When Medical Errors Result In Injuries And Death
Doctors, nurses and other individuals who work in the health care industry are responsible for making decisions and taking action to help patients and improve their overall health. Unfortunately, there are times when medical professionals fail to act or act in ways that ultimately lead to patients
suffering harm, injury and even death.

- Misdiagnosis – Cancer, heart attacks and strokes
- Medication errors – Wrong medication or the wrong dose
If you or a loved one has suffered due to the negligence of a medical professional, it is important to find out if legal action may be appropriate.
Experienced Medical Malpractice Representation
The process of filing a medical malpractice claim is more complex than other types of personal injury matters. First, an injured party must be able to establish that a doctor or nurse failed to provide a certain standard of care that a reasonable individual would provide in the same situation. Additionally, Illinois imposes a two-year statute of limitations for filing medical malpractice claims. This means that a claim must be filed within two years of an injury or death or within two years of discovering that negligence contributed to an injury or death.
Due to the complex nature of medical malpractice cases, it is important to rely on a personal injury attorney who knows how to appropriately and successfully pursue these matters to achieve a positive outcome. For more than 40 years, we have represented individuals throughout the Aurora area and fought to recover the compensation they need to heal and move forward in their lives.
