Why Does Medical Malpractice Happen?

Many acts of medical malpractice are the result of understaffing or careless mistakes by medical staff members. We expect the best care for ourselves and our loved ones. There is no room in our healthcare system for inattention, or worse yet, prioritizing profits over patients.

Our medical malpractice law firm has represented clients in a variety of cases. Typically, we find medical malpractice to be the result of:

  • Improper or inadequate staffing
  • Poor hiring and training protocols
  • Failure to abide by Illinois or federal laws
  • Unethical or neglectful behaviors
  • Intentional acts

It doesn’t matter what the cause might be – we will investigate your case and hold the responsible parties accountable. Our top priority is always protecting victims and their loved ones.

How Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Work in Illinois

When a medical malpractice case is filed in the state of Illinois, the plaintiff must be able to prove that there was:

  • A real doctor-patient relationship
  • A duty of care that was expected/promised
  • A breach or failure in that duty of care
  • That the failure caused the patient’s injury or illness
  • Physical, emotional, or financial damage

A trained Chicago medical malpractice attorney will help you demonstrate all of these points and seek the appropriate compensation. Keep in mind that all medical malpractice lawsuits in Illinois must be filed within two years of the date of injury or the date on which the injured learned of the malpractice.

Hiring a team of medical malpractice lawyers in Illinois is the best way to protect your rights and meet all of the legal requirements and timelines. Our attorneys work diligently on your behalf to establish the strongest case possible.
