When Medical Professionals And Facilities Err

At Heller, Trakhtman & Associates, our lawyers have deep knowledge of not only the legal aspects of a successful medical malpractice claim, but also insight and experience with medical procedural rules and standards of care.

Our medical malpractice practice is led by attorney Steven Trakhtman, who is also an Illinois board-certified physician assistant. His training and experience as a medical professional provide invaluable insider knowledge and advantage to individuals who believe they have suffered harm due to the negligence of a doctor, anesthesiologist, nurse or hospital.

Medical Mistakes Are Common And Debilitating

Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients throughout the United States suffer acts of medical malpractice. A medical mistake can cause you to suffer painful and life-threatening injuries that can dramatically and adversely affect your health and ability to enjoy life.
