Holding doctors to a high standard in Illinois

One of the most important things to know about medical malpractice in Illinois is that it in no way needs to be intentional. The doctor may attempt to be as careful as possible, and he or she may take a few steps to do so, but negligence and accidents can still lead to malpractice claims. If a doctor forgets an important detail -- such as what types of medicine you are allergic to -- it can have a drastic impact on your life and your health, even though the doctor did not mean any harm.

The standard that is examined with these cases is what is known as "reasonable" medical care. This is deemed to be the expected level of care that would have been offered at any hospital or treatment center. When a doctor falls short of what is expected by neglecting to do things, forgetting different steps, or making mistakes that are inexcusable, the level of care drops below that line.

The issue with most of these cases, then, is that doctors are held to a very high standard. They are entrusted with people's lives. They are given control over the quality of a person's existence going forward. Even the smallest mistakes can have drastic, long-lasting impacts on a patient. These cases are not about nit-picking, but about keeping people safe in the health care industry, and about ensuring that doctors strive to uphold the highest levels of professionalism.
