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 - This is the first step in a medical malpractice case and you have to be able to prove that you were a patient under their care.
  2. The Doctor must have acted negligently in regards to your care - For the case to continue, 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 negligence, whether it was a missed diagnosis or a botched surgery must lead directly to your injury or 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 - For any type of personal injury claim to work, you must have been damaged in some way, whether it is medically or financially. 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, before a case can be filed against a doctor or hospital a letter from another doctor is needed. This letter needs to state that party that provided medical care did so negligently or carelessly, and that the medical choice or mistake the doctor made would not have been made by another doctor with similar experience and training. 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. 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 it’s time to file the lawsuit, you have to name the doctor, hospital or practician in the lawsuit, and you will also need a certificate or a letter signed by another doctor that there was negligence involved in the care you received, and that the negligence caused you harm. From this point, a medical malpractice case can proceed.
