Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Kane County
Medical malpractice is when a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider acts below the standard of care required in their profession and causes you harm. Kane County medical malpractice lawsuits are filed at the Kane County Courthouse in Geneva, located at 100 S. Third Street.
If you are the victim of malpractice in Kane County, then you will likely file a lawsuit here if you choose to take legal action. An attorney can help you make that decision, which is not as simple as filing the paperwork. Medical malpractice lawsuits are expensive and time intensive. So the decision whether to pursue a lawsuit depends on whether the amount you can recover is more than the costs of the lawsuit. This basically limits “good” cases to those with serious or lasting injuries.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are not only expensive, but they can be difficult to win. Juries tend to favor the defendant in these cases, especially in more conservative counties like Kane. In order to give yourself the best chance of success, we recommend choosing your attorney carefully and go with someone who has an established track record of success. That is often the difference between winning and losing.
One of the main considerations in hiring a medical malpractice attorney is resources. As we mentioned, these cases are expensive. The costs, which include paying experts, should be paid by your attorney or firm. Attorneys by law in Illinois medical malpractice lawsuits must charge a contingency fee. This means that they will receive a portion of what you recover at trial or in settlement. If you lose, there is no fee. If your attorney does not have the resources to pay all costs upfront, you may not have the right type of firm.
Other important factors when looking for the right medical malpractice attorney is experience. Your best bet, in our opinion, is to go with someone who focuses on medical malpractice and has done so for many years. They should also have a good reputation in the legal community.
