Medical Malpractice

We put our health in the hands of trained professionals we trust, and most of the time, they honor that trust. But occasionally, medical professionals fail to live up to their own professional standards, and serious injuries and wrongful deaths result. A medical professional that makes an error should be held accountable for actions that do not meet an acceptable level of care.

Among the most complex of all personal injury and wrongful death cases, medical malpractice – missed diagnoses to surgical errors – result in devastating injuries, including birth defects, brain damage and death.

As a former medical malpractice defense lawyer with a major Fortune 100 law firm, James P. LeFante has perhaps more experience with both sides of medical malpractice than any other attorney in the central Illinois region. He knows how the other side thinks and strategizes, and his record of success – substantial awards totaling many millions of dollars – is proof of his expertise and competency.

Categories of Medical and Surgical Errors

  • Prescription drug errors: prescribing or administering the wrong medication or incorrect dosage, harmful drug interactions and manufacturing defects.
  • Birth injuries and obstetric malpractice: including cerebral palsy, brachial plexus (Erb’s palsy), fractures, brain damage and death of the mother or child.
  • Surgical and anesthesia errors: including surgery on the wrong body part, operating on the wrong patient, unsanitary procedures and damage to adjacent organs by the scalpel.
  • Failure to diagnose and wrong diagnoses: including misidentification of cancer, heart failure and misreading of lab results.

Medical malpractice cases are won through the extensive analysis of medical professionals. Reconstructing the details of your procedure, treatment or intervention is crucial, but complex. At LeFante Law Offices, P.C., we understand these complexities and the great level of detail required to prove errors.

I learned really quick that traffic court can turn into a nightmare really fast. I have never had to hire an attorney until recently and didn’t know where to begin.

Highly Recommend!

I highly recommend Mr. James LeFante, because he will work for you.  He is not a quick-fix attorney who works to fill his pocket.  He took my case 30 days before my Statute of Limitations was up, and he never gave up. He got my medical liens lowered and paid, and I received an unexpected… Read more “Highly Recommend!”
