What is medical malpractice?

Medical Malpractice can happen when a doctor, healthcare professional, hospital, or other health service center acts in a negligent way or neglects to provide a standard of reasonable care, and this action leads to the patient being injured. This can happen in the form of errors in diagnoses, missed diagnosis, error in treatments, errors in after care or errors in health management.

You think that a doctor committed medical malpractice in your care. What now?

Here is a quick video explaining whether or not you have a medical malpractice case:

For your case to constitute medical malpractice there are several factors or acts that must have occurred for the case to be a legal medical malpractice case. Here are several examples:

  1. A Doctor-Patient relationship has to be established - The only way you can bring a case against a doctor or health professional is if you were actually a patient under their care.
  2. The Doctor must have acted negligently in regards to your care - For a medical malpractice case to be possible, the doctor must have acted negligently and made errors in your care that another doctor would not have.
  3. The Doctor's negligence has to have injured you - The doctor's actions must lead to you being further injured. If the doctors negligence didn't cause you any injuries, you're case will be difficult to win.
  4. The Doctor's negligence and your injury led to specific damages - You must have sustained damages relating to the actions of the doctor, hospital, or health professional. If you can verify that your damages do indeed stem from the negligent actions of the doctor or hospital, your case has legal bearing and can continue.

I've proven that my doctor has committed Medical Malpractice against me. What now?

With Medical Malpractice proven, you now need to file a Medical Malpractice Claim.

Here is a quick video detailing how to file a medical malpractice claim:

Filing a medical malpractice claim is similar to filing a personal injury claim. In both Illinois and Missouri, you will need to have a letter from another doctor or health professional of similar training. This letter needs to state that party that provided medical care did so negligently or carelessly, and that another doctor with similar training would not have made the same mistake. So what does this mean? The damage or injury must have arisen from a deviation in the standard of care, and this change has to be the deciding factor in the caused harm to the patient. This change in medical procedure, lack of diagnoses, or botched surgery has to have caused further damages. If no damages resulted from the deviation, there is not a strong case for medical malpractice.

When you're ready to pursue the case legally, you have to file a letter and name the hospital, doctor, or health professional, and you have to include another letter from another doctor stating that the doctor who saw to your care acted negligently and their actions caused the harm you are now suffering from. From this point, a medical malpractice case can proceed.
