 Need an Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney?

When you come under the care of a doctor, you trust that doctor will help you. If you are injured, they should be held accountable.

We commonly entrust our health to doctors and hospitals, expecting them to care for us with their knowledge, experience, and professionalism. That is why it is especially distressing when a negligent physician or medical staff causes injury to a patient.

If you or someone in your family has suffered because of this, it may be a case of medical malpractice and you may be entitled to compensation. Talk to an experienced Chicago medical malpractice attorney at Willens Injury Law to see how you can pursue a malpractice claim.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

chicago woman being prepared for botoxWhen a medical professional or healthcare provider causes injury to a patient through negligence, it can be considered a case of medical malpractice. Liable parties can include doctors, nurses, hospital staff, pharmacists, medical device companies, and even hospital management.

In order to bring a valid malpractice claim, the injured party needs to establish four legal elements:

That the medical provider owed the patient a duty of care

That the medical provider failed or breached this duty

That this breach resulted in the patient’s injury

That the injury came with losses (or in legal terms, damages)

Without all four elements, a medical malpractice case cannot be pursued. While these elements can often be difficult to establish, especially when the at-fault party has a strong defense, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer in Chicago should be able to help you build a strong and successful case.

What To Do If You Suspect Medical Malpractice

Chicago Nursing Home Abuse AttorneysNot all outcomes of medical treatment that turn bad are due to someone’s negligence. Modern medicine still has its limitations, and bad outcomes are not always the fault of medical professionals.

If you suspect, however, that the failed treatment can be traced back to your physician’s or hospital’s carelessness, do not hesitate to discuss it with a knowledgeable attorney. A lawyer with the right team and network of experts can thoroughly examine your case to determine if malpractice has indeed occurred.

Types Of Medical Malpractice Cases

Malpractice in the medical field may be more common than you think. Here are some injuries that unfortunately occur due to medical negligence:

Birth InjuryBrachial Plexus InjuryCerebral PalsyDelayed DiagnosisEmergency Room ErrorsHospital NegligenceImproper TreatmentMedical Device Liability Medical Misdiagnosis Surgical ErrorsShoulder Dystocia Wrong Diagnosis Wrongful Death

Some infants are born with minor birth injuries that heal on their own, but others sustain moderate to serious injuries that cause lasting damage.

Also known as brachial plexus palsy or Erb’s palsy, is a birth injury on a baby’s shoulder that may damage the arm.

A delayed diagnosis of a serious illness may cost a patient valuable time and the chance to truly recover his or her health.

See Also: Heart Attack Delayed Diagnosis or Misdiagnosis

In the high-pressure environment of the ER, carelessness of medical professionals can gravely worsen a patient’s condition.

Hospital management may be liable for dropping patients, failing to sanitize or properly maintain equipment, failing to conduct staff screening, and more.

A doctor who prescribes outdated medication or inappropriate procedures has likely failed the accepted medical standards of duty.

Why A Medical Malpractice Attorney Is Crucial

Given the stress associated with serious medical injuries, many people are hesitant to pursue legal actions with an attorney’s help. Hiring a lawyer is often associated with fees and exhausting legal battles, and this additional strain may be the last thing you want to deal with.

But a medical malpractice case differs from other injury cases. When your medical care causes you injury instead of a cure, it most likely means additional medical costs, additional missed working days, and additional distress – on top of the suffering you have already experienced. Incurring this much loss is enough reason to fight for much-needed compensation.

Further, careless medical professionals need to face their responsibility before they can cause harm to other patients. In our decades of experience in this field, we know that physicians or hospitals that make a mistake rarely ever come forward and acknowledge it. This, combined with deep resources to protect themselves from lawsuits, allows many negligent doctors and medical providers to continue practicing without consequences.

chicago-tbi-attorney-medical-malpracticeTo get back on your feet and to stand up to negligent professionals, you should not have to go it alone. Consider that only 29 percent of medical malpractice trials in Illinois resulted in compensation for the patient, according to research by the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter. It is a challenging fight, but with a competent lawyer on your side, you can win.

Successful medical malpractice cases are a specialty of Willens Injury Law Offices, as proven by the many million-dollar recoveries we’ve obtained for our clients. With an experienced Chicago medical malpractice lawyer on your side, you won’t fear the process and our entire team provides considerate, compassionate service to minimize the stress associated with legal cases.

Common Defenses That Doctors Use Against Medical Malpractice Claims

We know it can be challenging to face medical practitioners who are prepared to fight malpractice claims. These are some common defenses they use to undermine your case:

Standard Negligence DefenseRespectable Minority PrincipleStatute of limitationsContributory Negligence

Standard negligence defense. This seeks to disprove that the doctor acted negligently or failed their professional standards. They could say, for instance, that the doctor upheld his or her standards of duty and that the injury wasn’t a result of the actions in question.

