Medical negligence can include misidentifying patients

One of the most important aspects of receiving the proper care at a hospital in Illinois and across the country should be the simplest: accurate patient identification. However, the failure to have the right information on a particular patient is an issue that happens all too often. Those who believe that an injury was suffered or a family member died because of this particularly egregious incident of medical negligence need to understand the statistics as to its frequency and consider a legal filing to be compensated after the fact.

Fatal car accident with motorcycle kills off-duty cop

It is unfortunate that accidents between an automobile and a motorcycle can result in a fatality. Motorcyclists are vulnerable when riding because of the lack of protection they are accorded, even if they are wearing a helmet and adhering to all the applicable laws. An automobile accident involving a motorcyclist is not limited to motorcyclists who are riding for fun. They can involve motorcyclists who work in jobs in which they help and protect people, such as those in law enforcement. Regardless, when there is a crash involving a motorcycle and it results in a fatality, the family that has suffered the loss of a loved one needs to bear the future in mind when considering a legal filing.

Multi-million dollar birth injury lawsuit speaks to larger issues

New mothers and fathers choose to file birth injury lawsuits for numerous reasons. Certainly, one common reason is ensuring that an injured mother or her injured child receives enough compensation to cover his or her necessary medical care in the short-term and long-term.

Notably egregious errors made against surgical patients

A patient in Illinois who goes to receive treatment from a medical professional might have it in the back of his or her mind that a mistake is possible and that can turn into a fatal mistake. The statistics are such that these types of errors are thankfully rare. Unfortunately, thought, they do happen and a patient can be damaged severely or die as a result of it.

Drag race believed to have caused fatal car accident

Even drivers in Cook County who are completely vigilant, practice appropriate safety precautions and adhere to all traffic signs can be involved in a crash. These can occur for a variety of reasons, but one of the most prominent is the recklessness of another driver. In the worst case scenario, an automobile accident can result in a fatality. The family left behind will want answers after such an incident has occurred, and it is imperative to keep in mind that an investigation will focus on the case in an evenhanded way.

Attempts made to reduce medical malpractice cases with honesty

When there is a medical mistake made in Illinois, and it harms a patient or even leads to a fatality, the patient and his or her family have the right to expect full disclosure and honesty from the medical professionals. Unfortunately, that does not always happen, as the fear of a medical malpractice legal filing and the accompanying consequences of the error often leads to an attempt to avoid responsibility. Increasingly, the goal between medical professionals and patients has tried to become completely candid with an apology for the error.
