Chicago Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Regardless of how well-meaning medical practitioners are, their mistakes can be devastating to patients.  Medical malpractice causes over 98,000 wrongful deaths per year, and medication errors injure more than 1.3 million people.

The Chicago malpractice lawyers of Phillips Law Offices understand that behind the statistics are real people whose lives are inexorably altered or ruined by medical mistakes and errors by doctors and hospitals.

As a leading medical malpractice law firm in Chicago, we have over 65 years of experience fighting for Illinois malpractice victims and their families to get them the financial compensation they need and deserve.

Medical malpractice cases are among the most challenging of all personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits to win.  Just because a patient suffers a poor outcome is not enough to bring a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.  To constitute medical malpractice, you must prove that negligence or wrongful conduct on the part of the healthcare practitioner or facility, or the failure to take reasonable and proper action, resulted in harm to the patient.  Harm often encompasses financial losses, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as physical or mental impairment.

A skilled medical malpractice lawyer in Chicago, such as the attorneys at the Phillips Law Offices, can assess whether a particular claim merits taking legal action.  And the Phillips Law Offices can provide the array of resources necessary to investigate the case, enlist medical experts, and prepare a convincing courtroom presentation.

Our legal team is experienced at handling all types of medical malpractice cases, including the following:

  • Mistakes by surgeons and emergency room doctors
  • Failure to diagnose or delayed diagnoses
  • Birth injuries
  • Dental malpractice
  • Negligence by hospital staff
  • Laboratory testing errors
  • Oversights when reading diagnostic tests
