Kane County Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Experienced and Compassionate Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Aurora, Illinois
Medical negligence is widespread, deadly and often difficult to identify. Johns Hopkins University reports that diagnostic errors alone are responsible for 80,000 to 160,000 deaths in the United States each year. Despite the prevalence and human toll, medical negligence cases are some of the most difficult to prosecute and to prove. Multiple parties, complex issues and “a conspiracy of silence” contribute to this difficulty. If you or someone you know has been the victim of negligent medical care, it is essential to obtain an experienced and aggressive malpractice attorney. You will not have a chance without one.
At Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C., we have a distinguished history of helping the victims of medical malpractice throughout Northern Illinois. We understand the medical and legal issues, and we know what it takes to win. Success requires substantial medical knowledge, access to good medical experts, financial resources to fund the case and the determination and perseverance to never give up. If we accept your case, we will be your voice until justice is heard.
Medical negligence can be committed by doctors, nurses, hospitals and clinics. It occurs in all practice areas, and it can take many forms. The most common include:
- Absent, Delayed, or Misdiagnosis
- Misinterpretation of Imaging
- Surgical Errors
- Treatment Errors
- Medication Errors
- Birth Injuries
Medical Malpractice Cases in Illinois
Although you do not pay for a malpractice case unless there is a recovery, the cases are very expensive and time consuming for your lawyer. They are expensive because the law requires that the case be screened with a medical expert before filing suit and that experts be hired during the case to prove the claims of negligence. These experts cost a lot of money. The cases are time consuming because the defense does everything possible to drag the case out and wear you down.
Because the time and expense is significant, only cases with serious injury or death hold the promise of a recovery sufficient to justify that investment. The only way to know whether your case should be pursued is to speak with a knowledgeable and experienced medical malpractice lawyer. You cannot make this important decision on your own. Discuss it with us, and we will make that decision together.
Experience Inside and Outside the Courtroom
In order for medical malpractice victims to be fully compensated, the lawyer representing them must have a strong track record of successfully trying cases in court. Any lawyer can settle cases and the internet and yellow pages are filled with thousands of them. But full and fair settlements are paid by medical malpractice insurance companies only when your lawyer is willing and able to try the case to verdict. It is only the credible threat of trial that keeps insurance companies honest and makes true justice possible.
At Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran & Masur P.C., our attorneys are some of the best trial lawyers in Illinois. That recognition allows us to obtain favorable settlements without trial, and, in some cases, without litigation. However, if the insurance company fails to do what is right voluntarily, which happens a lot in medical malpractice cases, we are ready to aggressively pursue justice inside the courtroom. We are soldiers in the struggle for justice. Fighting for you would be our highest honor.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed as a result of negligent medical care, contact Kinnally Flaherty Krentz Loran Hodge & Masur P.C. today at 630-907-0909. The consultation is free.
