What Is Malpractice, And What Should You Do About It?

Medical malpractice is a term lawyers use to describe negligence that results in death or injury by a health care provider who fails to adhere to the accepted standards of practice and care for the relevant procedure. This includes doctors, nurses, dentists, technicians, pathologists, hospitals, nursing home facilities, and any person or entity that provides medical care.

The Illinois Supreme Court recently ruled that caps on damages involving medical malpractice cases are unconstitutional. It is the third time that the state’s highest court made that finding, eliminating limits in medical negligence cases. This lack of a cap means that medical providers, medical facilities and their insurance companies fiercely contest malpractice claims. As such, it is important to choose an attorney who can stand up to these large entities and fight for justice on your behalf. It is also vital that you seek help right away, as insurance companies often launch their lawyers into action immediately upon learning of potential malpractice.
