When Negligence Injures And Kills Patients
We all have certain expectations for our medical care. We trust that our doctors, nurses and others involved in our treatment have our best interest in mind when we go to a hospital, clinic or other medical provider and would not do anything to compromise our health and well-being. Unfortunately, medical malpractice causes thousands of deaths and catastrophic injuries every year for victims across the state.

Common Forms Of Medical Negligence
Patients can be injured by health care professionals in a variety of ways. Common medical malpractice cases arise from:
- Misdiagnosis of cancer and other conditions
- Failure to diagnose or late diagnoses
- Medication errors
- Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy
- Surgical errors
- Preventable infections
- Death of a loved one due to negligent care
Each medical negligence case is different, and our personal injury lawyers will analyze your case to see what sort of compensation will be available to you under Illinois law. Injuries can range from serious side effects of medication to wrongful death.
Insurance companies frequently fight these claims, making it difficult for you to recover compensation. You may have huge medical expenses and a complicated legal battle ahead when you suffer injuries because of medical malpractice. Our injury attorneys can help you fight back.
