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 - 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.
  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 negligence, whether it was a missed diagnosis or a botched surgery must lead directly to your injury or being further injured. If the doctors actions didn't lead to any further damages, your case will be harder to argue in court.
  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 the doctor's negligence led to a specific injury that you are suffering from 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 you can pursue the case from a legal point of view, you will have to have another doctor or health professional write a letter. 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? There needs to be a deviation or change from the normal standard of care, and this change has to have caused harm to the patient. The deviation from the standard of care, the negligence of the doctor has to have caused further damages than the original ailment. If no damages resulted from the deviation, there is not a strong case for medical malpractice.

Having another doctor state that the doctor who you trusted acted negligently and that their negligence caused you harm is vital to the case. From this point, a medical malpractice case can proceed.
