Filing a Medical Malpractice Compensation Claim
Anytime a Doctor, Nurse, Medical Practitioner Hospital or Medical Facility makes a mistake in diagnosing, treating or providing care, it raises a concern over whether medical malpractice or medical mistake has occurred. If an error can be verified, the victim may have a valid malpractice claim to obtain financial compensation for their damages, injuries, harm or premature death.
The complexity of a viable medical malpractice claim often involves significantly more than an error by the healthcare facility, professional or others. To successfully resolve a claim for compensation, the victim (through their attorney) must prove a medical relationship exists between the patient and the healthcare provider. In addition, there must’ve been a provision of care that included a diagnosis, treatment or decision that can be described as substandard medical care. It is this breach of care that defines medical negligence.
Finally, the negligence must be directly associated with the harm or death of the patient and that the damages endured can be defined as quantifiable harm. Once the inappropriate medical standard of care has directly caused injury to the patient, the personal injury attorney working on behalf of the victim will file all the necessary paperwork in accordance with the law to the appropriate courthouse. The case in Bond County will be filed, handled and settled at:
Bond County Circuit Court
200 W. College
Greenville, IL 62246
Circuit Court Clerk Rex Catron

Medical Malpractice Claims involving Greenville Regional Hospital
Wrongful Death Claim Brought after Man Visits Emergency Room
Here, a fifty-seven-year-old man died not long after visiting an Illinois ER (Greenville Regional Hospital). Then, the family started asking questions. Apparently, he was experiencing respiratory pain. That is what prompted him to go in the first place. However, it seems that the medical staff did not conduct appropriate lab testing. Also, they failed to do a cardiac consultation or proper diagnosis. He died shortly thereafter. The man was survived by his sister. This claim contends that the events were related, and that the development would not have led to death but for malpractice.
Emergency Hysterectomy Triggers New Hospital Claim
This hospital dispute involved a woman and a few doctors. It took place at an Illinois medical facility (Greenville Regional Hospital). The woman was set to have a laparoscopic operation done because she was experiencing bleeding in her uterus. However, in the course of that procedure, surgeons cut into her uterus and then impacted her bowel as well. None of these surgical errors were fixed prior to the ending of the operation. Consequently, she needed a complete abdominal hysterectomy to correct their errors. This claim was brought after these events unfolded. It targeted the doctor and the related OB-GYN association. If successful, she could have received compensation for her damages including pain, suffering, disability, expenses, and more.
Improper Biopsy Potentially Leads to Tumors and New Claim
In this hospital matter, a woman had a biopsy done on her right breast. The procedure took place at Greenville Regional Hospital in Illinois. Allegedly, the defendant staff members failed to diagnose and treat her for fibromatosis. That is a condition which can lead to tumors. Also, the woman alleges that this could have been identified in the original diagnostic evaluation. Subsequent to these developments, she needed a complete mastectomy on the right side of her chest. An entire portion of her chest had to be taken out. This claim targets the doctor and the associated pathology group. It alleges their negligent diagnosis and treatment was malpractice. Further, it claims their errors caused her downward spiral of health as well as long-term suffering and related costs. It seeks compensation for the tangible and intangible harms and losses that they created for her.
Plaintiff Suggests Surgery was Gratuitous in New Case
A young, twenty-five-year-old woman filed this Illinois hospital lawsuit. Her claim argued that doctors performed a needless operation when less-invasive measures would have sufficed. During a consultation with one of her physicians, she was told that endometriosis was the cause of the pain in her pelvis. Also, she was instructed that only a complete hysterectomy and removal of her ovaries would fix the problem. After these events unfolded, the woman argued that this was all gratuitous. She claimed her doctors misread her lab and other tests and misdiagnosed her. Then, they performed the surgery needlessly. Besides the removal of her ovaries, she needed hormone therapy on a regular basis to cope with the alleged negligent procedure. These events cost her financially, physically, and emotionally. To make up for the trauma of the entire ordeal, she filed this claim in Illinois.
