Representing Illinois Victims of Nursing Negligence in Medical Malpractice Claims

We have obtained numerous substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients, including $7.650 million in a birth injury case involving cerebral palsy caused by an obstetrical nurse’s failure to properly read fetal heart monitor strips and $2.4 million for the surviving husband of a woman who died as a result of a nurse’s failure to properly monitor a patient’s electrolyte levels.

Contact our office at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our Chicago nursing negligence attorneys to discuss a possible legal claim for medical malpractice.

Examples of Nursing Negligence

Nursing malpractice may include:

  • Administering the wrong drug
  • Failing to communicate with doctors and other medical staff
  • Failing to act or seek additional medical assistance when necessary
  • Failing to monitor the patient
  • Injuring patient with equipment
  • Improperly administering medication

Liability for Nursing Negligence

Liability is a key issue in any nursing malpractice case. Hospitals are often named as defendants in nursing malpractice cases, because most nurses are employees of a hospital. In some cases the attending doctor may be liable. If an attending doctor is responsible for supervising the nurse, he or she may be liable for the nursing malpractice.
