What is medical malpractice?

Most of the time, medical personnel are strong, skillful and caring. They do their very best to give us the best of healthcare, ensuring we can live long and healthy lives with our loved ones.

Sadly, we find in some cases that the level of care provided by certain healthcare personnel falls below the required standard. Medical personnel cannot afford mistakes and this is why they are required to undergo painstaking training. When certain unqualified or unethical healthcare personnel expose you or your loved ones to harm, you have a right to sue for medical malpractice.

At Uchelitigation, we’ve been providing quality and successful legal representation for victims of medical malpractice and their family members in Chicago and Cook County. Our services include a free case review where we can help you examine your case and identify your options for a successful recovery.

Steps To Take

At Uchelitigation, we understand that seeking legal assistance can be a complex and intimidating process. That's why our team is dedicated to providing our clients with a supportive and personalized approach to legal representation.


Gather all relevant records

Hospital records Surgical records Clinic records Radiological films Pharmacy records Any other materials that may help to understand the nature of your treatment and injury sustained.


Reviewing the records

These records may be reviewed by a qualified med-mal attorney or given to an expert in the field. If it is determined that you have a good malpractice case, the process of determining the negligent parties and recovering financial compensation starts.


File a suit in the appropriate court

Your medical malpractice lawyer will file a suit for you in the appropriate court. In most cases, medical malpractice cases are usually settled before trial commences. This means that there’s a very good chance that you won’t even step into a courtroom before your case gets settled.


Going to trial

In the off-chance that your medical malpractice case does not get settled ‘pre-litigation’ or after filing a lawsuit, the case will then go to trial.

Who do you get compensation from?

Healthcare providers

When a healthcare provider or facility is responsible for medical malpractice, they may be held liable for compensating the patient for the harm caused by their negligence. Healthcare providers who may be held liable for malpractice include doctors, nurses, dentists, chiropractors, and other medical professionals. Hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities may also be held liable for the actions of their employees. You can expect compensation such as reimbursement for medical expenses related to the malpractice, compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. Uche P.C.’s medical malpractice attorneys will help you hold the healthcare providers liable by demonstrating that they breached their duty of care resulting in harm to the patient.

Malpractice insurance

Healthcare providers and facilities may sometimes carry malpractice insurance policies to protect themselves from financial losses in the event of a medical malpractice lawsuit. These policies typically cover the costs associated with defending against a lawsuit and paying damages if the healthcare provider or facility is found to be liable for malpractice.

If a healthcare provider or facility is found liable for medical malpractice, their malpractice insurance policy may provide an additional source of compensation for the injured party. We will help you investigate the situation and determine if the provider or facility has malpractice insurance and if it can be pursued for compensation.

Manufacturers of defective medical devices

In cases where medical malpractice involves a defective or dangerous medical device, compensation may be sought from the manufacturer of the device. Medical device manufacturers have a duty to design, produce, and market products that are safe and effective for their intended use. If a medical device is found to be defective or dangerous and causes harm to a patient, the manufacturer may be held liable for the resulting damages.

To establish liability against a medical device manufacturer, we will have to show that the device was defectively designed, manufactured improperly, or lacked adequate warnings or instructions. Another way we can establish liability is through regulatory oversight by government agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If a medical device manufacturer violates FDA regulations, this may be evidence of their negligence and may support a claim for compensation.

What kind of compensation can you recover?

There are several types of compensation you may recover after proving your claim. You can recover compensation for the following:

Physical and occupational therapy
Home health care
Loss of future earnings
Medical expenses like doctors’ bills, hospital bills, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and replacement services
Lost wages
Punitive damage
Pain and suffering
