Chicago Improper Treatment Attorneys

Modern medical science offers a range of amazing treatments that can cure dangerous illnesses and alleviate painful symptoms. Some people rely on a supply of pharmaceuticals to keep their cholesterol levels under control. Some people undergo surgeries to reduce their risk of heart failure. These treatments are generally prescribed by a trusted healthcare professional. We rely on our doctors, nurses, and other specialists to properly diagnose your medical problems and to then set up an appropriate treatment for the issue. Tragically, many people fall victim to negligent medical professionals who give them improper treatments.

As the Chicago medical malpractice attorneys at Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC well know, receiving improper treatment can have disastrous consequences. It is not a simple mistake with an easy fix. The unnecessary, incorrect treatment itself could hurt you. You might suffer from side effects you never should’ve experienced. In addition, getting the wrong treatment might mean you’re not receiving the proper medical help you actually need. If you are the victim of improper treatment caused by medical malpractice, you might be legally entitled to financial compensation. Click here to see how our attorneys can help you.

Medical Malpractice and Improper Treatment

Illinois law has high expectations for all medical professionals. Legally, doctors, nurses, and other hospital employees must treat all patients with care. If they behave recklessly, or if they don’t have the knowledge or skills they should, then someone can get seriously hurt—even die. Healthcare professionals who fail to properly care for their patients might be guilty of medical malpractice.

Patients suffer from improper treatment due to a variety of reasons. Some examples of dangerous mistakes that can lead to improper treatment include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to carefully review patient information
  • Outdated or incorrect medical knowledge
  • Clerical errors
  • Incorrect application of appropriate treatment
  • Surgical errors

This is certainly not a complete list of the causes of improper treatment. Patients find themselves taking the wrong medicines or undergoing inappropriate procedures for a wide variety of reasons. In addition, it can be difficult for an average person to tell whether medical malpractice is to blame for their incorrect treatment. If you have been injured due to an incorrect treatment, you should seek experienced legal counsel as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J.F.
