Although hospitals, doctors, nurses, and other health care providers are usually skilled and dedicated, they sometimes make unreasonable mistakes. Unlike most other mistakes, however, the consequences of a medical error can be devastating to a patient and their family.
When a health care provider makes an avoidable mistake that causes a patient’s injury or death, the patient or their family has a right under Illinois law to file a medical malpractice claim and collect compensation.
Medical malpractice claims are usually complicated and require experienced lawyers. Our team of Chicago medical malpractice lawyers and paralegals at The Horwitz Law Group have successfully handled dozens of medical malpractice cases. If we agree to handle your case, we work on a contingency fee basis and only get paid if you are awarded money.
We represent clients in a wide range of medical malpractice claims, including those involving:
In Chicago’s hospitals and pharmacies, individuals trust doctors and pharmacists to both accurately prescribe medication and properly fill prescriptions. Do not hesitate to contact our firm if you were a victim of a medication error.
Potentially life-saving treatments rely on the accurate and timely diagnosis of disease. When this does not happen, an individual risks further health deterioration or death. Contact the Chicago office of The Horwitz Law Group to learn more about your options for monetary compensation.
Individuals being treated by emergency room personnel in Chicago rely on their expertise and confidence in stressful situations. Unfortunately, these professionals can make diagnostic and treatment errors that result in more harm than good.
A surgery can quickly become a life-threatening procedure due to defective equipment, inadequate preparation or poorly trained support staff. If you or a loved one was a victim of a surgical error, it might be possible to recover money through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
