Wife files hospital negligence claim re husband's brain injury

A hospital is involved in a legal entanglement with a former patient's wife. The husband died while in the hospital's care, and his surviving wife filed a lawsuit claiming hospital negligence. Illinois residents in similar circumstances may have the right to pursue legal action against any parties deemed negligent.

Nursing errors can do irreparable harm to Illinois patients

Nurses are some of the most hard-working individuals in our society. They work long hours on their feet each day, ensuring that their patients are well cared for. However, this does not mean that they are incapable of making a mistake, or of behaving negligently. Nurses often have extended contact with patients, meaning that nursing errors can have serious consequences for patients. Here at Pfaff Gill & Ports LTD, we have worked with numerous Illinois families who have been harmed by this type of medical malpractice.

Hospital negligence could lead to serious injury in Illinois

Many Illinois residents know that negligence can lead to serious repercussions no matter what area the neglect occurred in. Hospital negligence is an especially unfortunate situation as many individuals put their trust in medical professionals in order to care for their health. If a hospital neglects the care of a patient, the patient could become more ill or suffer a serious injury. Should a party believe that such negligence played a role in a negative outcome, he or she may wish to consider legal action.
