Medical Negligence

Medical Negligence

The United States arguably has the best health care available in the world. However, despite the high standard of care, medical negligence can result in serious injury or death. The medical negligence lawyers at Nolan Law Group in Chicago understand the pain and devastation that individuals and families can experience when they have put their faith and lives in the hands of a health care professional or institution only to have that faith shattered by negligence or misconduct.

Medical malpractice claims can include actions against doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, home health care workers, dentists, hospitals or anyone in the medical profession who causes harm to you or your loved ones.

Broad Medical Negligence Legal Knowledge and Experience

When you choose to work with a Chicago medical malpractice attorney at Nolan Law Group, you are benefiting from our team’s experience. Our firm has registered nurses on staff and well-known medical experts whom we have worked with for years. Together with your medical negligence attorney, they will work tirelessly to build a winning case.

Some of the types of medical negligence cases Nolan Law Group handles include issues related to a failure to diagnose a condition, a failure to run tests, misreading tests and X-rays, inadequate staffing, no doctor available to diagnose or treat medical conditions, or improper processes.

In addition to general medical negligence matters, two specific areas where you may need a Chicago medical malpractice lawyer relate to birth injuries and surgical injuries.

Birth Injuries

Approximately 5 percent of all children born in the United States have some form of birth defect or physical abnormality. While many of these birth defects are relatively minor and naturally caused, some are derived from medical malpractice and can cause lifelong disabilities and premature death. The Chicago medical negligence lawyers at Nolan Law Group are skilled trial lawyers who handle personal injury claims against doctors, nurses and hospitals for birth injuries resulting from negligence.

We have been successful in obtaining compensation for infants with injuries related to fetal distress and complications arising from negligent vaginal birth after a cesarean (VBAC), as well as other injuries due to medical negligence and error during labor and delivery.

Nolan Law Group has experience in and is currently evaluating cases involving:

  •  Fetal distress
  •  Failure to diagnose
  •  Brain injuries
  •  Abruption of placenta
  •  Surgical errors

Surgical Injuries

A doctor often undergoes years of academic and medical training to prepare for a career as a surgeon. Likewise, a physician’s assistant and surgical technicians also receive extensive training before being allowed to assist with these delicate procedures.

However, despite having received this tremendous amount of training, mistakes can and do happen. Although surgery does involve some degree of risk, all too often, permanent injuries result from a medical professional’s negligence.

Nolan Law Group has successfully helped victims of medical malpractice and surgical negligence obtain fair and just compensation. In fact, our team of expert attorneys has recovered millions of dollars in verdicts on behalf of clients.

Nolan Law Group has experience in and is currently evaluating patients who have suffered surgical injuries such as:

Surgical instrument left in the body

  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Wrong surgical procedure
  • Damage from a planned surgery
  • Spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis
  • Severed arteries
  • Anesthesia errors
