Doctor & Nurse Negligence

Chicago Doctor Negligence Attorneys

Representing Illinois Victims of Doctor Negligence in Medical Malpractice Claims

Each year, thousands of people die as a result of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional–often a doctor–fails to provide medical treatment to the standard of care that is required, and a patient is injured or dies as a result.

Oftentimes when a medical mistake results in additional injuries or death, a doctor or hospital is at fault, but nurses, nurse practitioners, and other health care providers may be liable for medical malpractice as well. Regardless of the nature of the defendants, a medical malpractice case involves complex legal and factual issues, making it imperative to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

At Cogan & Power, P.C., our Chicago doctor malpractice attorneys have the skill and experience you need to pursue a medical malpractice claim against a doctor or the employing medical institution.
