Woman with breast cancer files medical malpractice suit

A woman in another state recently claimed that two doctors did not diagnose and treat her breast cancer. She has therefore filed a lawsuit against the two doctors and the clinic at which they operated. In the same manner, anyone who falls victim to alleged medical malpractice in Illinois has the right to seek to hold the reportedly responsible doctor responsible through the civil court system.

In the recent out-of-state case, a woman, 41, claimed in her lawsuit that she met with the two doctors five times during a two-month period in 2018. However, she claimed that neither doctor physically examined her lump. In addition, they allegedly failed to diagnostically test her breast. Rather, one of the doctors reportedly told the woman that her lump was the result of a menstrual cycle.

According to the lawsuit, the woman's tumor could have still been cured when she initially went to the doctors. However, when other doctors later discovered the tumor, this was reportedly no longer the case. As a result, the woman is pursuing more than $30,000 in monetary damages for herself and her two young children, ages 7 and 11.

Sometimes, doctors in Illinois and elsewhere fail to exercise a reasonable degree of care when diagnosing and treating patients. Unfortunately, this can lead to serious physical harm for a patient. Fortunately, a patient who finds himself or herself in this situation has the right to file a medical malpractice suit, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. An understanding of what facts need to be proved will likely be essential for prevailing in this type of civil court case.
