Doctors’ neglect can financially devastate their patients – and can even cost them their lives. In the United States, over 100,000 patients suffer annually as a result of medical errors. Hundreds of thousands more suffer serious injury or long-term illness due to the negligence of a doctor, nurse, or hospital. These medical errors cost between $37 and $50 billion per year. More often than not, patients and their insurance providers foot the bill. It doesn’t have to be this way! Carter Law offers the services of professional medical malpractice attorneys in Decatur, IL. We will fight for your rights!

- Misdiagnosis – Misdiagnosis of cancer, stroke, or heart attack increasingly occur throughout the country.
- Medication Errors – The wrong prescription medication may lead to overdose, cause harmful drug interactions, or negatively interact with a patient’s preexisting condition.
