When healthcare professionals fail to provide the expected standard of care, they must be held accountable.

At the Crosby Law Firm, we fight to protect our clients’ rights at every turn. We carefully navigate the complexities of medical malpractice in Rockford, IL. Our goal is to put individuals affected by medical errors on the path to justice.

Identifying Medical Malpractice in Illinois

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to take necessary action or provides treatment that is below the standard of care, resulting in patient harm, injury, or death.

Some common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis leading to improper or delayed treatment
  • Unwarranted surgery or insufficient postoperative care
  • Surgical errors, such as leaving instruments inside a patient
  • Failing to consider a patient’s medical history
  • Inadequate warnings to patients about significant treatment risks

At the Crosby Law Firm, we’re adept at investigating even the most complicated medical malpractice cases. Our lawyers dedicate themselves to advocating for the rights of victims and fight to hold medical professionals accountable.

We also carefully handle the lengthy legal processes involved in building each case. These include everything from reviewing extensive medical records to negotiating with defendants’ insurance companies.

Understanding Compensation for Victims

Dealing with the aftermath of medical errors can be emotionally and financially overwhelming. Victims of medical malpractice face long term challenges that impact every aspect of their lives. Legal action can provide a pathway to compensation for:

  • Costly Medical Bills

Compensation can cover both current and future medical expenses related to the injury or illness incurred.

  • Lost Wages

Compensation can be sought for income lost and potential future earnings impacted by the resulting injury.

  • Punitive Damages

In cases of egregious medical negligence, punitive damages may be paid in addition to compensatory damages. Punitive damages serve as both punishment and as a means of discouraging similar action in the future.

  • Pain and Suffering

Compensation can be sought for physical and emotional distress resulting from the victim’s injury.

  • Loss of Consortium

Partners or family members may receive compensation for losing benefits once gained from their relationship with the victim. These may include loss of companionship, sexual intimacy, guidance, etc.

Our firm has experience working on a wide range of medical malpractice cases. Whether a client has been harmed due to the action or inaction of a medical professional, the Crosby Law Firm is committed to pursuing their right to compensation.

Illinois Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice

In Illinois, the window for filing a medical malpractice claim is 2 years from when the injury was discovered. A medical malpractice lawsuit also can’t be filed more than 4 years after the date on which the medical error took place.

In cases where the victim is under 18 years of age at the time of the malpractice incident, the deadline changes. These cases must be filed within 8 years of the date on which malpractice occurred. However, under no circumstances can a lawsuit be filed after the injured party reaches age 22.

These rules emphasize the importance of promptly seeking legal advice when medical malpractice occurs.
