Causes and symptoms of brain injuries

Residents in Illinois may want to learn more about the causes and symptoms associated with the occurrence of brain injuries. People who suffer brain injuries may exhibit a number of different symptoms, some more severe than others. Some of the common symptoms include numbness, debilitating headaches, nausea, excessive fatigue and slurred speech. More serious head injuries may lead to to weakness in the appendages, loss of vision, loss of consciousness or vomiting.

Illinois' medical malpractice statute of limitations

Illinois patients who suspect that they were the victims of medical malpractice may be unsure where they will find the time to collect their medical records, contact an attorney and initiate a malpractice case. It may be even more difficult if they are still recovering from a botched surgery or are undergoing long-term treatment as a result of a delayed diagnosis. However, because of the statute of limitations on medical malpractice suits, it may be beneficial to start the process as soon as possible.

What is informed consent?

Doctors in Illinois are required to present patients with a clear description of their medical condition as well as treatment options. Failing to do so could be construed as negligence. Health care professionals cannot simply give patients the treatments they think are best under most circumstances. Patients must agree to receive treatment after going over their choices. This is known as informed consent.
