Illinois jury awards family over $2.4M for hospital negligence

Illinois residents suffering from an illness, injury or other ailment go to the hospital expecting to leave in better condition than when they arrived. A lot of faith is placed in the doctors and other medical staff to diagnose and treat whatever ails them. Few expect that going to the hospital will involve an element of unnecessary risk, or that patients could become the victim of hospital negligence.
