What Counts as Medical Malpractice?
Several actions can constitute an act of medical malpractice. Our team considers the actions of individual healthcare workers when looking at a case, but we do not stop there. We also examine the potential role of a healthcare organization when assessing your damages.
Some common forms of medical malpractice include the following:
- Failure to properly diagnose
- Failure to maintain safe working conditions
- Failure to properly disinfect and sanitize surfaces and equipment
- Failure to operate medical devices and equipment
- Employee impairment and intoxication
- Prescription errors
- Failure to treat a symptom or condition
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors and mistakes
Assessing the Relevance of State Laws and Statutes
Several state laws can impact the outcome of your medical malpractice case in Illinois. For example, the medical malpractice statute of limitations in Illinois outlined in 735 ILCS 5/13-202 shows that victims who suffer from medical malpractice have a limited time within which they are allowed to take legal action. If you fail to move forward with your case within this time frame, the court will throw out your case.
Our team of lawyers will take these kinds of state and local laws into consideration when working on your case. We have experience in navigating statutes and laws that pertain to medical malpractice cases. If you have any questions about how such local laws may impact you, our team is here to answer them for you as your case progresses.
How Should You Proceed After Experiencing Medical Malpractice?
A study published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) showed that medical errors are estimated to be the third-leading cause of death in the United States. To add to this, acts of medical malpractice are also responsible for many personal injuries. If you suffered harm due to a medical error, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
After getting help to begin your recovery, securing legal help can help you to exercise your rights as a victim. Our lawyers understand the difficulties of moving on after suffering an act of medical malpractice.
