Medical Malpractice Lawyer: Chicago & DuPage County
Professionally, doctors and other heal care providers are held to the highest standards of care in our society. Medical Malpractice is defined as mistakes made by doctors, nurses, hospital staff, pharmacists and other health care professionals which cause death or injury. When a health care provider has breached the duty of care he or she is supposed to give the patient, medical malpractice occurs.
It’s widely known that Medical Malpractice cases are the most challenging of all areas of personal injury litigation. Hospitals, nurses, doctors and their insurers are incredibly aggressive, in terms of defense, when claims of medical negligence arise.
The plaintiff has to prove
1) that the health care provider made a mistake
2) the mistake is the direct and proximate cause of the victim’s injury
As a result, many personal injury lawyers will not handle medical malpractice lawsuits. Additionally, the complexity of issues combined with cost of medical malpractice litigation are well out of range, resources & expertise of most law groups.
