Medical professionals, especially those employed in an emergency room, can cause severe injuries or death from a mistake. Whether they incorrectly diagnose someone, give the wrong medication, or don’t treat a patient quickly enough, their negligence can have severe consequences. You should contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
Being extremely busy is an acceptable reason for making a mistake in many situations, but unfortunately, this same logic doesn’t apply in an emergency room. Emergency rooms inherently demand more accuracy than most other areas of medical practice. Medical professionals, such as medical assistants, nurses, and doctors, must think fast on their feet in the emergency room to give every patient quality care.
If they can’t do this or make a mistake, it can mean the difference between life and death for a patient. A knowledgeable Chicago medical malpractice lawyer can help patients and families who become victims of medical malpractice cases.
Emergency room errors can be different, yet typically they can all be traced back to the negligence of at least one care provider. All medical providers in emergency rooms owe a duty of care to the patients they serve. Common general emergency room mistakes include:
Damages are financial compensation for the losses an injured individual incurred because of their injury. If you were injured by a medical professional, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages stemming from their negligence. However, it’s crucial that you are aware that your time to do so is limited. The Illinois statute of limitations for medical malpractice injuries is two years under state law 735 ILCS 5/13-201. Injured patients must file their lawsuit within two years of the date of their injury or within two years of the discovery date of their injury, or when the patient reasonably should have known about the injury.
Medical malpractice victims often claim the following damages:
It is imperative to have an experienced lawyer calculate your past and future damages to ensure you receive the full amount of compensation that you need to cover your losses.
