What is medical malpractice?
Medical Malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other medical professional acts negligently and fails to provide a standard of reasonable care, and the patient is then subsequently harmed by this negligent act. 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 a few different acts that must have taken place for the case to qualify as legal medical malpractice case. Here are several examples:
- A Doctor-Patient relationship has to be established - For you to pursue a claim against a doctor, hospital, or health facility, you must first be able to prove that you were a patient under their care.
- The Doctor must have acted negligently in regards to your care - For the case to continue, the doctor must have acted negligently and made decisions or actions that another doctor would not have given the same circumstances.
- 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.
- The Doctor's negligence and your injury led to specific damages - For the case to be legally viable, you must have sustained damages directly relating to the doctors actions. If you can prove that your damages directly result from the doctor's or hospitals actions, your case can proceed.

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? There has to be a deviation from the standard of care, and the deviation has to have caused harm to the patient. The deviation from the standard of care must be responsible for any further damages other than the original injury you saw the health professional for. 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.
