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 health care 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

Greenville, IL 62246
