Yorkville Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Lawyers for Medical Error Victims in Kendall County and Kane County
While medical patients should expect to receive expert care when they check into a hospital, sometimes the results are catastrophic due to the negligence of a physician or medical staff. How serious and widespread is the problem? According to a Johns Hopkins study, over 250,000 people die in the U.S. every year due to medical errors, which would make medical mistakes the third-leading cause of death in the country behind heart disease and cancer.
Treatment, surgery, child delivery, and other types of medical procedures can turn tragic if there is a breakdown in the standard of care, which is the customary type and level of care accepted in the medical profession for any given ailment or operation. At McAdams & Sartori, LLC, we represent medical malpractice victims whose lives have been significantly impacted due to mistakes by those entrusted to provide safe and suitable care. If that is the scenario you face, we will fight to protect your rights and pursue justified compensation for expenses and problems related to your injury.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is when a health care provider's negligent action or inaction causes injury or death to a patient. Any deviation from the established standard of care that results in injury could be considered medical negligence, and medical malpractice compensation may be awarded.
Types of medical malpractice include:
- Undiagnosed or misdiagnosed symptoms
- Deficient medical history assessment
- Failure to administer medical tests or incorrect testing
- Misread or neglected laboratory results
- Mistaken medication or improper dosage
- Surgical error or unnecessary surgery
- Premature hospital discharge or insufficient post-care
If you believe a medical injury you suffered resulted from any of these circumstances, McAdams & Sartori, LLC can conduct a full investigation to determine who was negligent and to what extent, and enlist the help of a medical expert who can confirm the findings. If negligence is apparent, we can file a medical malpractice lawsuit to seek damages for suffering and expenses you have endured.
Successful Medical Malpractice Cases
To achieve the desired outcome in a medical malpractice case, in addition to a standard of care violation, credible evidence must exist that the injury suffered was a direct result of medical negligence. The injury must also have caused a noticeable negative impact on your life and well-being. This may include disability, lingering pain, and financial hardship because of medical bills and lost wages.
When you enter a hospital, you simply want to feel better when you leave. No one is prepared for the traumatic experience of having their problems compounded by medical neglect or oversight and the thought of suing a large health care provider. At McAdams & Sartori, LLC, we understand how daunting it can seem when you are a medical malpractice victim who simply wants justice, and we are fully prepared to pursue what you rightfully deserve.
