Medical & Dental Malpractice

If you believe that you or a loved one have suffered due to negligent medical care or that a health care provider has made an error in your treatment, you need the advice and counsel of an authoritative and highly experienced malpractice attorney, such as the lawyers at Adler & Adler, P.C.

What may appear to be a malpractice claim against one professional may actually encompass errors or negligence on the part of several health providers. Negligence claims can include such health care professionals as doctors, physicians' assistants, dentists, pharmacists, and radiologists as well as medical clinics and hospitals. In some cases, what may appear as a medical malpractice case is the result of a defective medical implant or dangerous medication. In such instances, you may have a Product Liability claim.

Our attorneys have the expertise required to help you determine whether your situation is cause for a malpractice claim, identify all liable parties, and thoroughly and aggressively pursue your rights to maximum compensation. Senior Partners Mark Adler and Valerie Harris Adler bring authoritative, expert knowledge to each malpractice case—knowledge that is critical for obtaining full compensation for serious illness or injuries. While many cases are negotiated and settled out of court, we are always prepared to stand up to insurance companies and take a case to trial if doing so will lead to an optimal financial outcome for our client.

We offer free initial consultations—you take no risk in meeting with us. If we don't recover compensation on your behalf, you don't pay. We are available 24-hours a day at (312) 443-1488. Do not hesitate to call—even if you aren't sure that you have a case.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice may be the result of a wide variety of negligent situations or errors, including such frequent claims as:

  • Failure to diagnose conditions that would have improved with timely and correct treatment, including infections and cancers;
  • Misdiagnosis of cancers, strokes, heart attacks or other medical conditions;
  • Surgical, anesthesia, or other medical treatment errors;
  • Emergency Room Errors;
  • Prescriptions errors, either on the part of doctor or the pharmacist;
  • Mismanagement of diagnostic testing, such as the misreading blood tests, x-rays, CT-scans, or other test results;
  • Improper handling of patient records;
  • Negligence on the part of hospitals, physicians, clinics, nurses, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes;

Medical errors and negligent care can have devastating consequences for patients, including:

  • Wrongful Death from treatment error, misdiagnosis, or failure to diagnose;
  • Brain Injury or Damage, temporary or permanent;
  • Loss of a healthy limb;
  • Birth Injuries, including Cerebral Palsy and Erb's Palsy;
  • Spinal Cord Injuries & Paralysis;
  • Septic Infections;
  • Ongoing physical pain;

In addition to the serious physical effects of medical malpractice or negligence, the patient and his or her family often face drastic changes to their daily lives: loss of income; on-going medical expenses; the trauma of placing a loved one into a long-term nursing home; or even, most trajically, the wrongful death of a spouse, parent, or family member.

Examples of Dental Malpractice

Dental malpractice may occur when a dentist or other dental care provider fails to properly treat or diagnose an oral health condition, causing serious illness or even death. Negligent care or treatment also may include:

  • Failure or delay in diagnosing an oral disease, such as periodontal disease or mouth cancer;
  • Misdiagnosis of a disease;
  • Oral care procedural or surgical mistakes;
  • Anesthesiology errors;
  • Radiology mistakes.

In addition to the progression of oral cancer, other serious results of dental malpractice include:

  • Nerve damage, including facial nerve damage, numbness, and/or paralysis;
  • Loss of the wrong teeth;
  • Loss of bone support;
  • Septic infections requiring hospitalization;
  • Permanent jaw damage.

Like other medical malpractice cases, dental malpractice claims are often complex and require an experienced malpractice attorney to understand the facts of the injury and to make the necessary links between the negligent act and the actual injury or illness. If you believe that you are the victim of dental negligence or malpractice, call Adler & Adler, P.C. at 312-443-1488. We can help you determine if you have a viable dental malpractice claim.

What do I do if I think I am the victim of medical or dental malpractice?

First, if you are receiving on-going treatment, it is important to transfer to a new hospital, physician, or dentist to obtain the proper treatment. Do not accuse or insult the health care providers. Instead, document everything that has happened and request your medical records. Most importantly, consult a qualified medical malpractice lawyer, such as the attorneys at Adler & Adler, P.C. We are available 24-hours a day at (312) 443-1488. Do not hesitate to call, even if you aren't sure that you have a case.
