Do doctors and hospitals make mistakes?

Yes, absolutely they do. 

Doctors and hospitals commit errors all the time. But when does bad service or a bad outcome cross over into negligence giving rise to a potential medical malpractice lawsuit? Medical malpractice isn’t as cut and dry as many other personal injury lawsuits. For example, when you’re in a car accident, it is plainly obvious that someone has injured you, which is probably the driver that hit you with their car.

But in a hospital or other medical setting, how do you know that you have been injured due to medical error? If you answer “yes” to this question, you should contact us immediately:

“Did I (or a relative) experience an unexpected or unexplained outcome that led to serious injury or death in the case of a relative?”

While medical malpractice lawsuits are some of the most difficult to win, compensation can go a long way to ease financial burdens that you or your family may have to endure.

If you survive your injury, you may require specialized medical care or daily caregiving. If you are unable to work, you will need funds for food and shelter. If you are in pain, you deserve compensation for your suffering.

If a loved one passes away as a result of medical error, compensation can help the fill the void of financial support left behind as a result of their death.

Has something like this happened to you? In the state of Illinois, you have up to 2 years from injury or discovery of medical error to file your malpractice lawsuit.

As we mentioned, these are some of the toughest cases to win, so don’t go it alone. The sooner you contact us, the better off you will be.
