Our attorneys have had considerable success representing seriously injured clients in all types of medical malpractice lawsuits .
Our firm represents clients in claims and lawsuits that arise when people are injured by careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, dentist, chiropractor, podiatrist, hospital, or other healthcare provider. When these actions cause an injury to another person (but the actions do not rise to the level of a crime), they are said to be a "tort," or civil wrong, which can provide the basis for a lawsuit. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they may be made to pay the injured person compensatory damages. Compensatory damages attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded in these lawsuits. Punitive damages are intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others. Our firm handles a variety of medical malpractice claims for clients in Chicago and throughout the State of Illinois, including those arising out of: Missed Diagnosis Delayed Diagnosis Lack of Informed Consent Birth Injuries Healthcare Provider Errors Misread Xray, Slides, and Ultrasounds Medical Device Errors Medication Errors/ Pharmaceutical Errors Spinal Cord Injuries Dental Malpractice Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Injuries suffered as a result of medical malpractice can be severe and life altering.
