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:
- 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.
- The Doctor must have acted negligently in regards to your care - For the case to continue, the doctor must have acted negligently and made decisions or actions that another doctor would not have given the same circumstances.
- 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.
- 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, you will need to have a letter from another doctor or health professional of similar training. 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 has to be a deviation from the standard of care, and the deviation has to have caused harm to the patient. This change in medical procedure, lack of diagnoses, or botched surgery has to have caused further damages. 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.
