Health law is a broad description of a variety of civil and administrative laws, regulations, and legal proceedings involving the healthcare industry and its professionals. From healthcare organizations in need of contract negotiation to auditing policies and procedures to lawsuits involving healthcare practitioners and patients, there are many legal issues that require an experienced health law attorney.
During the course of medical treatment and aftercare, complications can arise. When a patient is injured or receives a wrongful diagnosis or service, a medical malpractice claim can be submitted to the insurance carrier for the healthcare professional. Medical mistakes can occur and injuries can result from a variety of factors. In the healthcare industry, our law firm represents individuals as well as doctors, dentists, and other medical professionals with medical malpractice matters requiring experienced legal representation.
Individuals and families involved in personal injury or wrongful death accidents are more likely to win when they are represented by a team of lawyers and investigators who know how to successfully litigate personal injury cases. When insurance companies do not offer enough money to pay for past, present, and future medical bills, and expenses, and compensate for pain and suffering, you need an aggressive legal team.
The issues that can arise with the issuance, renewal, or maintenance of a professional license can be complicated and it is important to have legal advice and representation when complications arise. For example, a nurse or healthcare professional licensed in another state could have a problem in Illinois with a new or renewed license.
Professionals in Illinois are regulated by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). The Department is responsible for making sure that all licensed professionals maintain the standards required for licensing in various professions like healthcare. If the IDFPR investigates and contacts a licensee about potential discipline, it is imperative to use an experienced professional regulation attorney to keep your professional record clean and protect your license.
When you get sick or injured at work you might need to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. The process of filing a claim and answering the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission can be a challenge for anyone who does not work with them on a regular basis. During the process of a benefit claim, an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer is your best asset to make sure you get the help you need after being sick or injured at work.
