Medical Malpractice Attorney in Chicago

Have You been Injured by Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice involves the negligent delivery of medical services.  It comes in many forms and can have catastrophic consequences for patients.  These cases require experienced and tenacious legal professionals to understand medical jargon and penetrate cover-ups to reveal the truth. You are urged to contact a Chicago personal injury attorney to help you.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can involve ignoring allergic reactions to antibiotics and performing surgery anyway, circumstances that caused the death of a 12 year-old boy in Libertyville.  It can be from using medical equipment contaminated by hepatitis and HIV viruses. It can be from prescribing to a pregnant mother a drug that causes birth defects.  It can be from a pharmacist misreading a prescription and giving the wrong medicine.  It can be from a nursing home neglecting to inspect for bedsores. It can occur from an obstetrician failing to perform an indicated Caesarean section resulting in brain damage to a baby or other birth injury.

When these injuries occur, severe damages can result.  The medical personnel and institutions are fast to erect walls of misdirection and untruth to defend their actions.  Nevertheless an experienced medical malpractice lawyer is wise to such tactics and uses legal discovery procedures to obtain records and other evidence of wrongdoing.  The attorney also contacts medical experts to examine the evidence and testify to departures from accepted medical practice.  The attorney also has independent medical experts examine the client to establish the injuries sustained and testify as to damages and care required for recovery.
