Medical Malpractice

Southern Illinois Medical Malpractice Attorney

Helping Those Injured in Illinois and Missouri

Many people injured by the negligent acts of a health care provider are reluctant to see a lawyer. Accusing a doctor or a hospital of malpractice can be difficult and traumatic. Most of our clients come to us because they want answers. They may know that something went terribly wrong during a medical procedure or hospital stay, but they cannot get the doctor, hospital or nursing home to tell them what happened.

Our attorneys have years of experience handling complex and emotionally sensitive cases. We offer free initial consultations to understand the specific details surrounding the case, so that we can best meet our clients' needs. To schedule yours, call 618-257-2222 or toll free 855-593-2984. You can also contact us online.

Protecting Victims of Medical Malpractice

At Weilmuenster & Keck, P.C., we work hard to get answers for victims of medical malpractice. The Southern Illinois medical malpractice lawyers at our firm carefully investigate allegations of medical negligence resulting in:

  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Hospital infections
  • Prescription errors
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Emergency room errors, including misdiagnosis of stroke or heart attack
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other conditions

When something goes wrong during a surgery or another medical procedure, doctors and hospitals often avoid the victim and his or her family, or hide behind their legal representation. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can get answers. We conduct thorough investigations and consult medical experts to develop a persuasive legal argument on your behalf.

Medical Negligence in Government Facilities

If you were injured in a hospital, clinic or rural health facility that is supported by the federal government, there is specialized law that covers your case. That law is called the Federal Tort Claims Act, and our attorneys are familiar with the rules and technical aspects of this law. We are ready to help you if your medical malpractice case involves a government-run facility.

Personal Attention. Exceptional Results.

We invest substantial money and resources in every medical malpractice case we handle, and we will not spend the time and money necessary to bring a case we feel is frivolous. Furthermore, we only take cases involving significant injuries or wrongful death.

Due to our success and reputation for aggressive representation, hospitals and doctors often retain us to oversee their insurance companies' lawyers in medical malpractice defense cases.
