If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice in Naperville, Illinois, you want a personal injury law firm you can trust to help you obtain the justice and compensation you deserve. Mark Wilson Law has extensive experience helping clients who have suffered from medical negligence.

A medical malpractice claim can be filed for a wide array of reasons, but the most serious cases often involve birth injuries or wrongful death due to an injury caused by the carelessness or negligence of a medical professional.

These are often devastating situations and it can be difficult to search for the right personal injury lawyer while you are dealing with a severely injured child or the loss of a loved one. We understand that, and are happy to work with you to set up a free consultation where you can learn about your legal options and if we are the right fit for you.

The Process of Filing a Medical Malpractice Case

Medical malpractice cases involve bringing a claim against a medical professional for negligently injuring a patient. Our team of medical malpractice lawyers for Naperville, IL will help you prove that the healthcare professional violated a specified standard of care, which caused significant harm. Examples of medical malpractice can include misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, premature discharge, misinterpreting laboratory results, unnecessary surgery, improper medication/dosage, poor follow-up care, and anesthesia errors.

Common Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice injuries can range from heart palpitations and bleeding caused by improper medication to traumatic brain injuries that have fatal consequences. Medical misdiagnoses are also extremely common, with about 12 million adults seeking outpatient medical care being misdiagnosed each year.

Some cases involve victims spending prolonged periods of time in the hospital to receive more medical treatment. Lawsuits against OBGYNs are frequently due to negligent care before, after, or during childbirth. Birth injuries can be difficult to prove, especially when the injury is discovered years after the child’s birth. However, having a knowledgeable birth injury attorney on your side can ensure your child receives the compensation they are entitled to.

Proving Your Case

To earn a successful verdict in a medical malpractice suit, four things must be proven, including a duty of care, negligence, a link between the doctor’s actions and the poor outcome, and finally proof that the injuries sustained resulted in economic and non-economic harm.

This harm can include physical pain and suffering, excessive medical bills, and an inability to work. Injuries can also be intangible, such as emotional trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder. Someone may only sue for medical malpractice if they have experienced harm.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice?

In Illinois, you generally have two years to file a medical malpractice injury claim in court, but the date may vary depending on when you learned about the error or whether doctors tried to cover up the act. The length of a medical malpractice lawsuit depends on the case, and one way to speed up the process is to negotiate a settlement.

Definitely would recommend Mark Wilson to anyone who’s looking for a great lawyer! Very knowledgeable, honest, reliable and compassionate. He helped me win my disability case. He truly cares about you receiving the benefits that you deserve. Is a very good listener and explained the steps of the process leading up to the hearing with the judge. Mark’s assistant Chris was always very courteous, friendly and helpful. After being denied twice on my own Mark was confident he would be able to help me receive my benefits.
