Take Prompt Legal Action
Talk to our team of medical malpractice lawyers today if you suspect your Tinley Park doctor or other healthcare staff did not provide you with adequate care. The statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice suit in Illinois is two years from the date of the error or from when you discovered the problem, per 735 ILCS 5/13-212(a). Yet, some aspects of your case could shorten this window, so we recommend calling us as soon as possible.
We Seek Compensation for Every Aspect of Your Injury
The goal of any personal injury case is to recover damages for the injured party. In medical malpractice cases, those damages take several forms, comprising both economic and non-economic costs.
Any financial and personal losses associated with each aspect of your medical malpractice case could be eligible for compensation.
Unlike other personal injury cases, medical malpractice can require time and effort just to identify the problem in the first place. While you may associate damages with only the cost of treatment, you can be reimbursed for diagnostic-related expenses.
Eligible costs include:
- Emergency visits
- Imaging tests
- Specialist consultations
Whatever was necessary to identify your injury or diagnose your illness can and should be included in your case’s value.
Compensation for Your Condition’s Treatment
Once a condition is identified, all the costs associated with treatment also qualify for reimbursement, such as:
- Prescription medications
- Medical equipment
- Corrective surgeries
- Follow-up appointments
- Physical therapy
- Psychological counseling
The actual costs you face will depend on your injury. For instance, Healthcare.gov reports that treating cancer can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some treatment costs may even be lifelong if illnesses recur, or damage is permanent.
Your treatment damages are not just for past or present costs but future ones as well. A Tinley Park medical negligence attorney could consult your doctors to determine what you may need down the line.
Recoup Damages for Your Personal and Professional-Related Losses
Suffering unnecessary illness or injury does more than physical damage. The experience of being hurt by someone who was supposed to heal and comfort can be traumatic. Moreover, the consequences of malpractice can affect your professional and social lives.
Insurance companies may resist paying attention to or paying for these losses, but we know they are another consequence of the malpractice. For that reason, we can pursue damages for:
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
What did your doctor’s mistake cost you? That is the fundamental question we ask to pursue the appropriate damages for your case. Loss of intimacy with your partner, loss of your mental health, or loss of a loved one all entitle you to compensation.

How We can help Support Your Version of the Events
To validate the legitimacy of your case, our Tinley Park medical negligence attorneys can make use of:
- Medical records
- Witness testimony
- Injury or symptom photos
- Security video footage
- Second opinions
- Expert analysis
The latter is crucial. We can compile evidence, structure our arguments, and start building your case, but the medical authorities we consult know their field like we know ours. They can push back against a doctor’s claims that their actions did not deviate from the standard of care.
With the combination of our legal experience and our medical experts’ testimony, we can fight against attempts to deny or downplay your injury.
