Cicero, Illinois

Have You Been Harmed by a Doctor, Nurse, or Other Medical Professional in Cicero, Illinois?

If the answer is yes, you may have a medical malpractice case.

Our Chicago medical malpractice attorneys help badly injured victims file legal claims against negligent medical professionals, hospitals, and clinics. We also represent the families of patients wrongfully killed in medical settings.

Most people do not understand if/when they have a case and if they should file a medical malpractice lawsuit. The first step is to contact a legal professional to help answer your questions. To start, we've provided some answers to some general questions that many victims first ask.

What is a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

When doctors, nurses, dentists, nurse's assistants, and other medical employees fail to treat a patient according to reasonable standards of care, and the patient is badly injured, they may be entitled to file suit. A medical malpractice lawsuit seeks to return fair compensation to the victim for their losses. Those losses may include a variety of things including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and similar items.

When Can a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit be Filed?

A potential victim should contact a Chicagoland personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

The law in our state specifically includes a provision known as a "statute of limitations" which places a time limit on when an individual may file this type of lawsuit. Usually that time limit is two years after the person learns that they have been injured by their doctor's negligence. However, there are many exceptions and unique legal factors that go into the calculation, so it is vital to ask a lawyer to learn exactly where you stand.

Who Can File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

A lawsuit can be filed by a patient who has been severely injured because of negligent care by a medical professional. When mistakes cause the death of the patient, the victim's family can seek legal counsel and file a lawsuit on their loved one's behalf. Similarly, parents can file suit on behalf of their children if the child is injured by a preventable medical error.

How Much Does Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim Cost?

We work on a contingent fee basis, which means that our firm covers the cost of filing the suit, investigation, and similar expenses. We only collect fees for our work if your claim is successfully resolved.

Some victims are reluctant to file a lawsuit because they do not have the money to pay for legal fees. Our Chicago medical malpractice attorneys do not believe that any rightful victim should be denied legal services because of their inability to pay. A contingency fee set-up gives everyone access to the courts.

About Cicero

Cicero is one of the oldest cities in Cook County, nestled just west of Chicago. The city used to be four times larger than its current size, but was broken up over the years into other municipalities including Berwyn and Oak Park. In addition, the Austin neighborhood was part of Cicero before being annexed by Chicago. Residents in the area receive treatment at a variety of local medical facilities, including Loretto Hospital, St. Anthony Hospital, Hartgrove Hospital, and others. Many residents also seek care at a number of Chicago facilities due to Cicero's proximity to these medical centers.
