Determining Whether You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim

In Illinois, the law deems it medical malpractice when a health care professional or facility deviates from the standard of acceptable care in their community when treating a patient and causes serious injury or death. Although everyone makes mistakes, the law holds health care professionals accountable for avoidable mistakes caused by carelessness, stress, fatigue, or neglect. Common mistakes that may constitute medical malpractice include:

  • 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 a surgery or medication
  • Performing unnecessary surgery
  • Errors when administering anesthesia
  • Misreading an x-ray
  • 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 to which a patient is allergic
  • Prescribing the wrong medication to a patient
  • Waiting too long to perform a cesarean section
