Living in the wake of a medical malpractice injury that was caused by something completely out of your control can make you feel powerless, helpless, and hopeless. Fighting to regain your health, or coping with the loss of a loved one is a daily challenge.
When we visit a medical professional we expect that our health and safety is their first priority. Carelessness, negligence, defective equipment or other factors can result in a medical malpractice injury or death. Medical practices and hospitals in Illinois are subject to strict regulations and laws that protect the rights of a patient in the event of an injury. Allowing victims to seek compensation for injury, loss of life, disability, lost wages, pain, suffering and other damages.
Unfortunately, medical malpractice cases are uniquely difficult to prove. More experienced attorneys who have advocated for the rights of victims are familiar with the investigation needed to properly document a case.
An attorney will assess your situation, and begin to collect important pieces of information that will determine if you are able to seek damages in the form of a medical malpractice lawsuit. Once that is determined you will have a choice to move forward, and any costs involved will be explained to you. We pride ourselves in advocating for our clients, and their loved ones.
If you are drowning in medical bills, suffer from a disability, have been injured as a result of any medical treatment or have lost a loved one, you should consult with an attorney as soon after the incident as possible. Not to immediately file a lawsuit, but to alert them of the situation so that they can begin to track and document your case so that your legal options can be determined.
