Medical Malpractice claims should be filed as quickly as possible because Illinois law limits the time you have to act.  Also on the practical side, Medical Records may be lost or altered over time, and the ability and willingness of Witnesses to remember important details about your Case decreases as memories fade.  Finally, medical injuries tend to be very expensive; money is needed for medical treatment, hospitalization, medication and rehabilitation —and often to replace lost income.
