No Illinois resident expects a visit to a physician or medical facility to do anything other than help resolve a medical issue. Unfortunately, sometimes, a patient can suffer sudden and unexpected harm through a wrong diagnosis or a misdiagnosis that compromises his or her health. Wrong diagnoses have even killed patients.
A wrong diagnosis, missed diagnosis or delay in diagnosis all can qualify as medical negligence or medical malpractice. In addition, a medical practitioner or facility may be liable for damages, if the error results in medical complications, injury or death.
An injured patient or surviving family members of someone who dies as a result of medical malpractice would find dealing with a legal case extremely difficult on their own. In virtually every case, consulting an experienced attorney is the best way to hold a negligent party accountable.
