Simple Mistake or Medical Malpractice?

According to malpractice lawyers in Chicago, many seemingly simple
mistakes can lead to medical malpractice lawsuits. One of the most common
causes of mistakes and medical malpractice is inexperience.

For example, a former Stone Park police officer was recently
awarded a $16.2 million settlement for medical malpractice, thanks to assistance
from his Chicago medical malpractice lawyer. George Nissen was being treated at
the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center when he suffered a
traumatic brain injury. The injury left NIssen a quadriplegic who is unable to
eat or speak.

According to NIssen’s Chicago medical malpractice lawyers, the
hospital staff failed to properly monitor his condition, specifically his
intracranial pressure. Perhaps at the root of the medical malpractice complaint
is the fact that three of the nurses assigned to Mr. Nissen’s case had no
previous experience with patient care in the neurosurgical intensive care

This is just one of many examples of how a simple mistake or lack
of experience can lead to medical malpractice. Doctors, nurses and other medical
practitioners have a responsibility to provide the best care possible to their
patients. Effectively completing what may seem like routine tasks, like
monitoring vital signs, following procedures and protocols, or administering
medications exactly at the designated time can help avoid many mistakes and
medical malpractice.

Unfortunately, medical errors are common, particularly with the
current state of health care. For this reason, malpractice lawyers in Chicago
file hundreds of cases per year for medical malpractice. If you or a loved one
were victims of medical malpractice, you should contact a Chicago medical malpractice attorney. Even if it seems like a health care professional made a
simple, honest mistake – if it came at the expense of your health and well
being, it may be medical malpractice.
