Medical Malpractice

When a doctor fails to diagnose cancer or a hospital does not adequately monitor a patient, the outcome can be devastating.  The legal term used to describe these types of situations is medical malpractice.  Medical malpractice is the result of a medical professional failing to provide the accepted standard of care, which ultimately causes injury or death to the patient.  However, for patients and their families, medical malpractice means pain, loss and emotional distress.  If you or a loved one has been injured by a medical error that could have been prevented, you may be entitled to compensation.

The Illinois medical malpractice attorneys at Richard F. Mallen & Associates have extensive experience in representing injured patients and their families.  Medical malpractice comes in many different forms.  We regularly handle cases involving the following: 
  • Failure to monitor a patient
  • Birth injuries, including cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia
  • Brain injuries
  • Loss of oxygen
  • Retained objects following surgery
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other serious condition
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Misdiagnosed heart attack
  • Surgery on the wrong limb
  • Nursing Home Injuries

If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be facing additional medical care and surgeries to correct the problem.  During your recovery, you may incur additional medical expenses and be forced to take time off of work.  Many injuries even require extensive future medical care.  When the hospital or doctor is negligent, you can pursue compensation, which may include pain and suffering, lost income, past and future medical expenses and other costs associated with your injury.  Illinois does have a statute of limitations as to when you must file a medical malpractice claim, so it is imperative that you seek legal advice immediately.
