Man files suit for TB misdiagnoses that may have led to paralysis

A man from a state other than Illinois recently sued over a dozen health care professionals after they allegedly failed to properly diagnose him. As a result, he is now paralyzed from his waist down. It is his belief that multiple misdiagnoses led to the paralysis.

Surgical negligence claimed in medical malpractice lawsuit

An orthopedic surgeon from a state outside Illinois is being sued. A former patient claims that the doctor engaged in surgical negligence when he negligently placed a screw in the wrong place in his back. This made it necessary for the man to undergo two additional surgeries, increasing his medical expenses as well as his pain and suffering. 

A case for hospital negligence reaches the U.S. government

According to an announcement from another state, Illinois residents may be interested to know that the U.S. government plans to pay $1.3 million to a family whose baby died at a military hospital three years ago. The 4-month-old baby was suffering from labored breathing and also a respiratory infection according to the case presented for hospital negligence. She was admitted into the emergency room on October 18, 2012, after she had been suffering for several days from her ailments.
