Medical Malpractice Archives

Be aware of common medical malpractice incidents

Many people in the Chicago area of Illinois do not expect complications or errors when they undergo medical treatment, even those who know that medical malpractice is quite common in America. The fact is, most people probably think that the healthcare professionals they have chosen for their care are among the very best. While it is probably true, in general, that most healthcare professionals are highly-trained and qualified for their jobs, the rate of medical malpractice incidents in America is enough to have anyone on edge when it comes to medical treatment.

The basics of a medical malpractice claim

It is never a good thing when Illinois residents trust doctors and other healthcare professionals with medical treatment and care only to find out that a mistake has been made. Most people rightly believe that doctors and nurses are highly competent individuals who are among the very best at what they do. Sadly, the reality is that medical malpractice is more common than most people realize. That is why our readers should know the basics of a medical malpractice claim.

What is a failure to diagnose?

A failure to diagnose the results in the wrong treatment or no treatment at all can be harmful to a medical patient and may be considered medical malpractice. Legal protections through a medical malpractice claim for damages can help victims attempt to recover compensation for the harm they have suffered as a result of a failure to diagnose.

What is medical malpractice and how do I protect myself?

Having trust in your doctor is important which is why you may have questions if you have been the victim of medical malpractice. There are different ways in which a doctor of medical care professional may commit medical malpractice and one way is if they fail to diagnose a medical condition.

Why do people neglect to start medical malpractice claims?

People in Illinois do not always start medical malpractice claims when they should. In some cases, of course, this could be because they simply do not yet know that anything is wrong; they may think that excess pain they are feeling is just part of the normal recovery process and not because the doctor made a mistake. In cases where people do know that mistakes were made, though, why would they choose not to seek compensation?
