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.
