Proving Medical Malpractice in Illinois

TWL_2015_oct_MMLP_EP3Dissatisfaction with the quality of your health care will not always support a medical malpractice claim. To prove medical negligence in Illinois, you need to show that your doctor, nurse or health care facility deviated from the accepted “standard of care” during your treatment, and that the deviation caused serious injury or death.

Examples of avoidable medical mistakes that typically fall under the category of medical negligence include:

  • Surgical mistakes that cause you to be paralyzed or seriously impaired
  • Failing to inform you of the risks associated with surgery or medication
  • Failing to properly administer anesthesia
  • Operating or treating without your consent
  • Performing an unnecessary surgery
  • Failing to take precautions to avoid exposing you to deadly infections
  • Failing to diagnose your serious medical condition
  • Failing to perform necessary tests to detect your serious medical condition
  • Prescribing medication for which you have a known allergy

If any of these situations occurred as the result of your medical care, you owe it to yourself and your family to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Strict time limits apply when filing a medical malpractice claim. Any delay could result in the loss of your right to seek compensation.
