Do you have a case?

Medical malpractice law defines negligent medical conduct as the doing or the failure to do something that a reasonably careful doctor or other healthcare professional in that field would or would not do under the same or similar circumstances.

Be aware that not all bad outcomes of medical procedures are subject to litigation. Our skilled Illinois medical malpractice attorneys can determine if you are entitled to compensation and advise you on the best way to proceed.
