Every doctor and medical professional must meet what is called a standard of care. Negligence to provide this treatment, misdiagnosis, and other medical errors fall under medical malpractice. An instance of medical malpractice can happen as soon as you go to your doctor for diagnosis and as late as post-operation or after treatment. Depending on your situation, you may have a claim against your medical professional for malpractice in Illinois. Let an experienced and sympathetic medical malpractice lawyer help. As experienced Chicago lawyers, we can establish who was at fault and pursue a malpractice claim so that you can move forward from the medical mistake.Find your injury here

In Illinois, property owners are required to maintain a duty of reasonable care. This means that if you were injured while running errands or simply visiting a friend, you may have a premises liability case if we can establish that the duty of care was breached. We also have to show that your injury wouldn’t have happened if the property manager, property owner, or another responsible party had acted on the issue that caused the injury. Premises liability cases are complex and can involve many layers of evidence. We have years of Chicago premises liability experience helping people hurt on others’ property and can help you with this process.Learn more about premises liability

On May 4, 2014, an intoxicated driver turned directly into the path of our client, a 55-year-old female, on Route 83 near Valley Road in Downers Grove, Illinois. Our client sustained multi-level injuries to her cervical spine. An MRI of our client’s cervical spine found broad based disc protrusions (herniations) at C4-5 and C6-7, which caused intense pain and radiculopathy due to the compression on her nerves.
Despite the other driver who caused the accident pleading guilty in traffic court to the offense of reckless driving, his insurance company failed to offer a reasonable settlement amount. As such, the Chicago car accident lawyers at Staver Law Group filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client in the Circuit Court of DuPage County. We were able to convince the judge assigned to the case to grant us the ability to ask for punitive damages at a jury trial due to the defendant’s willful and wanton reckless conduct in driving while under the influence of alcohol. After lengthy negotiations, we were able to convince the insurance company to pay $100,000.00 dollars to settle the case, which was the maximum amount of their insurance policy.
