When a misdiagnosis is a medical malpractice case

Although Granite City residents and those who live on the Illinois side of the Saint Louis area probably tend to think of doctors as the cream of the crop when it comes to having smarts, medicine is still too much of an unknown for even the best doctor not to make a mistake from time to time. Often, these errors entail not diagnosing a patient's true condition promptly.

Medical malpractice requires determining 'reasonable care'

The state of Illinois is home to some of the best medical professionals in the country, if not the world. These doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers, for the most part, do a wonderful job saving lives and caring for the sick and injured throughout the state. Unfortunately, however, no matter how well-trained and dedicated, medical professionals are human, and, as such, are susceptible to making errors, for a variety of reasons. When this occurs, an individual who expected to be taken care of and regain their health may end up suffering further injury and require more treatment or have to deal with permanent degradation of health.

Help for nursing home and medical malpractice cases

Residents of Granite City, the eastern suburbs of Saint Louis and all of southern Illinois put a lot of trust in medical providers like doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. In many cases, they quite literally put their lives in the hands of these people, trusting that they have the competence and willingness to protect and preserve their health.
