Attorneys in Cook County for Those Who Have Been Injured by Medical Negligence

Northern Illinois boasts some of the best known and trusted hospitals and healthcare providers in the United States. Patients from all over the world come to Chicago to receive medical care at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, University of Chicago Medical Center, and other facilities throughout the region. While most patients do receive the care they need without problems, the unfortunate truth is medical mistakes occur much more often than the average person realizes. Medical errors, in fact, are generally considered to trail only heart disease and cancer as a leading cause of death throughout the country.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we have a great deal of respect and admiration for the work that medical professionals do and the dedication that they demonstrate to their patients. We also realize, however, that when negligence leads to a medical error, the negligent doctor or facility should be held fully accountable.

Medical Errors and Malpractice in Northern Illinois

When a medical error occurs, the error is not always evident right away. In some cases, the patient might not realize that anything is wrong until several weeks or possibly months have passed. The complex nature of medicine, along with the countless variables associated with a person's health, can make it hard to know for sure that a medical professional even made an error. In other situations, the mistake might be instantly obvious, and the patient may experience negative effects immediately. Both scenarios could result in serious injuries or illnesses, leaving victims and their loved ones feeling betrayed, angry, and unsure of what to do.

Attorney Gary A. Newland and his team are skilled professionals with more than 60 years of combined legal experience. We realize that not all medical errors are caused by malpractice or negligence, but the ones that are need to be addressed as quickly as possible.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we assist patients affected by:

Protecting your Rights in Schaumburg and Palatine

When a medical mistake occurs, most medical professionals and facilities are instructed by their attorneys and insurers to never admit that the error even happened, let alone to acknowledge fault or responsibility. As a result, proving that a doctor or hospital was negligent can be extremely difficult. At our firm, we are equipped to help you show that the care that you received was not in accordance with the appropriate current medical standards. We work closely with a vast network of medical experts who can help us investigate the circumstances of your case and to show that your care was substandard.

Our attorneys also understand that medical errors do not have to be catastrophic or deadly to constitute malpractice. A seemingly minor mistake could actually cause unexpected problems that last for the rest of your life. In a situation like this, the victim might not realize that anything is truly wrong until long after the window for taking legal action has closed. If you or a member of your family has suffered an injury or illness caused by a medical error, we can help you understand your options.
