What is a medical malpractice lawsuit?
Medical malpractice lawsuits are filed by victims who are seriously injured or killed because of a medical professional’s negligence or misconduct. This could be a missed or delayed diagnosis, a surgical error, a medication or prescription error, a fall in a hospital, or even abuse or neglect by a nursing home employee. In these types of situations, the victim may file a lawsuit against the responsible provider to seek justice and compensation. In wrongful death cases where the victim cannot file a suit themselves, the family of the victim may be able to file on their behalf.
What is the statute of limitations for an Illinois medical malpractice lawsuit?
Typically, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice complaint in Illinois is two years from when the injury is discovered, or reasonably should have been discovered. However, there are many exceptions to this time limit, so it is best to call a Chicago medical malpractice lawyer right away to see what time limitations apply to your case. Medical malpractice lawsuits take time to investigate, so it is important to take action early.
What will a medical malpractice lawsuit cost me?
We know that lawsuits can be expensive to pursue, and because of this, our firm represents clients on a contingency fee basis to make sure that potential costs do not keep victims from taking legal action against negligent doctors, hospitals, nursing and other healthcare providers. What this means is that you will not pay us until, or unless, we receive a favorable outcome in the form of a verdict or settlement for you. All victims should have equal access to the courts and this type of fee arrangement gives deserving victims this access.
