Chicago Medical Malpractice Lawyers
When we go to a doctor or hospital, we all expect to receive the highest level of care from our physicians. However, many people are severely injured and sometimes die as a result of mistakes made by doctors. A medical malpractice claim is a claim of medical negligence by a health care provider who fails to follow the accepted standards of practice and care for the relevant procedure. Professional health care providers, which include doctors, nurses, dentists, technicians, hospitals, nursing home facilities and any person or entity that provides medical care, need to be held accountable for the pain and suffering they cause their patients as a result of their negligent treatment. Medical malpractice can also occur through outpatient services or if issues arise with prescription medication.
