Common Forms of Medical Negligence

Hospital negligence takes many different forms. At the most fundamental level, it involves a healthcare provider violating the medical standard of care which directly causes the patient harm. Some examples of hospital medical malpractice cases our Rosemont medical negligence lawyers handle include:

  • Misdiagnosing or Delaying Diagnosis - Failing to properly evaluate symptoms in a timely way or incorrectly determining the underlying illness or condition. This can allow diseases and infections to rapidly advance before proper treatment is given.
  • Medication Errors - Administering the wrong type or dose of medication leads to further illness, permanent injury, or death. Hospital pharmacies dispense thousands of doses annually, increasing the risk of human error.
  • Surgical Mistakes - Making an incision in the wrong location or accidentally leaving surgical equipment inside the patient's body leading to internal bleeding, organ damage, or severe infection.
  • Emergency Room Negligence - Failing to thoroughly assess and test ER patients which then delays life-saving treatment. Busy ERs increase the risk of critical symptoms being overlooked.
  • Childbirth Injuries - Usually caused by doctor or nursing errors during labor and delivery including improper use of birth-assisting tools leading to oxygen deprivation and brain damage.
  • Hospital-Acquired Infections - Becoming sickened by infectious bacteria and viruses due to the facility's unclean conditions and lack of infection control policies.

These are just a few examples of how Rosemont-area hospital negligence occurs. There are many other forms medical malpractice can take in a healthcare environment ranging from improper equipment operation to a delayed cancer diagnosis.

If you believe a hospital facility or doctor is responsible for causing your injury or illness in Rosemont, it merits a closer review. Our medical malpractice law firm can analyze your situation to determine if negligence appears evident.

Hospital Medical Errors Can Cause Lifelong Harm

Hospital negligence often inflicts devastating consequences on patients. Instead of being properly diagnosed and treated, victims can wind up much more injured, sick, or disabled due to incompetent medical care in a facility counted on to provide healing.

Some of the most tragic hospital errors result in severe birth injuries to infants causing irreversible conditions like:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Seizure Disorders
  • Developmental Disabilities

These can necessitate around-the-clock medical care and special education costing millions over a lifetime.

Adults also experience life-changing harm when hospitals botch surgical procedures, misread test results, or fail to prevent accidents. Some major injuries our lawyers see in hospital medical malpractice cases include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries - Causing partial or total paralysis
  • Brain Damage - Resulting in severe cognitive and physical impairment
  • Surgical Errors - Leading to severe infections, organ damage or disfigurement
  • Amputations - From misdiagnosed circulation disorders or infection spread
  • Stroke - Due to untreated risk factors or improper medication
  • Wrongful Death

The negligent actions of hospitals can destroy patients' health, independence, and livelihoods. These kinds of injuries usually require extensive long-term rehabilitation, home healthcare, adaptive equipment, and lifestyle adjustments. Our dedicated medical negligence lawyers fight to help ensure the injured patient gets the maximum compensation possible.

Key Factors in Medical Negligence Claims Against Rosemont Hospitals

Key Factors in Medical Negligence Claims Against Rosemont Hospitals

Hospital liability cases involve complicated legal and medical issues. Having an experienced lawyer makes all the difference. The key factors our team assesses when investigating potential medical negligence claims include:

  • Duty of Care - Did the hospital or doctor have a duty to uphold reasonable standards of care for the patient's treatment? This duty extends to all hospital staff including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, technicians, and other personnel involved in patient care.
  • Breach of Duty - Can we prove through expert testimony, medical records, and other evidence that the hospital breached its duty of care by deviating from the recognized standard? This often involves comparing what the negligent hospital did or failed to do, versus what competent medical providers would have done.
  • Injury Caused by Breach - Is there clear causation between the hospital's negligent actions and the extent of the patient's profound injuries or death? Establishing this link is crucial.
  • Significant Harm - Can we show the patient experienced "significant injury" as defined in California medical malpractice law? In most cases, our lawyers only accept negligence cases resulting in catastrophic harm unless liability and compensation value are very clear.

If our investigation determines evident negligence caused disabling injury or death to you or a loved one in a Rosemont medical facility, our fiercely passionate medical malpractice lawyers will fight relentlessly to recover maximum compensation for lost wages, medical costs, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)What are typical medical malpractice settlements and verdicts worth?

Most medical negligence cases settle confidentially before trial so there are no public records. For those that do reach a jury verdict, payouts average over one million dollars in California and can exceed tens of millions for severe birth injuries or negligence resulting in multiple deaths.

Is there a time limit for filing a malpractice claim in California?

Yes. Per state law, you normally have at most 3 years from the negligence act or one year from when its harm was discovered to pursue a claim. There are limited exceptions.

Will filing a malpractice claim lead my doctor or hospital to retaliate against me?

It is strictly illegal under California law for any medical provider to discriminate or refuse treatment because you are asserting your legal rights. Reporting retaliation also can result in professional discipline for the providers involved under state medical board authority.

What does "proof of negligence" mean for medical errors?

Healthcare providers who cause patient harm are not necessarily negligent. Under California's rules for medical liability cases, negligence means failing to meet well-established "standards of care" in diagnosing or treating medical conditions as competent providers would. This breach directly causes injury or death.

What expenses can I recover through a medical malpractice settlement?

Beyond getting validation for the terrible harm inflicted, successful verdicts and settlements account for all present and future injury-related costs. These can include medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation services, in-home nursing care, specialized medical equipment, and much more. Non-economic damages like pain, mental anguish, and loss of companionship also play a major role.
