It is usually hard to tell or not always evident when you or family member has been injured or killed due to the negligence or wrongful act of a doctor, nurse, medical professional, or hospital. When it does happen, the effects can be devastating to the individual and the family members. The Southern Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers at our firm are ready, willing and able to guide you through the extremely complex terrain of medical malpractice litigation.
If you or a loved one is the victim of negligent medical care then Illinois law provides that you have the burden of proving the care that they received was not up to the standard of care in the community. If the standard is met or the facts show that the medical care was not up to the standard of care then you or your family may be able to recover damages related to medical expenses, lost income or wages, disability, emotional damages, pain and suffering and more. These cases can be significant as they are typically life altering occurrences.
