Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOMAccording to Illinois law, a simple mistake made by your hospital or healthcare provider does not necessarily mean they are at fault for medical malpractice. To qualify as medical malpractice, your doctor or facility had to make an “avoidable” mistake by failing to provide the customary standard of care that patients would receive from a prudent healthcare provider. Unfortunately, stress and fatigue created by the pressure to treat and bill as many patients as possible too often leads to carelessness that results in serious injury or death.

If you are not sure whether your injury was caused by medical negligence, a personal injury attorney at Thomas W. Lynch & Associates can meet with you for a free consultation to discuss the facts of your case. Some examples of cases that typically meet the criteria for medical malpractice involve:

  • Failure to diagnose
