A standard of care refers to a generally accepted set of practices that peer providers would offer to a similarly-situated patient. Any deviations from this standard are considered medical malpractice in Chicago.
If you or a family member experienced inadequate medical care that resulted in injuries, speaking with a Chicago medical malpractice lawyer will provide insight and straightforward counsel regarding your next steps for redress in court.
