Victims Of Medical Malpractice Have An Experienced Advocate

You trust medical professionals to provide the highest standard of care for you and your loved ones. When that does not happen, the results can be tragic.

It is not easy to realize that someone to whom you entrusted your life or the life of a family member breached that trust. Nevertheless, medical malpractice is one of the most common causes of injury and death in Illinois and the United States as a whole. At Chadwick & Lakerdas, our attorneys have proudly represented victims of medical malpractice in Chicago's Hyde Park for over 30 years, and we are ready to stand up for you.

Holding Health Care Professionals Responsible For Errors

Medical malpractice is not the cause of every bad outcome. There are risks to every medical procedure. Malpractice is the result of a professional who causes injury or harm through carelessness or deviations from reasonable standards of care. Examples of cases we have the experience and skill to handle include:

  • Lack of fetal monitoring during labor or delivery
  • Surgical errors, including infection
  • Missed or delayed diagnoses
  • Misinterpreted X-rays, slides and ultrasounds
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Premature discharge
  • Emergency room mistakes

The lawyers at Chadwick & Lakerdas have a reputation for tenacious and zealous representation, both in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. If you or a loved one suffered illness or injury at the hands of a medical professional, our lawyers will put our combined 60 years of experience to work for your case.
