Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyer Serving Illinois
Chicago attorney helps victims recover full compensation
Physicians and other healthcare providers owe their patients a duty to provide a professional standard of care, demonstrating the same level of skill that fellow practitioners generally exercise. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Richard L. Berdelle, Jr., P.C. helps medical malpractice victims recover compensation for their injuries, including past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.
Experienced medical malpractice attorney advocates for you
Richard L. Berdelle, Jr., P.C. has successfully represented medical malpractice clients in Chicago and throughout Illinois, obtaining generous awards on cases involving:
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth injuries
- Emergency room errors
- Medication errors
- Negligent nursing home care
- Surgical errors
To prevail on a medical malpractice claim, an injured plaintiff must usually retain expert medical testimony to establish that the care was negligent care and the negligence caused harm. I regularly consult with a number of licensed medical professionals and retain prominent medical experts who have a gift for clearly explaining medical mistakes to jurors.
Timely action is vital to preserve your claim
Illinois law sets statutory deadlines for filing medical malpractice claims. In addition, investigating your malpractice claim immediately after the injury occurs preserves crucial evidence and valuable testimony.
