As Chicago Medical Malpractice Lawyers, we have successfully handled many medical malpractice cases including cases arising out of obstetric, surgical, anesthesia, infectious disease, pediatrics, as well as many other specialties of medicine.
Under Illinois law, before a lawsuit against a physician or hospital can be filed the lawyer must obtain a Certificate of Merit from a qualified physician, verifying after a review of the records that a “reasonable and meritorious cause” exists for the filing of the lawsuit.
Catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases arising out of a failure to diagnose, failure to treat, failure to refer to a specialist, or otherwise providing medical care that falls below the standard of care required of a physician or hospital practicing under the same or similar circumstances are all actionable under Illinois law.
We have obtained for our clients a $1.5 million dollar settlement in a medical malpractice case for the wrongful death of a patient following a kidney biopsy as well as a $900,000.00 settlement for the wrongful death of an unborn child.
In 2015, we obtained a $1.0 million dollar settlement in an obstetrical malpractice case.
