What Should You Look for in a Medical Malpractice Attorney in Naperville, IL?
When serious harm has occurred, malpractice cases are not easy, and they are not usually quickly resolved. Insurance companies, as well as the lawyers who represent them and the medical professionals in question, will often try to drag out cases to wear down patients. When choosing a law firm to represent your malpractice case, you need to know you can be confident in its long-term support from day one. JJS does not wait until the settlement table or the courtroom to begin representing our clients to the fullest extent of our knowledge, experience, and resources. Working with JJS means you can count on representation that takes into account all necessary factors.
- What the evidence says. In building the strongest case possible for you, we thoroughly investigate the facts of your case. We have the medical knowledge and resources to pursue the truth so you get a chance at not only financial compensation for the harm done to you but answers that can help you heal.
- What your treatment costs. Lawyers who represent clients injured by medical practitioners must be able to fully grasp the scope of patients’ current and future needs when it comes to medical care and treatments. In preparing a case that seeks to recover the appropriate amount in compensation, we make sure to bring in all possible resources, including in-house medical experts, to calculate the maximum recovery for your case.
- What it takes to fight all the way. Taking on big insurance companies and even healthcare organizations can be stressful for victims, and it can be expensive. Your law firm must have the financial resources to build the strongest case possible. An inexperienced, underfunded firm may have to push clients to take unfairly low settlements early in the legal process, and may not be prepared to take a case to trial if a settlement cannot be reached.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice?
The team at JJS can work with you to determine whether you have a valid claim for a malpractice lawsuit. If you do, JJS can help you fight to recover financial compensation for the damages inflicted upon you.
- Medical expenses. You should not have to be responsible for medical bills that you have incurred as a result of a healthcare professional’s negligence. Those bills may include emergency room visits, inpatient treatment and care, more surgeries, and even a lifetime of outpatient care. Malpractice claims can seek damages for your future medical expenses.
- Loss of wages or earning capacity. Being harmed by malpractice often affects your ability to do your job as you once did, sometimes permanently. When your injury impacts your ability to earn a living, you can seek compensation for those lost wages. Sometimes, compensation for damages is available for any future wages you may have had the potential to earn but now are prevented from earning as a result of your medical provider’s negligence.
- Non-economic losses. Illinois law grants victims of malpractice the right to seek compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering and a loss of quality of life. Experienced malpractice attorneys know how to best calculate the amount of compensation to seek.
