Chicago Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Medical malpractice happens when a medical professional owes a duty of care to a patient and fails to provide the proper level of care that any reasonable person would expect to receive in a modern medical center. This doesn’t mean that all negative outcomes are malpractice, but a negative event may indicate malpractice when it was the result of a mistake or other negligent behavior on the part of a physician or medical professional.

At Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, we understand how complex these cases can become, and we are here to help. We opened our doors in 1994 and have more than three decades of experience to rely on. We can help you consider both economic and noneconomic damages.

Every case is unique, but our dedicated Illinois team can help you explore your legal options.

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:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Medication errors
  • Postoperative care errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to diagnose or late diagnoses
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed cancer diagnosis
  • Surgical errors causing paralysis
  • Misdiagnosis of cancer and other conditions
  • Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy
  • Preventable infections
  • Death of a loved one due to negligent care

There is a statute of limitations in Illinois, and you need to work with a medical malpractice attorney to explore your options within two years of the injury or whenever you discover that injury. This is not something you want to put off, as even a valid case may be impossible if you’ve missed the statute of limitations, meaning you would miss out on the compensation that you deserve.

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.
