Damages of $1.3M awarded in surgical negligence case

Technological advances in medical devices have allowed people around the country and here in Illinois to receive replacements for bad knees and hips. When all goes well, the patient's pain is reduced and range of motion is increased. Sadly, when surgical negligence occurs, a patient could end up needing additional surgical procedures and could continue to endure substantial pain and loss of movement.

Mother says nursing negligence caused daughter's brain damage

Most Illinois parents look forward to the opportunity to watch their children grow into the adults they were destined to become. For some families that is not possible  due doctor or nursing negligence that leaves their child with a permanent disability that essentially takes away the future the child would have had otherwise. In some cases, the child will require care as long as he or she lives.

Diagnosis errors increase the death toll of cancer

Most Illinois residents are aware that many types of cancer are treatable and survivable if diagnosed in their early stages. New and more effective treatments are being devised to combat many cancers, but if they are not administered in time, they are useless. This is at least partly why diagnosis errors increase the death toll of the disease.

Hospital errors are notoriously under reported

Just like everyone else in the country, Illinois residents expect to leave the hospital with a correct diagnosis and course of treatment. They also expect the staff -- from doctors to orderlies -- to be professional and capable. Statistics show that when hospital errors occur, they are notoriously under reported despite these nearly universal expectations.
