When we think of medical malpractice suits, we often picture the defendants as doctors. After all, they’re the most visible characters in the medical drama. However, the process of treating a medical condition is a complicated one, and Illinois law allows for medical malpractice claims against a range of medical professionals.

At Walner Law, we have the utmost respect for the difficult work performed by medical professionals. Medical malpractice suits are not about vindictiveness or litigiousness: they’re about pursuing justice and compensation for the hurt and sick.

Our medical malpractice lawyers can pursue claims against:

  • Nurses
  • Orderlies
  • Hospital administrators
  • Anesthesiologists (anesthesia mistakes are common surgical errors)
  • Facility owners

This is far from an exhaustive list. The point is to make clear just how complicated and wide-ranging liability can be in a medical malpractice claim.

Our Illinois medical malpractice attorneys understand the difference between malpractice and a tragic outcome that couldn’t have been avoided. We are always open and honest with our clients about the wisdom of legal action.

If you’re a Chicago resident in need of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer, please contact Walner Law for a free consultation.
