Frequently, victims of malpractice are unaware of their legal rights and fail to pursue compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses. If you were injured or misdiagnosed, or if you experienced any condition that you even suspect may be the result of medical negligence, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation right away.
Our attorneys have decades of experience investigating medical malpractice cases, and we work with trusted physicians, investigators, and other professionals who can help us determine if you may have a claim for significant financial compensation. We can help you, but only if you give us a call.
Since 1994, Malman Law has helped thousands of clients recover insurance settlements and damages for medical bills, missed time from work, loss of enjoyment of life, and other economic and non-economic losses stemming from a wide variety of forms of malpractice. The cases we handle include:
While most malpractice cases involve mistakes and errors in judgment by physicians and other medical professionals, with increasing frequency, malpractice claims are involving hospital administrators and insurance companies as well. If a bureaucratic process or an issue with insurance results in a delay or interruption of treatment, this too can give rise to a claim for financial compensation.
Without a medical background, you cannot be expected to know how a medical mistake will impact the rest of your life, and some other personal injury lawyers may even refuse to take your case because they don’t have the knowledge and resources necessary to fully investigate the scope of your future losses. At Malman Law, we conduct exhaustive investigations to determine the causes of our clients’ injuries and identify all of the responsible parties so that we can fight for every last dollar our clients deserve.
At Malman Law, we help victims of medical malpractice in the Chicago area fight for fair compensation. We represent clients who have suffered injuries in doctors’ offices, hospitals, and other medical facilities throughout the Chicago area. These include, but are not limited to:
To find out if you are entitled to financial compensation for medical malpractice, we invite you to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our experienced lawyers. If you are unable to travel to our offices in downtown Chicago, one of our attorneys will gladly come to you.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional harms a patient because he or she did not provide proper healthcare. Malpractice can occur in every area of medicine. The standards to determine medical malpractice can be different depending on the area of medicine. One thing remains the same, though: An error of some sort was made that caused you or a loved one to be hurt or even killed.
If you believe that you were a victim of malpractice in Chicago, you should call Malman Law. Your case should be evaluated by our medical malpractice lawyers. You may have a legal right to receive compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and even for wrongful death.
The consequences of medical malpractice can last a lifetime. To schedule your free evaluation, call Malman Law.
Medical malpractice and misdiagnosis may seem like they go hand-in-hand. However, they can be two different things. A misdiagnosis will not necessarily meet the qualifications of medical malpractice. Malpractice happens when a medical professional harms a patient because they made some sort of decision or mistake that caused harm to the patient.
Whether a misdiagnosis may be considered as malpractice depends on the information that the medical provider had at the time of your diagnosis and the steps that they took or that they did not take in coming to their conclusion. These two factors would be compared against the current medical standard in diagnosing the correct condition. If the actions that were taken fall below the current medical standard, then you would also need to show that you suffered some sort of harm as a result of the misdiagnosis. If so, then the misdiagnosis may be medical malpractice.
If you believe that your misdiagnosis may meet the requirements to be considered medical malpractice, contact Malman Law right away. We provide free case evaluations.
Medical malpractice is extremely serious. Malpractice causes harm to you or to your loved one. It can even cause death. Determining whether you have a malpractice claim in Chicago should be done by an experienced and compassionate attorney.
Having a potential medical malpractice claim evaluated by an attorney is important because medicine, despite how far it’s come, isn’t necessarily an exact and perfect science. Even when medical professionals follow best practices, things may still go wrong. When there is an unexpected outcome or injury because of medical care, it cannot automatically be labeled as medical malpractice. Primarily, malpractice focuses on whether a patient received a substandard level of care that caused the injury or death.
If you believe that you received poor care that resulted in an injury or wrongful death, call Malman Law. We provide free case evaluations for potential medical malpractice claims. If you have a claim, we will help you get the compensation that you deserve.
In some instances, cerebral palsy may be a result of malpractice. Symptoms of this disorder can be mild or severe. Cerebral palsy (CP) is often considered a birth injury. In many cases, CP can be caused by a mistake made by a nurse, doctor, or other medical personnel involved in the delivery process.
It can be difficult to determine whether cerebral palsy was caused by malpractice. This is why you need the guidance of a compassionate Chicago medical malpractice lawyer. In labor and delivery, certain standards should be met to protect the health and the safety of both mother and child. Cerebral palsy is often caused by a lack of oxygen during birth. In some cases, doctors or nurses may not have paid enough attention to the fetal monitor to determine if the baby was in distress.
Hospitals and insurance companies will deny that their inattention or lack of actions contributed to your child’s diagnosis. This is why you should consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. Other doctors, nurses, and leading specialists can be used as expert witnesses to determine if you and your child received the proper standard of care during labor and delivery.
Going to the doctor can be stressful enough without having to worry about if the doctor has made a serious mistake that may threaten your health. Unfortunately, there are cases of missteps, errors, and problems relating to the level of care provided by a doctor, and those errors can lead to long-term health problems, huge financial losses, emotional trauma, and even death.
With an estimated cost of over $55 billion per year, medical malpractice is a problem of epidemic proportions. Doctors and hospitals are forcing patients to pay billions of dollars for “preventive medicine” – prescribed specifically for the purpose of avoiding lawsuits – yet hundreds of patients still fall victim to malpractice each and every day. At Malman Law, we hold doctors and hospitals accountable for their negligence, and we have recovered millions of dollars for victims in the Chicagoland area and throughout Illinois.
When you visit a doctor or go to the hospital, you expect to receive professional medical care. You entrust doctors and hospitals with your health and well-being, and you rely on them to use their experience, judgment, and expertise to take care of your needs. Unfortunately, the reality is that medical providers frequently make mistakes – mistakes that can lead to life-altering and life-threatening conditions for their victims. We are here to help you recover your losses when something goes wrong.
One of the most common questions asked during our case reviews is, how much is my case worth? The answer depends on a large number of factors, including:
While many medical malpractice cases are resolved through insurance settlements, if a fair settlement offer is not on the table, we will not hesitate to take your case to court. We are experienced trial attorneys, and we are dedicated to helping our clients win the compensation they are rightfully owed. We have a 95 percent success rate across all cases for personal injuries and wrongful death, and our zero-fee guarantee means you can rest assured that we always have your best interests in mind.
If you suspect that you or someone you love may be a victim of malpractice, it is important that you stand up for your rights and fight for just compensation. Never assume that you don’t have a claim or that it will be too difficult or time-consuming to win the compensation you deserve.
The Chicago medical malpractice attorneys at Malman Law have helped numerous individuals just like you, and we have the dedication, knowledge, and resources necessary to help you quickly pursue a claim for maximum compensation.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
