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 acts that the doctor, hospital, or health professional had to have made for it to be a legal medical malpractice case. Here are several examples:
- 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.
- 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 acted in ways that another doctor of similar training would not have.
- The Doctor's negligence has to have injured you - The doctor's negligent actions must then lead to you being injured or further injured due to their mistakes. If the doctor's negligence didn't harm you, you may not be able to pursue a case against them.
- The Doctor's negligence and your injury led to specific damages - You must have sustained damages relating to the actions of the doctor, hospital, or health professional. 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, 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 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.
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.
