Medical Malpractice & Wrongful Death Attorney serving Downer's Grove, IL
Are You One of the Thousands of Americans Who Has Been Injured or Harmed Due to a Medical Mistake?
Did you know that according to a Harvard study, nearly 80,000 people in the United States alone die due to medical malpractice? If you include victims whose injuries have been worsened or exacerbated by medical mistakes, that number jumps into the hundreds of thousands.
This astonishing number of patients who fall victim to doctors’ mistakes only takes into account patients treated in hospitals, while the actual number of people harmed, misdiagnosed, or mistreated by doctors may be significantly higher.
According to another Harvard study, it’s estimated that only 1 in 8 victims of medical malpractice ever file a claim, and only 1 in 16 received compensation for injuries caused by a doctor’s negligence. Insurance companies and other organizations frequently blame the rising costs of health and medical malpractice insurance on frivolous lawsuits, but the problem seems to be that there are too few victims with proper representation.

Has Your Loved One Suffered an Unexpected and Wrongful Death Due to Someone Else’s Negligence?
Wrongful death refers to a civil claim to hold a negligent party responsible for actions that resulted in the unfortunate and untimely death of a loved one, usually a family member. One of the most emotional and painful experiences someone is ever forced to endure is the death of a loved one. The suffering is only worsened when they are then deprived of wages and other sources of income that were previously provided by the victim. Whether it was the cause of a defective product, medical malpractice, workplace or auto accident, or otherwise, children and spouses of the victim have the right to pursue compensation for damages in the case of any wrongful death. Compensation owed can include anything from lost wages, emotional distress, medical expenses, loss of the relationship, and other expenses.
