Legal Advocacy When You Need It Most


Compassionate Support After A Medical Malpractice Incident

At Montgomery Law Firm LLC, attorney James D. Montgomery Jr. recognizes that injuries sustained from medical malpractice can have significant emotional and financial consequences. As such, he ensures that as a victim of medical malpractice, you will receive comprehensive legal guidance as he endeavors to make the process run as smoothly as possible.

Legal Support For A Wide Range Of Medical Malpractice Cases

Attorney Montgomery has assisted numerous Chicago residents with their medical malpractice cases. He can provide legal counsel and representation for the following medical mishaps:

  • Anesthesia errors: These errors can occur when anesthesia is administered incorrectly, resulting in complications such as brain damage, nerve damage or even death.
  • Angiogram errors: An angiogram is a diagnostic procedure to visualize blood vessels and detect blockages or abnormalities. Errors during this procedure can lead to complications such as bleeding, blood clots or damage to blood vessels, potentially causing stroke, heart attack, or other serious injuries.
  • Birth injuries to the baby or mother: These injuries can occur due to medical negligence during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Examples include failure to monitor fetal distress, improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors, delayed cesarean section, or failure to diagnose and treat maternal conditions that can harm the baby or mother.
  • Delayed diagnoses: When a medical condition is not diagnosed in a timely manner, it can worsen, making it more difficult to treat and potentially causing further harm to the patient. Delayed diagnoses of conditions such as cancer, heart disease or infections can have severe consequences.
  • Drug errors: These errors can involve prescribing the wrong medication, incorrect dosages, or failing to account for potential drug interactions or allergies. Drug errors can lead to adverse reactions, toxicity or ineffective treatment, potentially causing harm to the patient.
  • Incorrect diagnoses: Misdiagnosing a patient’s condition can result in inappropriate treatment or a delay in receiving the proper treatment, potentially leading to further complications or a worsening of the patient’s condition.
  • Radiology errors: Errors in interpreting diagnostic imaging tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs, can lead to missed diagnoses or incorrect diagnoses, resulting in delayed or improper treatment.
  • Surgical errors: These can occur during surgical procedures and include operating on the wrong body part or leaving surgical instruments or materials inside the patient.

Medical malpractice cases tend to be more complex than typical personal injury cases. Attorney Montgomery has the knowledge and resources to build a strong case for compensation.

Driven To Secure The Results You Need

Mr. Montgomery is driven to make a genuine difference for those who have been injured by the negligent actions of medical professionals. You should be able to trust your medical provider and that their actions are made in your best interests. If they fail to follow the basic standards of care, he will help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Although Mr. Montgomery’s main aim is to secure appropriate compensation, he also strives to obtain a proper explanation as to what occurred and ultimately hold the doctor or hospital accountable for their actions. He can also help you answer important questions you may have about your case, such as:

Can You File A Malpractice Action Right Away?

Before you file a malpractice action against a doctor, state law requires you to gather a second opinion from another doctor. To help strengthen your claim, you should get a second opinion from a doctor who is more specialized than the first doctor when pursuing their expert opinion.

Should You Journal About Your Experience?

Keeping a journal surrounding your medical experience is one of the best ways to help your lawyer through your malpractice claim. Keep track of vital information such as what you saw, when you may have noticed things and other important details surrounding the malpractice. Keeping track of this information can help ensure you have the information you need when you need it.
