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 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 - This step is important in the case because it validates that you were indeed 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 no injury or harm occurred, you're case may not be legally viable.
  4. 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 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, 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? 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 deviation from the normal standard of care has to have caused further damages or injuries. 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.
