Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider does not comply with the applicable standard of care in a given medical field. For example, medical negligence can arise due to misdiagnosis, failure to provide appropriate medical treatment, or as a result of a delay in treatment that should have been given. Medical malpractice may occur if a patient is not carefully monitored during surgery, when a necessary test is not undertaken, or when medicine is improperly prescribed or improperly administered. How do judges and juries determine what is the applicable “standard of care” owed by a physician or hospital? The answer often depends on where the treatment took place and the operative discipline of medicine.

The process of resolving medical malpractice cases is complicated. Illinois law requires that before a lawsuit can be filed, the case must be reviewed by a consulting physician, and the physician must agree that there is evidence supporting a lawsuit sounding in malpractice or “negligence.” If you feel that you or a family member has suffered an illness or injury due to negligence, it is important to consult with a skilled attorney.
