Cook County Doctor Malpractice Attorneys

Des Plaines Physician Malpractice Lawyers

Lawyers for Physician Malpractice Cases in Addison and Elk Grove Village

When you visit a doctor to address a medical concern, you do so with the expectation that you will receive the best possible care that the doctor can offer. Most of the time, medical doctors live up to such expectations, but physicians are human, and they do make mistakes from time to time. Some mistakes have a relatively small negative effect on the patient while others can cause serious illness, injury, or even death.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our skilled medical malpractice attorneys realize that when a doctor fails to provide care in accordance with prevailing medical standards, he or she must be held accountable. We also understand that you might be feeling confused, overwhelmed, and hopeless following an illness or injury caused by a doctor's error, and we are here to help you through the process of taking legal action. Our team is committed to holding primary care physicians and medical specialists responsible for their mistakes that cause patients to suffer harm.

  • Not communicating properly with the patient or failing to follow up

Medical malpractice can occur in any medical setting, and it is committed by doctors of all specialties. Substandard medical care is never acceptable, and our attorneys are ready to assist you in your fight for compensation.

Helping Injured Patients in Cook County, Illinois

According to Illinois law, any medical professional has a duty to his or her patients to provide a similar level of care that a doctor with similar experience, training, and abilities would provide under similar circumstances. This is known as the prevailing standard of care or the medical standard of care. Under the prevailing standard of care, a general practitioner, for example, is only held to the standards that apply to other general practitioners, and cardiologists must adhere to the standards for cardiac specialists. Proving that a doctor did not maintain an appropriate standard of care typically requires expert witness testimony from other doctors in the same specialty. At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our team works closely with a number of medical experts, including many board-certified specialists who are often instrumental in helping us build a case for medical malpractice compensation.

Our lawyers also realize that hospitals, doctors' groups, and malpractice insurance carriers are often challenging to deal with when allegations of malpractice are made. We are not afraid of massive healthcare systems, their insurers, or their attorneys, and we will not be bullied into giving up the fight. Instead, our attorneys will continue to work hard for you until you secure the compensation you need to put your life back together.
