Standing to File a Personal Injury Claim
When you met with our attorneys, one of the first things we will do is ensure that you have standing to bring a medical malpractice claim against St. Alexius Hospital.

Timing Your Medical Malpractice Case
In Illinois, as in most states, parties have two years to bring a medical malpractice action. If a medical malpractice claim is not initiated within two years, the case will not be successful unless the party with standing can assert a reason for which the statute is tolled. There are few exceptions to the statute of limitations. Therefore, it is important to bring a personal injury claim within the requisite time period. However, if you are unsure whether or not you or your loved one is within the timeframe for filing a personal injury claim, contact one of our attorneys today.
