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.

If you have been the victim of emergency room malpractice or other form of medical malpractice, you may be feeling confused and angry, perhaps on top of continuing to suffer with your medical condition.
