Award-Winning Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a health care provider who fails to adhere to the accepted standards of practice that results in death or injury. Doctors, nurses, technicians, pathologists, hospitals, nursing home facilities, and any person that provides medical care can be professionally negligent.
We are award-winning Chicago medical malpractice attorneys dedicated to holding individuals and institutions in the medical field accountable for their negligence. In November 2019, a team of Clifford Law Offices medical malpractice lawyers obtained a record $101 million verdict on behalf of a baby who was brain damaged at birth at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park. See below for more of our results.
If you believe you’ve suffered from medical malpractice, talk with us. We will investigate the situation, look for signs of negligence or misconduct connected to your case, and file a medical malpractice claim against the appropriate party/parties.
