Medical Malpractice Representation
Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, killing about 400,000 people every year. In Illinois alone, there are about 400 medical malpractice payments made annually, totaling millions of dollars.
However, doctors and hospitals that commit medical errors are often unwilling to come forward voluntarily. At Lewis Law Firm, we hold doctors, hospitals and other healthcare practitioners accountable for their negligence.
Our attorneys represent clients who have been injured or killed by negligent health care providers – hospitals, doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, dentists, chiropractors, podiatrists and more. Most of the time, a negligent act by a medical professional doesn’t rise to the level of a crime, but it does provide the basis of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Medical malpractice is often the result of things like:
- Reduced staffing or hours of monitoring at medical facilities
- Failure to hire and train skilled medical workers
- Not following medical guidelines or Illinois laws
- Inadequate policies and procedures
- Doctors who practice non-standard methods
