Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Aurora

Pursue Legal Action & Safeguard Your Quality of Life

Sick and injured patients frequently entrust their health and safety to medical professionals who are required to provide them with exceptional services and a reasonable standard of care. Unfortunately, hospitals and health clinics are alarmingly understaffed, which means that the priority of doctors, surgeons, and other medical staffers is to cycle through as many patients as possible. As a result, these overworked and exhausted healthcare professionals are realistically unable to provide the level of care that each patient needs and deserves. This gross negligence often leads to catastrophic—and preventable—medical complications and fatalities.

If you’ve been injured due to the negligent actions of your medical care provider, contact the Aurora medical malpractice attorneys at Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices. Our legal team has a 99% success rate and has helped countless clients secure damages in medical malpractice lawsuits.

Is your injury a consequence of medical negligence? Call our medical malpractice lawyers in Aurora at (630) 585-2320 to learn the benefits of pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Determining Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital or medical professional acts negligently and causes injury to a patient. Per the statute of limitations in Illinois, a victim has 2 years to seek damages by filing a medical malpractice claim. This countdown begins when a patient either sustains or discovers an injury. It’s important to seek legal assistance as soon as possible because the court may refuse to hear your case once the statute of limitations has passed. An experienced medical malpractice attorney at our firm can evaluate your case, explain any applicable legal exceptions to the statute of limitations, and help you determine if you’re able to file a claim.

Common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Medication errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Incorrect diagnosis
  • Anesthesia injuries
  • Birth injuries
  • Failure to treat a medical condition

For many reasons, medical malpractice is often considered the most difficult personal injury case to litigate. In fact, a claimant’s legal team needs to prove four factors before a case can be considered medical malpractice.

A medical malpractice claim must include the following factors:

  1. A doctor-patient relationship existed
  2. There was a violation of the standard of care
  3. An injury was caused by a negligent action
  4. The injury resulted in significant damages

If you believe that you are the victim of medical malpractice, it’s imperative that you seek legal representation immediately. If your lawsuit is successful, you may be awarded compensation that recovers your lost wages and covers any immediate and future medical expenses.

When Russell Haugen took my case, I never had to follow-up as he ensured that I was always updated on the status.

It was a very long process for me as I started my case with one of their former colleagues then it was assigned to Russell Haugen, who worked diligently to finalize the case. From the beginning, he took the necessary time to clearly explain the position of the case, the potential timing of all the […]
