Millions Won for Injured Patients throughout Illinois

Woodruff Johnson & Evans Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Doctors, nurses, and other medical practitioners have a duty to provide patients with a reasonable standard of care. In fact, the primary duty of medical professionals is summed up in the Latin phrase, primum non nocere, meaning, “Do no harm.” Unfortunately, medical professionals do not always follow this standard of care. The results can be devastating for victims and their families. When a doctor, nurse, hospital, clinic, or other healthcare professional or facility acts negligently, the victim or his/her family can take legal action.

Our Aurora-based medical malpractice attorneys have a proven track record of success; we have helped secure financial compensation in 99% of the cases we have taken on.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

In short, medical malpractice occurs any time a health care professional or medical facility acts negligently. When this negligence leads to injuries, the victim or the surviving family members can file a medical malpractice claim. These types of claims allege that the standard of care was breached and that this led to physical injuries and other damages.

Some of the most common examples of medical malpractice/negligence include:

  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia injuries
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Incorrect diagnosis
  • Emergency room errors
  • Surgical errors
  • C-section errors
  • Failure to treat a medical condition

This list is not exhaustive; there are many other forms of medical malpractice. If you believe you are the victim of negligence, reach out to our team today to find out how we can help. Our medical malpractice lawyers serve clients throughout the state from offices in Aurora, Champaign and Chicago.

Why You Need A Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical malpractice claims comprise some of the most complex types of personal injury claims. In many cases, the hospital or medical facility at fault will protect negligent doctors and nurses in order to uphold their reputation. The at-fault insurance company will often deny or devalue claims, stating that you accepted the “known risks” of a certain procedure. It can be incredibly difficult to prove that a doctor or nurse acted negligently, and you must also prove that you would not have suffered the injury had another doctor or nurse performed the procedure or given you care.

At Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices, we have more than 100 years of collective legal experience. Our attorneys know how to fight back against large insurance companies and medical providers. We are not afraid to take your case to court whenever necessary. We understand just how difficult it is to find that your trust in a doctor or hospital has been violated. Because of this, we work to handle every aspect of your claim in order to ease your stress and allow you to focus on healing.
