy
Brachial plus injury/Erbs palsy/Klumpke's palsy
C-Section errors
Errors in inducing labor
Uterine ruptures
Pre-Eclampsia and HELLP Syndrome
Laparoscopic/Laparotomy injuries
The medical malpractice attorneys at the Karamanis Law Group, LLC have more than 100 years of combined experience fighting for patients who have been injured in some way due to the negligence of a medical professional. We guide you through every step of the process so that you always know what to expect during your case.

How we can help you with your case

When you're injured because of the negligence of a doctor, nurse or surgeon, we believe that you're entitled to compensation. We also believe that the institution should be held responsible for the damages it caused. Services we provide may include:

Reviewing medical records. Your medical records may tell us more about why you were injured. We review your charts, your trips to the doctor, your prescriptions any documentation available that can tell us more about your illness or injury.
Consulting experts. In a medical malpractice case it's your word against the word of the negligent medical professional. We consult with medical experts to establish the understood standard of care. We may also use their testimony in court to present your case.
Researching your doctor. It's important to prove that the doctor, nurse or surgeon was negligent in his or her behavior. We conduct research to determine the level of competence of the medical care you received.

Speak with an attorney who doesn't get paid unless you do

The most important part of your case is you. At Karamanis Law Group, LLC, we want you to be able to focus on getting the help you need, so that you can recover quickly and safely.
