Lawyers in Rolling Meadows for Professional Negligence by Primary Physicians and Specialists

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we know that medical professionals sometimes fail to adhere to the prevailing standard of care for their specialty or area of practice. When this happens, patients could be forced to suffer serious and life-threatening injuries. With more than 60 years of combined experience, our attorneys understand how hopeless and overwhelmed you might feel in the wake of an injury or illness caused by medical negligence by a primary care doctor or a physician specialist. We are dedicated to holding medical professionals accountable for mistakes that cause harm to patients.

Long Grove Injury Lawyers for Medical Malpractice Cases

Attorney Gary A. Newland and his team of experienced medical malpractice lawyers have been serving the residents of Northern Illinois for nearly three decades. During that time, we have secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients, many of whom were victims of medical malpractice. We are equipped to help you and your family pursue medical malpractice claims for issues related to:

  • Delayed diagnosis of a serious medical condition;
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose;
  • Medication errors, including prescribing an incorrect medication or dosage or failing to prescribe a necessary drug;
  • Signing off on discharging a patient from a hospital too soon;
  • Failing to refer the patient to a specialist;
  • Failing to communicate or follow up with a patient;
  • Failing to order imaging, laboratory tests, or other diagnostic procedures;
  • Misreading imaging or lab results, leading to unnecessary treatment or misdiagnosis; and
  • Failing to communicate significant risks related to the patient's treatment.

Malpractice is not limited to a specific specialty or area of focus. Any type of medical professional could make decisions that result in substandard care for their patients.

Protecting Your Rights in Lake County and DuPage County

Under Illinois law, medical professionals have a duty to their patients to adhere to the appropriate standard of care for their area of practice. This means that they must provide the same level of care that the average doctor with similar training and experience would provide under the same circumstances. Proving that a doctor was negligent generally requires the testimony of expert witnesses, such as other doctors and medical professionals. At Newland & Newland, LLP, we maintain a large network of experts, including board-certified physician specialists whose input can help us show that your doctor did not comply with the appropriate standard of care.

Our attorneys also understand that physicians' groups, hospitals, and malpractice insurance carriers can be very difficult to work with when malpractice has been alleged. We are not afraid of large health care conglomerates or their insurance companies, and we will not be intimidated into backing down. We will continue to fight on your behalf, both at the negotiating table and inside the courtroom, until you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
