Routine medical test death leads to $2.6 million settlement

Fatal medical negligence is not limited to complicated procedures. Like a surgical error, a routine procedure can also have deadly consequences. In one medical malpractice case, the University of Chicago paid $2.6 million to the family of a 61-year-old woman who died when her artery was damaged in a medical test. Her daughter, who filed the lawsuit, claimed that she literally bled to death.

Is your loved one receiving high-quality care or not?

When your aging parent moved into an Illinois nursing home, it might have been a highly emotional experience for you. As an adult child, you want what's best for him or her, just as your parents have always had your best interests in mind when you were growing up. Once you researched and chose a particular nursing home that best fit your parent's financial, emotional and physical needs, you knew you'd have to trust care providers to keep him or her safe, especially in your absence.

Negligence blamed for death of nursing home resident

Failure to provide proper care, especially medical treatment, to nursing home residents can lead to tragic consequences. A Belleville elderly care facility's neglect led to the death of one of its residents almost two years ago, according to a wrongful death lawsuit recently filed by her family.

Congress considers ending military malpractice immunity

Three U.S. Supreme Court cases from 1950 blocked lawsuits against the military for medical negligence. However, Congress is now considering legislation that would allow service members to sue the federal government for medical malpractice committed by military doctors and facilities.
