Negligence is a legal concept on which many personal injury claims are based. This Chicago personal injury law blog has discussed negligence in the context of car accidents, construction accidents, and nursing home accidents. Negligence can also form the basis of a medical malpractice claim.
Medical negligence can happen in many ways, and its presence is often dependent upon the facts of a particular individual's case. Because medical negligence can look very different in varying contexts, it is important for people with possible negligence-based claims to evaluate their situation and determine if it is appropriate for litigation. Attorneys at the law firm of Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish are prepared to assist individuals engaging in this type of evaluation and to help them determine if they have strong claims for damages based on medical negligence.
Medical negligence can occur when doctors and other workers in the medical field make mistakes regarding a patient's treatment and care.

Injuries resulting from medical negligence can be significant even if they are not fatal and can require affected individuals to seek continuing medical treatment.
