Medical Malpractice Claims
While minor illnesses and injuries can often be treated with over-the-counter medicines and rest, serious health problems may require assistance from medical professionals. Doctors, nurses, technicians, and other trained medical staff have a responsibility to provide competent care to their patients, or they may face serious medical malpractice claims.
If you or someone you love has been injured by the negligent or reckless actions of a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional, you may be eligible to pursue legal action against the responsible party. For assistance with your medical malpractice claim, contact the Kankakee medical malpractice lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., at (815) 929-9292 today.
Types of Medical Malpractice Claims
Common types of malpractice claims include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Prescription errors
- Surgical errors
- Birth injuries
- Anesthesia errors
- Wrong-site surgery
- Nursing home negligence
- Emergency room negligence
If a medical professional failed to adhere to a reasonable level of care, the patient may be able to take legal action by filing a malpractice case. It is important to have an experienced attorney on your side to help explain the process of filing your claim and to defend your rights if your case goes to court. When a case goes to trial, expert witnesses (typically other doctors) may be called in to testify as to whether or not the care given by the medical professional followed the standards of medical care.
