Medical Malpractice

Seeking Justice for Medical Malpractice Victims in Chicago

Medical professionals have a responsibility to their patients. When doctors, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes, therapists or pharmacists fail in their duty to patients, medical malpractice lawsuits offer an opportunity to hold them accountable for their actions or negligence.

At the Chicago office of Thomas M. Paris, Attorney and Counselor at Law, we have nearly two decades of courtroom experience. When you have suffered because of medical malpractice, we will thoroughly assess your case and guide you through the litigation process.

Call 312-759-1600 or contact us online to discuss your concerns with a highly experienced Illinois attorney.

Medical Malpractice Involves Intense Litigation

Fundamentally, pursuing medical malpractice claims is similar to other forms of complex litigation; however, they often require more resources and time due to the nature of the disputes. Most medical malpractice cases do not settle. We have the experience and dedication needed to see you through the intense litigation that comes with medical malpractice cases.

  • We will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case. Having worked with medical professionals for more than 17 years, we will go through your medical records and consult with an experienced doctor to determine if your case has merit.
  • We will work with experts. In order to prove medical malpractice, we work closely with experts and consultants. We have used nurses, doctors, therapists and other professionals, local and around the country, who provide expert testimony for our clients.
  • We will guide you through the litigation process. We know that litigation can be intimidating for someone who has never been involved in a trial. We will make sure that you always know what to expect and guide you through every step of your case.

Medical malpractice cases are highly detailed and complex. When medical errors lead to serious complications or wrongful death, it is critical that you turn to an experienced lawyer.

The Illinois Supreme Court has again decided that caps on damages are unconstitutional. Before and since the legislation was enacted much has been written about the "crisis", some of which has been a complete fabrication. The Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, of which I am a member, has produced an excellent paper examining some of the lies, exaggerations and myths about the medical malpractice "crisis". While few Drs will acknowledge it they have ITLA's efforts to thank for the reduced premiums they are now paying. Those reductions have nothing to do with damage caps, which few if any lawyers (including defense lawyers) thought would survive constitutional scrutiny. Rather, the reductions have everything to do with ITLA and the state's forcing the the Dr's own insurance company to open its books. Now that they are open other insurance companies are writing business in IL and the law of supply and demand has caused premiums to come down -- which is good news for doctors and the patients they serve.
