How Do I Know If I Should Contact a Medical Malpractice Attorney?

Many patients receive care from a medical professional that falls short of the reasonable standard of care that all patients expect. This can be from a doctor, nurse, nursing assistant, or any other type of health care provider. Sometimes those mistakes are obvious (like operating on the wrong part of the body in surgery) but, more often than not, the errors are more subtle. It is difficult for a patient to determine if their serious injuries were caused by negligence. Things only become clearer when an investigation is conducted that sheds light on exactly what the medical care worker did, or failed to do.

If you think you have suffered a life-altering injury or the loss of a loved one due to the mistakes or carelessness of a medical professional, then you should contact a medical malpractice attorney. Most people do not realize that there are time limitations for filing medical malpractice lawsuits in Illinois. In Illinois, in most situations you only have two years to file a lawsuit from the date you received your injury, or the day you should have become aware of your injury for medical malpractice claims. The clock runs quicker than many people realize, so it is important to get experienced legal help quickly. In order to protect your rights, you should seek legal help if you suspect negligence has played a role in your injury or loss of a loved one.
