Chicago Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys
Illinois Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Emergency room malpractice can occur for a number of reasons, but it frequently occurs when the treating doctor or other medical staff fails to properly diagnose the medical problem or fails to treat the medical problem in a timely manner. Although emergency rooms are hectic, often chaotic places, where doctors need to make quick decisions, one should still expect to receive adequate medical care. If the ER medical staff is negligent in providing medical treatment and proper medical care is sacrificed as a result, you may be entitled to financial compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse or other health care provider is negligent in providing the appropriate and necessary medical treatment to a patient. If a healthcare provider has committed medical malpractice, the victim may be entitled to recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, life care expenses, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

A medical malpractice lawsuit holds the negligent doctor, nurse or other medical professional liable for the medical errors that were made so that you can get the medical care and compensation that you need.
