Medical Malpractice

Doctors, primary care physicians, nurses, surgeons, dentists, plastic surgeons, ER medics, anesthesiologists, physicians' assistants, hospital staff members, and other health care providers in Chicago and throughout Illinois must provide patients with a certain standard of medical skill and care. If failure to provide this level of care causes a patient to sustain injuries, become even more ill, or die, the negligent health care provider and possibly even the hospital or medical care facility where the medical mistake or negligence took place could be held liable through a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.

In DuPage County, Cook County, Will County, and Lake County, Chicago medical malpractice Attorney Joseph Klest represents clients who have been injured or lost a loved one because of medical negligence. Mr. Klest also has handled medical malpractice cases for clients in Illinois that reside outside the Chicago area. He would be happy to offer you a free consultation to discuss your case.

Chicago Attorney Klest represents clients in all kinds of medical malpractice claims and lawsuits, including cases involving:

* Physician Malpractice
* Birth Trauma
* Failure To Diagnose Cancer
* Nursing Malpractice and Abuse
* Surgical Malpractice
* Anesthesia Malpractice
* Drug Reactions

Medical Malpractice Cases in Illinois
In order to prove medical malpractice, a plaintiff must show that the health care provider was in breach of the duty that he or she owed to the patient and that this breach caused the person to sustain injuries. Recovery for medical malpractice cases in Illinois can include medical expenses, permanent injuries, lost income, pain and suffering, and other associated costs.

A medical malpractice is not the kind of personal injury case that you can make without the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer that understands the laws that govern medical malpractice claims and lawsuits in Illinois. Attorney Klest works with a team of top experts that know how to verify that your injuries were a result of medical malpractice. He has the resources to pursue your recovery so that your chances of receiving your medical malpractice compensation are maximized.

Statute of Limitations
There is a two-year statute of limitations in Illinois for medical malpractice cases. This means that the victim has two years from the time that he or she figured out that the injury or death was caused by medical malpractice to sue any liable parties. The medical malpractice incident leading to the injuries, however, cannot have occurred more than four years from the time the lawsuit is filed. Plaintiffs that were injured as minors have 8 years from the time of the medical malpractice event—but before turning age 22—to file a lawsuit.

Attorney Klest will zealously pursue your medical malpractice recovery for you. He will work hard to negotiate a settlement for you. He prepares every case as if he were going to trial. Mr. Klest is an experienced Chicago trial lawyer who has won medical malpractice and wrongful death lawsuits for many of his clients.
