What Types of Mistakes Constitute Medical Malpractice?

Doctors and nurses are human like the rest of us. They make mistakes. A simple mistake does not automatically qualify as medical malpractice. In the State of Illinois, the law defines medical malpractice as an avoidable mistake that deviates from the standard of care practiced by other members of the medical community and that causes serious injury or death.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of one of the following serious, avoidable medical mistakes you may be entitled to compensation:

  • Surgical errors that result in paralysis or other injuries
  • Failure to get informed consent from a patient before surgery or treatment
  • Failure to explain the risks associated with surgery or medication
  • Performing unnecessary surgery
  • Failing to monitor anesthesia
  • Not taking precautions to avoid exposing patients to deadly infections
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other serious medical conditions
  • Failure to order tests needed to detect a serious medical condition
  • Prescribing a medication that causes an allergic reaction
  • Prescribing the wrong medication to a patient
  • Waiting too long to perform a cesarean section

Medical malpractice claims may be filed against a variety of health care providers, including:

  • Surgeons
  • Hospitals
  • Physicians
  • Chiropractors
  • Dentists
  • Health care technicians and other workers

Strict time limits apply to making a medical malpractice claim. You should contact a lawyer as soon as you suspect that an injury, severe pain, or death resulted from a health care provider’s mistake. Delay may cause you to lose your right to seek compensation.
