If you’ve suffered due to medical malpractice, it’s crucial to understand your legal rights and seek compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering, and other losses. Whether you were injured, misdiagnosed, or experienced any condition that could result from medical negligence, we urge you to contact one of our medical malpractice attorneys for a complimentary consultation without delay.

Our highly experienced medical malpractice team attorneys bring decades of experience investigating medical malpractice cases and collaborating with trusted physicians, investigators, and other professionals who can help determine if you have a valid claim for substantial financial compensation.

Common Causes of Medical Malpractice
We Handle

Gardi, Haught, Fischer & Bhosale LTD, and our team of medical malpractice lawyers have aided numerous clients like you in securing insurance settlements and damages for medical bills, lost work time, diminished quality of life, and other financial and non-financial losses resulting from various forms of malpractice.

While most malpractice cases involve errors and lapses in judgment by physicians and other medical professionals, it is increasingly common for malpractice claims to involve hospital administrators and insurance companies. If a bureaucratic process or insurance-related issue results in a delay or interruption of treatment, this, too, can give rise to a claim for financial compensation.

How Can Our Medical Malpractice Attorneys Help?

Without a medical background, you can’t reasonably be expected to comprehend how a medical mistake will impact the rest of your life. Some personal injury lawyers may decline to take your case because they lack the knowledge and resources necessary to investigate the extent of your future losses thoroughly. Our qualified and experienced medical malpractice attorneys conduct thorough investigations to determine the causes of our client’s injuries and identify all responsible parties, enabling us to fight for every last dollar our clients rightfully deserve.

The Average Settlement for Medical Malpractice

The settlement for your medical malpractice claim can vary significantly depending on the circumstances of your case. Several factors influence your compensation, including the severity of your injuries, medical treatment costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys will help you assess the potential value of your claim and understand the legal process involved in seeking compensation. Our legal team has secured millions of dollars in compensation from medical malpractice cases, including notable cases such as:

How Long Do You Have to File A Medical Malpractice Claim in Schaumburg?

A statute of limitations exists for malpractice cases, and the sooner you file the complaint, the easier it is for your attorney to locate evidence. The statute of limitations is a clock. If you exceed the limitations, you can no longer seek compensation, regardless of the strength of the evidence.

The Exception to the Statute of Limitations

As with any rule, exceptions apply. The statute commences on the date of discovery. Therefore, if you do not discover that you have been a malpractice victim for six years, the clock does not start counting down until then. However, the statute specifies that you must “reasonably discover.”

Common Types of Malpractice Claims

Various errors can cause your injury, leading to different types of malpractice claims. These errors, while constituting malpractice, may have different requirements. Sometimes, entities beyond the physician bear responsibility for your specific malpractice case.

Common types of malpractice claims include:

Prescription errors: These errors take various forms, such as failing to review your medical history, prescribing a medication that dangerously interacts with another, or prescribing something to which you are allergic. Correct instructions or clear directions may also force the pharmacy to dispense medication incorrectly.

Failure to obtain informed consent: For every medical procedure, risks are involved. Physicians are legally obligated to obtain informed consent from their patients, which entails informing patients of all options, risks, benefits, and the dangers of forgoing treatment.

Improper treatments used:The diagnosis may be correct, but the physician employs unconventional treatments or medications in a manner not intended.

Unnecessary procedures and treatments: In other cases, physicians opt for excessively aggressive treatments, leading to unnecessary procedures or treatments performed on patients. This may result in unwarranted medical expenses, pain, suffering, and mental anguish.

How Can I Prove Medical Malpractice?

The Requirements of Malpractice

For a viable malpractice case, several basic requirements must be met:

The existence of a doctor-patient relationship:You must establish that the physician you are suing has seen and treated you. If another physician was consulted but did not physically examine or treat you, their advice, even if incorrect, does not constitute the doctor-patient relationship required. Casual conversations with a physician at the dinner table do not establish a doctor-patient relationship.

Deviation from the standard of care:You must demonstrate negligence, which entails a deviation from the standard of care. Negligence involves falling below the acceptable level of care that other professionals with similar qualifications and experience would provide in the same situation.

Negligence causing your injuries:You must establish that the physician’s deviation from the standard of care directly caused your injuries.

Negligence resulting in damages Lastly, damages must be associated with the negligence. Damages may encompass lost wages, physical pain, mental distress, medical costs, and more. You cannot sue a doctor for malpractice if no damages are tied to the negligent act.

Standard of Care

The term “standard of care” frequently arises during a malpractice case. To determine whether a physician was negligent, you must prove that the defendant, the physician, breached the standard of care. This means demonstrating that the defendant’s conduct fell below what other professionals in the same field would consider an “acceptable” level of care. Essentially, the physician must have performed worse than another physician with similar qualifications and experience would have in the same situation.

For example, suppose a physician made an incorrect diagnosis, but you withheld information from the physician. In that case, the physician cannot be held liable for the incorrect diagnosis because they would not be expected to diagnose without the correct information.

In another example, if you provided all the information to the doctor, and the physician still arrived at the wrong diagnosis due to failure to conduct an in-depth examination or review laboratory tests that would have revealed a different diagnosis, you have a valid claim against the physician. In this instance, the physician ignored the obligation to care for you and ultimately arrived at an incorrect diagnosis.

Seeking the Medical Malpractice Damages You Deserve

Regardless of your situation, our medical malpractice attorneys meticulously assess your losses to pursue full compensation for your needs and entitlements.

Common damages include:

Medical expenses: If you require additional medical treatment due to medical malpractice, you should receive complete compensation for all bills and expenses, including future medical care, after your claim is resolved.

Lost income: If your injuries prevented you from working for a period or indefinitely, we can seek compensation for your lost earnings. We can also calculate potential lifetime lost income if you can no longer work in the same capacity.

Pain and suffering: In addition to economic losses, we can pursue compensation for non-economic damages, encompassing physical pain and suffering, mental distress, trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.

While Illinois does not permit plaintiffs to seek punitive damages for medical malpractice, it is also one of the few states that do not impose caps on economic or non-economic damages. Our aggressive team of medical malpractice lawyers will strive to secure the maximum compensation allowed under the law.

Wrongful Death Damages Due to Medical Malpractice

In Illinois, wrongful death claims must be filed by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. This representative may be an individual designated in a will or appointed by the probate court if there was no will. The personal representative can seek damages, which will then be distributed to surviving spouses, children, parents, or other close relatives in accordance with the law.

Some damages that an estate and family members might recover following a traumatic and unforeseen loss due to medical malpractice include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses.
  • Loss of financial support that the family would have received from the deceased had they lived and continued working.
  • Loss of consortium refers to the lost companionship and sexual relationship with a deceased spouse.
  • Loss of support, education, instruction, and moral training to children from a deceased parent.
  • Sorrow, grief, and mental and emotional suffering experienced by surviving family members.
    • At Gardi, Haught, Fischer & Bhosale LTD, our medical malpractice lawyers understand that the unimaginable can occur, and families may prematurely lose loved ones due to medical malpractice.
