When Surgical Mistakes Cost a Patient's Life

When surgical mistakes cost a patient's life, a case of wrongful death may be brought against the surgeon, hospital or other healthcare professional. Medical malpractice happens when healthcare providers fail in their responsibility to deliver quality healthcare to their patients. There are many types of medical malpractice that can result in personal injuries or even death. When surgeons fail to deliver the best possible care and make surgical errors that cause wrongful death, families may seek compensation for their loss.

Underreporting of Medical Mistakes Prevents a Safe Healthcare Environment

Without proper standards set in place to report medical error, healthcare professionals cannot properly identify and correct problems. This prevents a safe healthcare environment for patients and can lead to injuries and death due to medical error. A personal injury lawyer in Chicago, Illinois can help victims and their families seek damages for medical malpractice or wrongful death cases.

Informed Consent Protects Patient Safety

In order to reduce the possibility of serious injury or death, physicians conducting medical treatment on a non-emergency basis in Illinois are required to obtain patient consent prior to commencing medical care.
