Illinois

It is not easy to be a medical practitioner in the state of Illinois, especially in the city of Chicago, which is home to 65% of the state’s nearly 13 million inhabitants. Medical mistakes in such a heavily populated city can have a devastating impact on patients’ lives and can sometimes lead to their deaths. Illinois lawyers, who need to prove their clients’ cases, are confronted with many obstacles. JD.MD specializes in medical and dental malpractice expert witness services and comprehensive case evaluations that set the basis for obtaining the best compensation for your clients.

Medical Malpractice in Illinois

Just like other states, malpractice cases in Illinois revolve around negligence and substandard healthcare services. Although accidents do occur, their number is too small to be considered a serious cause of malpractice. It is not easy to have doctors testify against other doctors in a court of law. However, patients have the right to seek compensation for their losses, and their lawyers’ job is to employ the best malpractice experts in the field and win their cases, which is exactly the mission of JD.MD.

Health Care in Illinois

Illinois is the 5th most populous state in the United States, although it is not one of the largest in terms of area. The vast part of the population is concentrated in Chicago, which is famous for being a microcosm of the entire country's population, as well as a transportation hub. Nearly 13 million people live in the state of Illinois with the population increasing, slowly but surely, from census to census. Despite the fact that many physicians train in Illinois, the state is confronted with a low retention rate, as many doctors leave the state to practice elsewhere.

The high malpractice insurance rates, and complicated medical liability procedures, make Illinois unfriendly for physicians and dentists. Within this context, the number of malpractice cases is also high, and lawyers need medical malpractice expert witness services to help their clients seek justice and adequate compensation for their injuries, pain, and suffering.
