Third-Party Claims of Medical Malpractice

Chicago Workplace Accident and Injury Lawyers

Workplace accidents and injuries often involve medical treatment. Doctors, nurses, and hospitals are relied upon by employees and employers to help the injured employee recover. Unfortunately, in some cases, a medical provider will exacerbate a workplace injury. When this happens, the negligent doctor, hospital or health care provider may be found liable for medical malpractice in a third-party case.

At Donald W. Fohrman & Associates, Ltd., our skilled Chicago accident and injury attorneys have considerable experience with both workplace accidents and medical malpractice. We can help you obtain maximum recovery following a workplace accident by obtaining worker’s compensation benefits and compensation through any appropriate third-party claims against a negligent doctor or negligent motorist, depending on the circumstances of the workplace accident.

If your workplace injuries were exacerbated as a result of medical malpractice, contact our office at (800) 437-2571 to schedule a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable Chicago work-related accident attorneys.

  • Emergency Room Errors
