Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorney
Featured: Attotney Uche secures $1.18 million against Chicago police for wromgful death.
Medical malpractice occurs when doctors, nurses or other medical personnel deviate from accepted standard of care or medical practice.
This type of negligence or sometimes recklessness can the devastating to say the least. For example, within the medical context, patients are already fragile or exposed to substantial risk, thus, any deviation from standard medical practice or procedure can have life threatening or life ending consequences.
Surprisingly, medical malpractice is all too common. In fact, studies have shown that annually, there are over 400,000 unnecessary deaths in hospitals within the United States. Most medical malpractice stem from negligent acts involving failure to treat, delay in treatment, surgical errors and failure to diagnose. In fact, a recent study showed that misdiagnosis was a common reason for malpractice claims.
But, most medical malpractice goes unreported. To avoid an increase in liability insurance and to protect their licenses, most hospitals and medical personnel become uncooperative at the least and cover up, at worst in the event of any medical malpractice injury.
