Edwardsville Emergency Room Error Lawyers
Trust is an essential element for a successful doctor-patient relationship. For your physician's care to be effective, you must trust your doctor enough to confide the full scope of the illness or injury for which you are seeking treatment. However, even doctors make mistakes. If you believe that a doctor has made a mistake or in some way failed to provide you or a loved one with the level of care that you believe was necessary, then it is only right to verify the truth regarding the treatment that was administered.
At Mormino, Velloff & Snider, P.C., our Illinois medical malpractice attorneys bring decades of combined experience to the aid of each of our clients. If you believe that you or a loved one received inappropriate medical care, we can investigate the evidence that is present in your case.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can occur in a wide variety of instances, including:
- Emergency room errors
- Failure to diagnose cancer, heart attack, stroke or other diseases and injuries
- Surgical errors
- Post-surgical complications
- Birth injuries
- Pharmacy errors
- Medication errors/drug interactions
Medical malpractice can include any instance where a doctor or medical professional fails to meet the applicable standards of care.
Acting Now Can Preserve Your Right to Pursue Justice
Recent changes to Illinois law have made bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit more difficult. Before a case may proceed, a medical expert must certify the merit of the case after an investigation into the evidence. The volume of evidence that is part of a typical medical malpractice case can be immense. Gathering all of that information and organizing it into a format that can be analyzed are time consuming. All of these must be accomplished within certain timelines. It is imperative that you discuss your concerns with an attorney as soon as possible.
