Following is a list of Chicago medical malpractice frequently asked questions. For more information about specific medical malpractice facts and your case, please contact me directly.

Did My Doctor Commit Medical Negligence?

Not every instance of injury or wrongful death constitutes malpractice. A prior injury or other complication could also result in injury or accidental death during the treatment process. As your attorney, I will review your case, consult with experts, assess testimony and fully evaluate the facts to determine if medical malpractice was involved.

Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

A medical malpractice claim is viable if your doctor or other medical professional deviated from normal standards of care. An experienced attorney can assess the facts of your case, consult with experts and determine whether malpractice was possible or probable in your situation.

Do I Need an Attorney?

Medical malpractice claims are some of the most complicated cases in personal injury. Without experienced support, you could risk waiving claims or settling for far less than your claim is worth. I am highly experienced in the investigation of claims and all aspects of litigation and am prepared to take your case to trial if necessary.

Is Filing a Malpractice Claim Immoral?

Many people have moral reservations about pursuing legal claims; partly because they want to trust the medical professionals who treat them and also because of stigmas associated with litigation. Filing a claim for an injury you have sustained or for the loss of a loved one is your legal right. It can also hold responsible parties accountable and prevent future injury to others or wrongful death.

Who Will Pay for Injuries and Medical Expenses?

Immediately after an injury, you may need financial assistance with medical expenses, treatments and other medical resources. Insurance carriers may or may not cover up-front costs, but pursuing legal remedies may offer you the additional coverage as well as provide you with necessary support into the future. As your lawyer, I will seek to recover compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, long-term care needs, lost wages and any other financial losses you have endured.
