What is Considered to be Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a healthcare professional in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient. In most medical malpractice cases, this will involve some type of medical error.

There are many different types of medical malpractice, but some of the more common include when a medical professional or doctor makes:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis

  • Failure to obtain informed consent

  • Surgical error

  • Birth injuries

  • Anesthesia errors

  • Prescription drug and medication errors

Examples of Valid Medical Malpractice Claims

An example of a valid medical malpractice claim could be if a patient is misdiagnosed with a less serious condition than they actually have. If the delay in diagnosis results in the patient’s condition worsening with devastating consequences to their health and livelihood, they may have a valid medical malpractice lawsuit.

Another example could be if a surgeon operates on the wrong body part or leaves a foreign object inside the patient. These are both clear examples of surgical errors that could result in a valid medical malpractice lawsuit.

If you believe you or a loved one may have a claim for medical malpractice, contact The Kryder Law Group, LLC today for a free consultation with one of our medical malpractice attorneys.

What is the Statute of Limitations on Medical Malpractice Claims in Illinois?

Under Illinois law, 735 ILCS §5/13-212(a), the statute of limitations for medical malpractice lawsuits is two years from the date of the injury or four years from the date of discovery of the injury, whichever is earlier.

This means that if you or a loved one has been injured due to medical malpractice, you have a time limit on how long you have to file a claim. Contact The Kryder Law Group, LLC today for a free consultation to ensure that your claim is filed within the statute of limitations.

What Are My Chances of Winning a Medical Malpractice Claim?

The success of any medical malpractice case depends on the specific facts and circumstances of each case. In order to win a medical malpractice claim, you must be able to prove that the health care provider breached the standard of care and that their negligence resulted in your injuries.

You also must be able to prove that your injuries resulted in damages. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer will be able to review your case and medical records and advise you of your chances of success.

How Long will It Take?

The length of time it will take to resolve your personal injury claim depends on the details of your case. If you are able to settle your claim out of court, it may be resolved relatively quickly. However, if your case goes to trial, it could take several years to reach a resolution.

Examples of Injuries that Are Not Considered Medical Malpractice

Not every injury that occurs during treatment can be considered medical malpractice. In order for an injury to be considered medical malpractice, it must have been caused by a health care provider’s negligence.

Some examples of injuries that are not considered medical malpractice may include complications that are a known risk of the treatment, a negative outcome in treatment where appropriate standards of care were provided, or injuries that occur after the patient has been discharged from the care of the health care provider.
