We know that you are in an unexpected situation – medical professionals are sought for the purposes of healing and are never expected to cause us harm. You likely have a number of questions related to where to start, what to expect, and what can actually be done to improve your situation. Our Chicago medical malpractice lawyers are here to help and we have anticipated these questions.
How do I know if I have a case?
If you believe you have been the victim of malpractice, it is enough for a free consultation with our attorneys. From there, we will gather the pieces of information we need to continue. Ultimately, attorneys and judges will decide whether or not you have a case.
How much will this cost me?
If after your free consultation, we have decided to take on your case, we will offer what are called contingency fees. This means that we do not expect one cent from you until, and only if, we have been successful in winning your verdict or settlement.
I’m still in the hospital, how can you help?
We appreciate that you have taken steps toward your case as soon as you could. Our firm has the power to make accommodations for your medical expenses while you are in the hospital, if certain conditions apply.
Will I have to go to court for this?
If the liable parties want to take their chances in court, it is possible that you may have to testify. Most cases, however, are settled out of court, especially when we have the necessary evidence. We treat every case as if it is heading to court, and this usually gives us the advantage to end it before trial.
What is my case worth?
The value of a case varies widely. Some are deserved tens of thousands of dollars while others are deserved millions. It depends on the nature of your event and the degree of damage. We will put all of our resources and efforts in the direction of achieving your maximum verdict or settlement possible.
