Serving Chicago, Surrounding Suburbs and all Surrounding Counties of DuPage, Will & Lake.


Many forms of injury can result from surgical error or medical malpractice. These injuries can often lead to lifelong disability or wrongful death. A bad surgical result could be considered medical malpractice if your surgery involved:

  • Amputation of the wrong limb.
  • Tissue damage from the surgeon cutting into the wrong area.
  • Surgical instruments left inside the patient.
  • Surgery that was unnecessary.
  • Avoidable infection.
