Illinois Medical Malpractice Attorney Information Center

Dedicated Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving Chicago and Surrounding Areas

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional deviates from the accepted norms of practice, resulting in either an affirmative act or omission which results in injury to a patient. As a result, the injured patient—and sometimes their family—can bring a claim against the medical professional—and sometimes the facility or hospital that they work at—for damages, including medical costs, any lost wages, pain and suffering, and related damages.

Were you injured as a result of a medical professional's mistakes? Do you believe that your doctor, nurse, nurse's assistance, dentist, or other health care worker caused you harm? If so, you likely have questions about your potential legal rights.

We created the Illinois Medical Malpractice Attorney Information Center to help answer some of your initial questions and concerns about the legal process.

Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team. Kathy and Ron

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. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
