Lawyers for Injuries Caused by Medical Negligence in Lee County, IL

Patients put a great deal of faith in medical professionals. Most of the time, this faith is well-earned, since doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other professionals must obtain extensive education and training, and they usually focus on providing for their patients' best interests. However, this is not always true, and patients can suffer serious injuries when medical professionals act negligently or make mistakes. In these cases, victims may be able to pursue compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Cases involving medical negligence can be complicated. To ensure that they will be able to successfully recover compensation, injured patients will need to work with an attorney who is experienced and has a track record of success in medical malpractice cases. The lawyers of Mannarino & Brasfield, A Division of Schwartz Injury Law have more than 20 years of legal experience representing injury victims. We take the time to thoroughly investigate a case, gather evidence of medical negligence, and identify all parties that were responsible for a person's injuries. We work tirelessly to ensure that our clients are fully compensated for all of the damages they have suffered due to the negligence of medical personnel.

Legal Help With Medical Malpractice Injuries in Lee County

Typically, to successfully recover compensation for a medical malpractice injury, a victim will need to show that they had a provider-patient relationship with a medical professional, the professional acted in a way that deviated from the accepted standards of care, and the patient suffered injuries as a result. We provide representation in multiple types of medical malpractice cases, including those involving:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis - A proper diagnosis of a patient's condition is crucial for ensuring that they receive effective and timely treatment. A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can occur if a doctor failed to review a patient's medical history, failed to properly consider a patient's reported symptoms, failed to order the proper diagnostic tests, or misinterpreted test results.
  • Surgical errors - Surgery can be invasive, and if the correct procedures are not followed, a patient may suffer multiple types of injuries or complications. These injuries may occur because of mistakes made during a procedure, problems with anesthesia during surgery, infections due to improper sterilization procedures, or foreign objects being left behind inside a patient's body. In some cases, a patient may suffer harm because a procedure was performed on the wrong part of the body.
  • Medication errors - Patients may be harmed because the wrong medication was administered or because they were given an incorrect dose. Medication-related injuries can also occur if a doctor failed to consider the potential side effects of a drug or if a medication caused an allergic reaction or a harmful interaction with another drug.
  • Birth injuries - Both mothers and children can suffer harm if the correct procedures are not followed during labor and delivery. If a mother and child are not properly monitored, or if medical personnel do not respond correctly to signs of fetal distress, a child may suffer brain damage due to a lack of oxygen, which can lead to developmental disorders such as cerebral palsy. Mothers can also suffer serious or fatal injuries if doctors or nurses do not correctly address issues such as hemorrhaging, vaginal lacerations, or preeclampsia.
