Compassion For Families Of Medical Malpractice Victims

When medical malpractice or negligence claims the life of a patient, the medical professionals and/or hospital responsible must be held accountable. At Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our attorneys represent the loved ones of patients who have died due to the negligence of doctors, surgeons, emergency responders, nurses, hospitals and other medical providers.

We offer customized and compassionate representation to help people seek justice after a medical malpractice tragedy. Our work in medical malpractice cases includes many large verdicts and settlements for malpractice victims and their families.

The Duty Of Medical Professionals

Undergoing a medical procedure always includes some element of risk. Medical professionals are required to minimize that risk by adhering to the applicable standards of care. When those standards are not met, the results can be tragic. Our attorneys have decades of experience helping clients in Illinois in a wide range of medical malpractice cases. We represent family members whose loved ones died due to medical mistakes involving:

  • Misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors and unnecessary procedures
  • Dangerous drug interactions
  • Improper medications
  • Inattentive care in nursing homes or hospitals
  • Emergency room errors
  • Birth process errors

Evidence Of Medical Wrongdoing

Hospitals and medical personnel are not always forthcoming about mistakes that impact patients. Our firm has the resources to gather and present evidence of medical negligence. We work with medical experts and specialists to demonstrate exactly what went wrong to cause the death of your loved one. By bringing to light this key evidence, we help our clients get the justice they deserve while also making the health care landscape safer for future patients.
