When Medical Help Goes Awry

Medical malpractice claims and hospital liability claims are among the most complex and hotly contested injury claims. Doctors and hospitals very rarely admit they did anything wrong or provided substandard care, and they vigorously defend against any such claims at all costs.

Unfortunately, they have a tremendous advantage in knowing the medical issues and in having access to all the records and a vast array of experts. As such, pursuing medical malpractice and hospital liability claims requires tireless preparation by a team of experienced attorneys who work with medical experts on detailed medical issues.

You Have Access To Equally Experienced Resources

If you believe you have been injured due to the negligence of a health care provider, you do not want to hire an attorney or firm that just "dabbles" in this area of practice. You want a firm that has attorneys who have vast experience in handling medical malpractice claims and who have tried these cases to a jury — successfully.

That is exactly what you get with Thomson & Weintraub, LLC. Our lead malpractice attorney, Terry Kelly, has a history of success in this area of practice. He has represented the victims of medical malpractice in numerous counties throughout Illinois and has obtained successful jury verdicts and settlements for his clients, some of which have exceeded $1 million.

Such cases have involved various types of medical errors, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Birth injury
  • Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis of heart attack, stroke or cancer
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Hospital-acquired infections/untreated infections

Medical Malpractice Cases Take Time, But We Will Guide You Through Each Step

If you believe you may have been the victim of medical malpractice, you need to talk to experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
