You trust professional health care providers, such as doctors, hospitals, nurses, technicians, dentists and nursing home facilities to provide quality, accurate medical attention. Now you realize that negligence of a health care provider, who did not follow the criteria outlined for a relevant procedure, resulted in your injury or the death of someone you love. Here at Kralovec, Jambois & Schwartz, our Chicago medical malpractice lawyers have the experience, skills and knowledge of medical malpractice to help evaluate the circumstances surrounding your claim of carelessness.
We conduct an investigation to look at every aspect of your situation, checking on how tests were conducted, whether the correct treatment was prescribed and mistakes that may have been made during a surgical procedure. Cases involving hospital negligence are significantly more complicated than those involving your private health care provider. Our experienced staff will combat insurance companies and advocate for you, or on behalf of your loved one, to prove hospital or private provider liability.
Chicago Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose Law Firm
You may be unsure if your doctor did something wrong. The unfortunate reality is that physicians make many different kinds of diagnostic errors that can contribute to a malpractice claim. Two common types of medical malpractice are misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose a serious illness. Other common medical mistakes include:
- Misread x-rays, slides and ultrasounds
- Obstetrical negligence
- HMO misconduct
- Dental malpractice
- Medication and pharmaceutical errors
- Lack of informed consent
Accurate diagnosis is crucial to ensuring that you receive proper medical treatment, and failing to diagnose a disease or illness can delay or prevent necessary treatment. It can also lead to adverse drug reactions.
Protecting Your Interests
Once we establish medical malpractice, it is then vital to determine if the resulting condition is irreversible, will improve over time or was fatal. We also review the effects that your injury or the death of your loved one has on you emotionally, physically and psychologically, and then determine an appropriate amount of compensation that will help you deal with these challenges.
In addition to medical malpractice, we also handle personal injury, nursing home abuse and neglect, birth injury, wrongful death, product liability, motor vehicle accidents, brain injuries and premises liability.
