DeKalb County Medical Malpractice Lawyers

DeKalb County, IL medical negligence lawyer

Attorneys for Doctor, ER, and Hospital Injuries in DeKalb County, Illinois

Everyone deserves to receive quality medical care whenever they need it. While most medical professionals do everything they can to make sure patients are provided with the correct treatment, there are some who act negligently or provide substandard care, which can result in serious injuries to patients. When a trusted medical professional acts in a way that causes harm to a patient, a person and their family can suffer serious harm, including ongoing health issues, permanent disabilities, or wrongful death. Victims of medical malpractice can pursue financial compensation for these damages by working with an experienced attorney.

We have an in-depth knowledge of the laws and procedures involved in medical malpractice cases, and we have a record of success obtaining multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients.

Common Types of Medical Negligence

There are many ways that patients can be injured because of the negligence of doctors or other medical personnel. We provide legal help with cases involving:

  • Doctor malpractice - A family doctor or primary care physician can build familiarity with a patient, allowing them to identify any health issues that may need to be addressed. Because these doctors often treat large numbers of patients, they may not identify serious health conditions, or they may fail to order the correct tests, provide the proper treatment, or refer a patient to a specialist when necessary.
  • ER mistakes - Emergency rooms can be very crowded, and doctors and nurses often work long hours while treating large numbers of patients in a short period of time. This can result in mistakes that cause a patient to not receive timely treatment for serious health conditions.
  • Hospital malpractice - Multiple issues can lead to problems for hospital patients, including poor communication between departments, understaffing, improper training of nurses or other personnel, infections due to poor sanitary practices, or clerical errors that result in treatment being provided to the wrong patient.
  • Misdiagnosis - If a doctor incorrectly diagnoses a person's condition, the patient may not receive the treatment they need, and they may also receive unnecessary treatment that has a negative effect on their health. A delayed diagnosis can also cause serious injuries, since a patient may not receive treatment in time to prevent a worsening of their condition or correct health issues before they become life-threatening.
  • Surgical errors - Patients may be injured during surgery due to mistakes by surgeons, such as accidentally severing nerves or puncturing the intestines. Injuries related to surgery may also be caused by anesthesia errors, infections, or a procedure being performed on the wrong side of the body or the wrong level of the spine.
  • Birth injuries - The process of labor and delivery can put a great deal of stress on both a mother and her child. If medical personnel do not monitor a patient during labor or respond correctly to any complications that arise during delivery, a child or mother may suffer serious injuries or wrongful death.
  • Medication errors - Prescriptions that are written or filled incorrectly may result in a patient receiving the wrong medicine or a dose that is dangerously high or too low to be effective. Patients may also be injured due to allergic reactions, harmful side effects, or dangerous interactions between medications.
