How Will the Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorneys at Mancini Law Group P.C. Prove My Case?
Medical malpractice cases require that many standards of the law are met before we can proceed with a claim on our client’s behalf.
The initial requirement is to prove there was a breach of the standard of care by the medical professional by presenting an Affidavit of Merit with our claim.
All Illinois medical malpractice claims require the Affidavit of Merit to be completed by a knowledgeable medical professional who currently teaches or practices in the same area of medicine that is relevant to our case.
Simply put, if you were injured during vascular surgery, our Chicago medical professional must also have credentials, experience, and competence in that field. Then they must complete the affidavit by stating there is reasonable merit that medical malpractice occurred because the other healthcare provider did not practice the applicable standard of care owed to the patient.
After we have established that a negligent healthcare provider’s breach of care was the proximate cause of your injuries, we must prove damages resulted, which will be proven by the injuries you suffered.
Our dedicated medical malpractice attorneys in Chicago will aggressively pursue your claim because your need for justice is our passion for justice.
