Illinois Lawyers Holding Doctors Accountable for Negligence

Everyone makes mistakes from time to time—even the best doctors and nurses. A simple mistake is not necessarily medical malpractice. According to Illinois law, medical malpractice occurs when a health care practitioner or facility makes an “avoidable” mistake due to carelessness and causes serious injury or even death to a patient. Stress, fatigue, overscheduling, and the rush to treat patients can lead to serious avoidable mistakes.

Speaking with an experienced medical malpractice attorney about your situation can help you determine whether you should pursue a medical negligence claim against your health care provider. For years, Thomas W. Lynch & Associates, P.C. has been helping Chicagoland residents like you find the legal representation they need to hold their health care providers accountable for medical negligence.
