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:

  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 the case to proceed further, the doctor must have acted negligently and made decisions or actions that another doctor would not have given the same circumstances.
  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 - 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 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, that another doctor, with training or experience similar to the operating doctor, would not have made the same medical choices or errors. 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 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.
