Medical Malpractice in Chicago, Illinois

Medical malpractice occurs as a result of a negligent act by a healthcare professional or healthcare facility that causes harm to a patient. Medical malpractice is the leading cause of wrongful deaths in many areas of the country.

A healthcare professional may be a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist, pharmacist, medical technician or other staff employed by a healthcare facility such as a hospital, nursing home, dialysis or same day surgery center. Medical malpractice can involve a misdiagnosis, surgical error, medication mistakes, the failure to diagnose a life-threatening illness and birth injuries.
