Informed consent ruled irrelevant to surgical negligence claim

In Illinois and all other jurisdictions, where a plaintiff loses a medical malpractice case at trial, that claimant may appeal the decision to the appropriate appellate court. Occasionally, the appellate court will reverse the jury verdict and remand the case back for a retrial or other disposition. This can happen in medical malpractice cases that involve the issue of surgical negligence, as well as in many other medical negligence claims.

Facility sued for hospital negligence after mom's death

Childbirth should be a celebratory occasion for new parents and extended family members. For the majority of Illinois families and others around the country, this is the case. However, when tragedy occurs, the once-happy event can quickly turn into a dire situation. A woman in another state recently died after delivering her baby. Her family wants to hold the medical center liable for the hospital negligence that contributed to her death and has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Multi-million dollar settlement for infant's birth injuries

Childbirth is an exciting event anticipated by hundreds of expectant parents in Illinois and elsewhere every day. However, the joy of a birth can quickly turn to fear and sadness when complications arise in the delivery process. A couple in another state experienced a devastating outcome when their doctor left the delivery room for an extended period of time, resulting in severe birth injuries to their newborn son.

Alleged surgical negligence robs patient of healthy kidney

Illinois residents may be aware that statistics indicate that one of the most common surgical errors is the removal of the wrong body part. It would only be logical to ask how that can happen. However, a civil lawsuit that was recently filed in another state explains how error upon error, along with alleged surgical negligence, led to the removal of a patient's healthy left kidney instead of a softball-sized tumor that was attached to his right kidney.
