Medical Malpractice Lawsuits: Holding Negligent Doctors Responsible
Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered, is one of the most active and experienced medical malpractice law firms in Illinois outside of Cook County. When doctors and other medical professionals fail to perform according to accepted standards, it can be difficult to bring the responsible person to justice. It requires significant financial resources to pursue a fair resolution in medical malpractice lawsuits, to hire ethical medical experts to break the health care and pharmaceutical industries code of silence. We are proud to have recovered multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of families who have suffered as the result of medical negligence.
Representing Personal Injury Plaintiffs Throughout Illinois
Without competent legal counsel, accident victims risk accepting financial settlements that come nowhere close to full compensation for the complete cost — both present and future — of the accident. The attorneys in our personal injury practice have 120 years of combined experience handling complex accident cases. We negotiate with insurance companies and take cases to trial whenever necessary to pursue a secure financial future for our clients.
Using Our Trial Skills on Behalf of Business Owners
In our business litigation practice, we counsel Illinois business owners embroiled in legal conflicts. In every commercial litigation matter we handle, we provide all information necessary for the business owner to choose a course of action that makes economic sense in both the immediate and long-term future.
Upholding Professional Standards in Professional Malpractice Cases
The majority of professional malpractice cases we handle at Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered, involve instances of attorney malpractice. However, we also represent individuals who have been damaged by negligence on the part of other professionals such as accountants, architects and real estate agents. Professionals often have explanations for their failure to act according to professional standards, but these explanations are not an excuse for acting in ways that harm their clients.
