Chicago Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Unlike other personal injury claims, most medical malpractice cases do proceed to trial. These are the most expensive, complex cases to handle.

Our trial lawyers understand that getting maximum compensation for medical malpractice victims requires us to take the battle into the courtroom. From our years of practice in personal injury and medical malpractice law we know where to find the medical experts needed to prove medical negligence, securing them from teaching hospitals throughout the United States.

Taking Medical Malpractice Cases to Trial to Maximize Compensation

Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman 

For more than 40 years, we've been fighting to get results for the victims of doctor negligence, hospital malpractice and nursing home negligence. You can be confident that we will strive to provide positive results for you.

The Challenge: Getting a Certificate of Merit and the Necessary Expert Witnesses

The first step in bringing any medical malpractice claim to court is obtaining a certificate of merit. A certificate of merit is a document from an expert in the medical field that the claim pertains to. This expert must certify that there is merit to the claim, that the medical professional being blamed for harming the victim actually failed to adhere to the standards of care required to keep patients safe.

Our Chicago medical malpractice lawyers work with a network of experts to ensure that we are able to get a certificate of merit in a timely manner so we can move forward with filing the medical malpractice claim.
