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:

  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 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 negligent actions must then lead to you being injured or further injured due to their mistakes. 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 - You must have sustained damages relating to the actions of the doctor, hospital, or health professional. 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 another doctor with similar training would not have made the same mistake. 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 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 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.
