Who Can Be Held Accountable in a Medical Malpractice Claim?

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 Harvey L. Walner & Associates, we have 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.
