Irreparable harm and the failure to diagnose and treat an illness

Illinois residents go to doctors because they are having symptoms that they cannot explain. They rely on medical professionals to figure out what is wrong and provide a course of treatment that will either cure or manage the issue. A failure to diagnose and treat an illness at all, or in a timely manner, could lead to irreparable harm from which the patient might never fully recover, if at all. In some cases, the patient does not survive.

Illinois physicians are required to meet a certain standard of care when treating patients. When that standard is not met, patients can suffer debilitating, permanent or fatal injuries. No family expects to lose a loved one at the hands of a doctor, nurse or other medical professional. If negligence was suspected, discussing a potential wrongful death claim would be appropriate.
