What is a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

A medical malpractice lawsuit is a way for people who have been catastrophically injured during a medical procedure or treatment to seek justice and compensation. When someone is killed by a medical error, their family members can file a lawsuit. Often these cases involve a delayed or misdiagnosis, a misread x-ray, a surgical error, an inappropriately prescribed or administered medication, a birth injury, a nursing home injury or a variety of other types of medical mistakes. Medical malpractice lawsuits allow victims to recover economic and non-economic damages for their injury or loss such as compensation for medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering.

Who Can File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

You can file a medical malpractice lawsuit if you were the one injured by a medical mistake, or if you are a family member of someone who was killed by a medical mistake. If your child was seriously injured by a medical mistake, you can file a lawsuit on their behalf.

What is the Statute of Limitations for an Illinois Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

Generally, a medical malpractice case must be filed within two years of the injury being discovered or within two years of when the injury would have reasonably been discovered. The time limit is usually similar when filing an Illinois wrongful death lawsuit. One of the major exceptions occurs when the injury was to a child; the time limit is then increased to eight years from the date of the medical mistake. There are many exceptions, so it is best to contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible if you are unsure of the statute for your case. This will ensure you do not miss your chance to get the justice you deserve.

How Much Will a Medical Malpractice Suit Cost?

Our firm works on a contingency basis, meaning that clients will only pay us if their case is successful and they receive money damages for their injury or loss. No money is required upfront or out of pocket. You will only pay us a percentage of the money recovered if the case is won.

Medical malpractice lawsuits can be expensive after all the court costs, expert fees, and other expenses that can come up through the process. We understand that most clients cannot cover the many costs associated with medical malpractice lawsuits, so our Chicago medical malpractice attorneys are here to make the process easier for injured victims and families that have lost a loved one.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful.
