Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Champaign

Rely on a Firm with a 99% Success Rate

Sick and injured patients depend on medical professionals to prioritize their healthcare needs and provide them with a reasonable standard of care. However, medical staffers are frequently overwhelmed and overworked, which means that patients often fail to receive the attention and treatments their circumstances warrant. When hospitals focus on cycling through patients instead of treating them, rushing doctors, surgeons, and nurses start making devastating and preventable mistakes that ultimately lead to patient injuries.

If you’ve been injured by a medical professional while seeking treatment, you have the legal right to pursue justice by filing a medical malpractice claim. At Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices, our medical malpractice lawyers in Champaign can guide you through this complex legal process and effectively represent your case in court.

Contact our Champaign medical malpractice attorneys at (630) 585-2320 if you’re interested in filing a claim.

Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed by the negligent actions of a medical professional. Before you can file your claim, you need to determine if your situation constitutes medical malpractice. During your free consultation, we can discuss the circumstances of your injury, evaluate the applicable evidence, and prepare a case strategy that reflects your legal and financial objectives.

Common examples of medical malpractice include:

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

Because there are so many legal variables, medical malpractice cases are often considered the most difficult to litigate. A successful lawsuit relies heavily on the skills and experience of your legal representative.

Your legal team must be able to prove the following:

  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

The Statute of Limitations

Like all states, Illinois has a deadline when it comes to pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit. This 2-year countdown begins when a claimant is injured or when a claimant reasonably discovers their injury. It’s imperative that you retain legal representation as soon as possible because the court may refuse to hear your case once this deadline has passed.
