Seeing a doctor doesn’t mean we will have positive results as a patient. The news can be devastating when a medical professional tells a patient that they have an illness or needs surgery. But the news can be even more tragic when it is later found out that a patient was improperly diagnosed, given the wrong treatment plan or errors were made during a surgery.
Medical malpractice can be a serious situation, as it can be harmful and even fatal to a patient. As a patient, individuals in Illinois and elsewhere believe and trust in the expertise of medical professionals. The unfortunate reality is that even though doctors have obtained years of education and training, mistakes and errors could still occur.
