Orland Park Medical Malpractice Lawyer with Offices in Cook and DuPage Counties
Experienced Tinley Park and Oak Lawn Attorney Pursuing Compensation for Medical Negligence Victims
Medical negligence is a growing and insidious killer. Medical errors have become so prevalent, in fact, that it is now considered the third leading cause of death in America, taking more lives than both car accidents and respiratory disease. Only cancer and heart disease surpass its death toll. Yet doctors and hospitals remain, for the most part, silent. Some even attempt to cover up their mistakes, leaving victims - an injured patient or the grieving family of a lost loved one - to pick up the pieces. At Schwartz Injury Law, we believe they should not have to do it alone.
Aggressive Orland Park Medical Malpractice Attorney
When patients become victims of a medical error, hospitals and doctors rarely take responsibility for their actions. In fact, many have been trained to avoid admitting fault. So, they cover up their mistakes with claims that a treatment was medically necessary, or that there were unexpected complications. Often, this leaves patients and their families confused, suspicious, and feeling as if they have little to no recourse.
It takes a skilled attorney to accurately access their situation, one that understands the healthcare industry and has the experience needed to determine if there is a viable case. Our attorney has been representing victims of medical malpractice for more than 15 years.

Pursuing Compensation for Medical Errors
Sadly, not every victim of medical negligence pursues compensation. In fact, most medical malpractice awards go to those who have suffered a serious loss or injury that significantly impacted their lives. However, there are victims who initially discount the impact that an injury has on their life, only to later discover that the matter is more severe than they originally thought. Unfortunately, in some of these cases, by the time they make this discovery, the statute of limitations has already expired. Do not let this happen to you. Contact a skilled attorney about your case, before it is too late.
