Seeing a doctor for an ailment, simple procedure or an injury should be a touch and go affair. After all, these are highly trained professionals who’ve carried out countless procedures in the past. However, what happens when a simple doctor’s visit goes awry, leaving you with catastrophic injuries?

Medical malpractice is on the rise in Illinois, and a lot of victims don’t even know that they have rights to seek legal redress. Doctors are supposed to exercise reasonable care and do their due diligence administering care, failure to which they can be held accountable for your injuries. In addition, some of these injuries can go undiscovered for weeks, months, or sometimes, years. However much time it took for you to discover a doctor’s error, it’s important to seek legal help as soon as possible so you can get the needed compensation to reverse the error in a timely manner.

A patient goes in to see a doctor about a suspicious looking bump. The doctor makes a misdiagnosis due to them not paying good attention, and the patient ends up with cancer that spreads to other organs, leading to extensive surgery and chemotherapy.

A patient is taken in for surgery. The doctor rushes to finish the operation, and fails to stitch up the patient in a proper manner, which leads to infection days later.

An expectant mother comes in to deliver her baby. The nurses and doctor fail to monitor both the mother’s and baby’s vital signs, resulting in the baby being born with cerebral palsy.

A patient asks for a cosmetic surgery procedure. The doctor obliges, but doesn’t fully explain the risks of such as procedure to the patient. The surgery is a success, but the patient develops a blood clot a week later which travels to their lung, killing them.

Medical malpractice cases can be complicated, and can involve multiple defendants. This is one of the reasons why you should hire an experienced Illinois medical malpractice lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the law as well as someone who can go up against aggressive insurance company representatives and hospital attorneys.
