Negligent doctors can be held responsible

People rely on doctors in Illinois all the time. Whether it's to heal from an injury or to diagnose an illness, doctors are usually the first call people make when they are having medical issues. Most people do not have other resources or their own skills to help solve medical issues in their own. This is why they place their trust in doctors.

Sadly, doctors fail to live up to people's expectations all the time. Doctors are only human and they can make mistakes. However, sometimes doctors are reckless and negligent. Their mistakes go beyond simple human errors and enter into preventable and tragic accidents.

If a doctor is not careful, a doctor can misdiagnose a person's injury or illness. A doctor can also fail to diagnose an issue with a patient. During surgeries, doctors can make errors leading to a worsened medical condition. Emergency room mistakes, hospital errors, birth injuries and other mistakes are also not uncommon.

When Illinois residents suffer as a result of medical malpractice, they should know that they have legal rights. The attorneys at Brady & Jensen, LLP understand what a tragic experience it can be to suffer from medical malpractice. We know how much a doctor's simple mistake can affect the future of an individual person.

We can work with people to get them the compensation they need following medical malpractice. Under Illinois law, residents may be entitled to compensation from doctors that have failed to live up to their duty of care. Individuals should understand their legal rights and how to exercise them when a doctor's mistake has led to an injury. Similarly, if the doctors mistake has led to the person's death, the victim's family also has legal rights.

For more information about these rights and our law firm, please see our medical malpractice webpage.
