Illinois Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Attorneys
Medical malpractice is when a doctor or other medical professional injures a patient due to negligence. When you seek medical care, there is an expectation that you will be treated according to established standards of practice. When your care deviates from these standards and results in injury, you can sue for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can be either a personal injury or wrongful death case. These cases can be both challenging and costly to prove. It’s important to choose a law firm with knowledge, experience and resources to advocate on your behalf.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

An unexpected result alone is not grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. For a malpractice suit to be successful, plaintiffs must prove the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of a medical professional or hospital.
