What is a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

Medical malpractice lawsuits are filed by people who are seriously injured because of the mistakes or negligent acts of a medical professional such as a doctor, nurse, hospital worker, dentist, nursing home staff member, or any other person in the medical profession. A lawsuit allows victims to recover damages to help with medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering resulting from the medical mistakes and negligence.

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

In Illinois, the time you have to file a medical malpractice claim is typically two years from when you realized the mistake was made, or from when you reasonably should have realized the injury. However, this may vary depending on your case, so it is very important to talk to an Illinois medical malpractice attorney immediately if you think that you have a potential case to make sure that you do not miss your chance to be compensated for your injury or loss.

What Will a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Cost Me?

Medical malpractice lawsuits can be lengthy and expensive to litigate, so our firm represents clients on a contingency basis. This means that we will not collect attorneys’ fees from you unless or until we successfully conclude your case, and then we will collect a percentage of the total recovered. If the case does not end in any recovery of money, you will not pay us anything.

The reason we handle cases in this way is to make sure that all victims are given equal opportunity to recover the compensation they deserve. This arrangement also allows you to take legal action with no financial risk.

How do I Pick the Best Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorney to Handle my Case?

When deciding what attorney is right for you, it is important to ask about what types of of medical malpractice cases the firm has handled in the past. You should choose a firm with experience handling cases like yours because medical malpractice cases usually involve complicated issues that require in-depth legal and medical knowledge.

Our Chicago medical malpractice lawyers have handled all different types of medical malpractice cases, including but not limited to those involving birth injuries, brain injuries, nursing home abuse and neglect, missed or improper diagnosis, surgical errors, and medication errors.

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.

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
