Study shows patient danger from surgical error

Patients in Illinois and their families are aware of the dangers of any kind of surgical procedure. Even the most common and seemingly routine operations can have inherent risks. One that people don't often consider is that a negligent surgeon may commit medical malpractice and cause injury or death to the patient. It is important to be aware of certain mistakes that doctors and their staffs are prone to make.

Federal rules for litigation of nursing home abuse could change

Many Illinois residents have had to make the difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home. Making the decision is difficult in almost any case, but it isn't helped by the frequency of media stories regarding nursing home abuse, nursing home neglect and death.

Study points out incidents of a fatal failure to diagnose

When a person in Illinois goes to the doctor for a diagnosis of an issue or for treatment, there's an expectation that the doctor will make the correct assessment and provide a treatment option for the particular problem. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. Recent information indicates that the majority of people will receive an incorrect or delayed diagnosis at some point. Some of these incidents will result in severe injury or death.

Pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit after a work-related fatality

Nothing can prepare a family in Illinois for the loss of a loved one in an accident at work. Although there are many jobs that are considered dangerous, some are more risky than others. An example of work that is known to frequently lead to the death of a worker in the course of employment is construction work. Regardless of the type of work a person does, accidents are often unavoidable. In the worst case scenario, it leads to death. Families left without a breadwinner might not realize what to do in the aftermath of a wrongful death.
