Jury says doctors' failure to diagnose was medical malpractice

Wrongful death claim filed by out-of-state senator in son's death

Most Illinois residents associate medical malpractice claims with errors that occur while doctors are tending to a patient's physical well-being. However, a patient's mental health can also give rise to a wrongful death claim if a doctor fails to make the proper diagnosis or prescribe a course of treatment that will not only help the patient recover but also keep him or her safe.
