Rockford Lawyers Providing Legal Solutions for Medical Malpractice & Related Injury Cases

More than 75 years of sound counsel for victims of medical malpractice

If you have suffered an injury as a result of malpractice committed by a doctor, nurse, therapist, or other medical professional, you may be entitled to compensation. These personnel and the institutions that employ them are responsible under the law for providing a certain standard of care. When they fail to meet that standard, they may be held liable for your damages and responsible for your medical bills and other expenses incurred as a result of the malpractice. Your spouse may also be entitled to compensation. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., our experienced personal injury attorneys have spent more than seven decades representing clients in even the most complex medical malpractice cases. We’ve consistently achieved substantial settlements without lengthy trials for our clients.

What constitutes medical malpractice in Illinois?

When the injury or death of a patient is caused by an act of negligence or omission on behalf of the patient’s healthcare provider, medical malpractice may apply. In most cases, the malpractice involves medical error, which affects one in ten patients worldwide and causes 7,000 deaths per year. Other types of medical malpractice include birth injury, medication errors, failure to treat, and surgical errors. In Illinois, victims of medical malpractice have a limited time to file a claim for compensation. It’s important to contact an experienced malpractice law firm as soon as possible to have the best chance of recovery.

What types of malpractice cases do we handle?

At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., we understand that medical malpractice results in more than physical pain: When the very people you trust to care for you wind up hurting you, the feelings of betrayal can be overwhelming. To ensure you are able to pay medical bills, recoup lost wages and receive damages for your suffering, our personal injury attorneys fight for the maximum possible settlement for you.

We won’t waver in our pursuit of compensation for the financial and emotional tolls of wrongful death, including:

  • Medical errors. Mistakes by a doctor or hospital can result in permanent injuries that dramatically alter your life. We represent clients in medical error litigation, including surgery, misdiagnosis, incorrect anesthesia and failure to diagnose. Our attorneys can help you understand your legal options and the dynamics at play in insurance negotiation and litigation.
  • Birth injury. The medical professional held liable for birth-related injuries may be responsible for medical and other expenses incurred as a result of the malpractice. The most common birth injuries include brachial plexus (the network of nerves that send signals from your spine to your shoulder and on down your arm to your hand), caput succedaneum (swelling of the newborn’s scalp), cephalohematoma (a collection of blood in the skull) and clavicle fracture. Whether these injuries to your newborn are caused by doctors, nurses, or other medical personnel, we fight for compensation.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect. When elderly loved ones suffer abuse or neglect at the hands of nursing home staff, we can pursue compensation for both physical injury and mental stress. We can also pursue recovery for medical and other expenses when we can prove liability.
