Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

At Thomas W. Lynch & Associates, P.C., we frequently receive calls from patients or family members who are upset with the quality of care provided by their doctor, nurse or health care facility. The primary question they want answered is, “Do I have a medical malpractice claim?”

In the state of Illinois, the law clearly defines medical malpractice. If your doctor, nurse or health care facility makes an avoidable mistake–due to carelessness, fatigue or stress–and by deviating from the standard of acceptable care in their community causes serious injury or death to you or a family member, the law entitles you to pursue a medical malpractice claim.

Specific examples of common avoidable errors that could constitute medical negligence include:

  • Making a surgical error that results in paralysis or another injury
  • Administering anesthesia improperly
  • Operating or treating a patient without informed consent
  • Operating when it is not necessary
  • Failure to explain the risks of surgery or medications
  • Failure to order tests that could detect a medical condition
  • Failure to diagnose a serious health condition
  • Prescribing or giving medication to a patient with a known allergy
  • Prescribing or giving a patient the wrong medication
  • Failure to take precautions to protect patients from deadly infections
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner
  • Oversight during delivery that results in harm to the baby

If you have suffered serious injury or if a loved one died because of medical negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Call (708) 598-5999 today to speak with Thomas W. Lynch & Associates, P.C. about your case or complete our online form to have someone contact you.

What Compensation Are You Entitled to Receive?

Health is priceless. If you have been seriously injured, or if you have lost a loved one due to medical negligence, no amount of compensation can restore your health or bring your family member back. One goal of compensation for medical malpractice is to help you pay for the expenses you incur as a result of someone else’s negligence. Common expenses include:

  • Loss of wages and salary
  • Past and future medication expenses and medical bills
  • Wheelchairs and other medical equipment
  • Household modifications that accommodate your disability
  • An accessible vehicle to accommodate your disability
  • Home-based nursing care
  • Pain management therapy
  • Special education for a brain-damaged child
  • Other costs or expenses to help you live a normal life

Another goal of compensation is to help you regain some of the enjoyment of life that you lost due to pain and suffering. Money does not buy happiness but it can be used in ways that make your life more pleasant.