Respectable minority principle. If a “respectable minority” of medical professionals support the doctor’s line of treatment, he or her may have a valid defense.

Statute of limitations. This is one to bear in mind if you want to pursue a malpractice case. The statute of limitations sets a time limit for patients to file a lawsuit against their medical providers. In Illinois, you have two years from the date you discovered (or should have discovered) your injury to file your case; after two years, you could likely lose your right to pursue the lawsuit.

Contributory negligence. A medical professional could also assert that the injury was partly or wholly the fault of the patient. For example, the patient may have mixed up prescriptions or failed to inform the doctor of important elements from their medical history.

Facts And Statistics About Illinois Medical Malpractice Cases

Illinois is unfortunately rife with medical malpractice claims. According to the Illinois Department of Insurance, these were the medical specialties with the biggest malpractice damages in the state from 2005 to 2008:

  1. Surgery

  2. Obstetrics and Gynecology

  3. Internal Medicine

  4. General Practice

  5. Anesthesiology

Anesthesia Errors and Medical MalpracticeAs previously mentioned, the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter found that less than 30 percent of medical malpractice lawsuits that proceeded to trial in Illinois actually compensated the injured party. A separate report by independent research site True Cost of Healthcare shows that since 2003, the number of paid medical malpractice claims in the state has been declining. The same downward trend is seen in the total amount of medical malpractice payments in the state.

This sounds like bad news for patients in Illinois who are seeking justice for the harm caused to them by medical practitioners. It is far, however, from a hopeless battle. According to the Verdict Reporter research, on average, each favorable verdict awarded the patient with around $3,013,686. This means that it is still possible to obtain ample monetary compensation for malpractice injuries. The key is to have a robust case and powerful representation by a skilled medical malpractice attorney in Chicago.

How Much Will Your Medical Malpractice Case in Chicago Cost?

If you have been injured due to medical malpractice, you need to be prepared for a long and difficult case. The costs of litigation (and sometimes trial) will be expensive.  It’s not uncommon for a medical malpractice case to cost from $50,000 to $150,000 to litigate.

However, if we at Willens Injury Law Offices take your case, we will advance these substantial costs. More importantly, when it comes to medical malpractice cases, we have years of successful experience, which means you have a greatly enhanced chance of obtaining your ideal outcome. The monetary compensation and the sense of justice you can achieve can significantly contribute to your healing and future well-being.

What Kind of Compensation Can You Expect For a Malpractice Case

One of the most common client questions is how much they are entitled to in a medical malpractice claim. The answer varies widely depending on the circumstances of each case. To name some, these are factors that affect the value of your case:

  • The medical expenses associated with your case

  • Your future medical or rehabilitation expenses

  • Your missed earnings

  • Whether or not you will be able to work again

  • Whether or not you have a permanent injury

  • Whether or not you suffered emotional trauma due to your experience

  • Whether or not your injury has changed your quality of life

  • Whether or not the medical professional was grossly negligent.

As mentioned in the statistics above, the average award for successful patients in Illinois is $3,013,686. A medical malpractice payment, however, can go much higher than this. In fact, in the same research period, seven cases resulted in verdicts amounting to $10,000,000 or higher.

In general, you may be able to receive compensation for damages, medical bills, future medical treatments, physical therapy, lost wages, lost opportunities, pain and suffering, grief, and more. Further, your legal action may help make certain that the doctor will be more cautious with his or her future patients.

What is the Statute of Limitations in a Medical Malpractice Case?

Chicago Medical Malpractice LawyersStatutes of limitations can vary greatly from case to case.  It is crucial to contact an experienced lawyer if you suspect that a medical provider committed malpractice to, at a minimum, figure out whether you are eligible to make a claim under the statute of limitations.  In Illinois, generally, the time a competent adult has to file a medical malpractice lawsuit is 2 years from the date of discovering an injury is due to malpractice. But, unless you were under 18 when you underwent the malpractice, you cannot file a lawsuit more than 4 years after the actual date of the negligent medical treatment.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.
18:55 22 May 19

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

Matt has been there for us every step of the way. He, personally, has taken the time to answer all of our questions. We never feel like we are bothering him or pestering him. We have only experienced patience and professionalism from both Matt and his team.

After a bad auto accident, and months of rehab, Matt Willens and his staff worked with me as though they were part of my family. They were professional, courteous and looking out for my best interest during the entire legal process. I would highly recommend Willens Law Offices for any personal injury.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
