Medical malpractice, also known as medical or professional negligence, is a particularly specialized area of personal injury law that requires a comprehensive understanding of legal issues, medicine, and science. Often medical malpractice can happen when a workers’ compensation health care provider does not practice in accordance with the standard of care required for their area of practice when treating a patient, and this failure substantially contributes to a patient’s injury.
The Epstein Law Firm has been handling medical malpractice in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs for over 22 years. With this experience, we are prepared to handle even the most complex medical malpractice matters. In Illinois, there are statutes of limitations for filing medical malpractice lawsuits, so it is important to take action and contact a lawyer as soon as possible in order to receive the best possible outcome.
