In Illinois, the statute of limitations on medical malpractice allows two years from when someone discovers or should have discovered the improper actions or treatment by a medical professional. While people have a general understanding of what a treatment plan may consist of, those plans can vary greatly from case to case. For example, one case may involve a misreading of an X-ray or an improper cast application, while another may involve a significant deviation from the required standard of care during a surgery that results in a major injury or even patient death. Medical malpractice cases in Rockford must be carefully researched and prepared for. We can help.
This also can take the form of medical negligence, which occurs when a doctor does something to a patient that a reasonably careful physician would not do, or when a doctor fails to do something that he or she should have done when treating a patient. Examples of negligence in medical malpractice cases include a delay or failure to diagnose a disease, or misuse of prescription drugs or a medical device.
In the majority of medical malpractice cases, the injury inflicted isn’t intentional. But medical professionals are held to a high standard of care. Their decisions often mean the difference between life and death, and accidents that cause serious injury cannot be ignored.
In medical malpractice cases, expert testimony is a requirement, and these expert opinions are often a crucial feature of the patient’s case. A qualified expert will be required at trial, and an experienced medical malpractice attorney with working relationships with medical professionals will help you recover the compensation you deserve.
