Medical Malpractice 

Let your Springfield, IL experts  evaluate your claim. 

Although the quality of healthcare in Springfield and Central Illinois is very high, healthcare providers are not infallible. They can make mistakes that can result in catastrophic consequences for both the patient and his or her family.

What is Medical Malpractice?

The official definition of medical malpractice is: “a legal cause of action that occurs when a medical or health care professional deviates from standards in his or her profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.”

But, of course there is much more to it than that, particularly the ability to prove it and the path to follow to pursue legal action.
