Understanding Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death

Medical malpractice represents a serious breach of patients’ trust in their healthcare providers. It occurs when a healthcare professional, through action or omission, deviates from the accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to a patient. Common forms of medical malpractice that can lead to wrongful death include:

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: Failing to recognize, or incorrectly diagnosing a serious disease can lead to a lack of necessary treatment and, ultimately, to patient death.
  • Surgical Errors: These can range from operating on the wrong body part to leaving surgical instruments inside a patient or performing an incorrect procedure.
  • Improper Treatment: Administering the wrong treatment or an inappropriate procedure that leads to a patient’s deterioration rather than improvement.
  • Failure to Diagnose: Missing the early signs of a fatal condition, which, if recognized, could have been treatable.
  • Pharmaceutical Errors: This could include prescribing or administering incorrect medication dosages or drugs that cause harmful interactions.
  • Anesthesia Errors: Mistakes in anesthesia application, such as dosage errors or failure to monitor the patient’s vital signs, can be fatal.

Victims’ families are often entitled to compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, loss of companionship, and emotional distress. Our Chicago medical malpractice attorneys ensure that your case is thoroughly evaluated to advocate for the maximum compensation.
