What Is Medical Malpractice in Illinois?

Illinois law maintains that medical malpractice is when a healthcare professional provides substandard care that causes harm or injury. Examples include but are not limited to misdiagnoses, surgical errors, and prescribing or administering improper medication or anesthesia. Doctors, physician’s assistants, nurses, and other medical professionals can all be liable for malpractice.

How Long Do You Have to Make a Claim?

The statute of limitations in Illinois for medical malpractice is generally two years from the date of the incident. In some circumstances, individuals can have up to four years to file a claim. Numerous factors can affect the exact timeline, from the facility or professional responsible for the malpractice to the nature of the injuries. Consulting an attorney is the best way to clarify when a claim should be made.

Proving Medical Malpractice 

To prove medical malpractice, an injured party (the plaintiff) must demonstrate how a healthcare professional failed to adhere to the appropriate “standard of care.” Under the law, the “standard of care” is what would be expected of a fellow professional in a similar situation. Additionally, they must prove that the care provider’s malpractice resulted in injury or even wrongful death.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases 

Victims of medical malpractice can seek economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include lost wages and a lower earning capacity, in addition to the costs of therapy, rehabilitation, medicine, surgeries, and treatment. Non-economic damages are subjective and include things such as emotional duress, ongoing physical pain, scarring, disfigurement, and loss of companionship. 

In some cases, courts can award plaintiffs punitive damages. These are meant to punish the at-fault care provider for excessive negligence and deter similar conduct in the future.
