Medical Malpractice: Why You Should Always Hire a Legal Professional

A medical malpractice case occurs whenever a healthcare provider doesn’t meet the medical standard of care for the circumstances surrounding a situation. If this seems nebulous and vague, it is. Because of this, you’ll have to find expert witnesses to testify that the care you received in your case wasn’t up to medical standards. These cases happen whenever:

  • There is a breach of medical duty
  • An injury was caused by this breach

A few examples of medical malpractice include:

  • A doctor fails to diagnose a condition that a reasonable doctor would
  • A negligent misdiagnosis that leads to further illness or injury due
  • If a surgeon stitches up a patient after an operation with tools left inside
  • When a doctor provides a non-critical treatment that a patient didn’t consent to
  • If a healthcare professional performs the wrong operation on the wrong patient

If you have any questions about whether your case qualifies as medical malpractice, the best way to get an answer is to consult a personal
injury lawyer.

Your Medical Negligence Attorney Should Connect with You as a Human

The first thing you’ll have to keep in mind when you file your medical malpractice claim is the statute of limitations surrounding these cases. Usually, you need to file your claim within a two-year statute of limitation or the court will dismiss your cased. This two-year window begins when a victim first becomes aware of their injury, not necessarily the date it occurred. Regardless, you need to file your case within four years of the date of the actual medical error. This extends to eight years for incidents of malpractice committed against a minor.

The state of Illinois also requires you to secure an affidavit of a healthcare professional stating that there is a “reasonable and meritorious case” for the lawsuit. This medical professional must:

  • Have specific knowledge about the case’s central medical issue
  • Practice or teach the area of medicine central to the case within the previous six years
  • Is competent within the boundaries of the case’s topic.

Without an affidavit of merit from a medical professional, the case can’t proceed. The law established this provision to keep the court system from becoming backlogged with medical malpractice cases filed by
opportunistic lawyers.
