Representing Victims Of Hospital Negligence
Hospitals are large organizations filled with numerous professionals handling various important medical tasks during a patient’s stay. As a patient, you trust them to do their job well and provide quality care. When that care is met with error, the consequences can be catastrophic.
At Raymond & Raymond, Ltd., our compassionate advocates work closely with clients throughout the Schaumburg area who are seriously injured/or have become critically ill due to a hospital error. We offer personalized guidance through the complex process of a medical malpractice lawsuit, always keeping one goal in mind: striving for full and fair compensation.
Most Common Types Of Hospital Errors
When medical professionals make mistakes, they need to be held responsible. Often, the big hospital they work for has access to a team of lawyers whose mission is to pay out as little as possible to victims of hospital mistakes. Our Chicago-area lawyers are highly experienced in medical malpractice cases and can work closely with you on these and other medical problems:
- Physician mistakes
- Surgical errors
- Emergency room errors
- Nursing care errors
- Incorrect lab results
- Anesthesia administration errors
- Hospital-acquired infections
- Medication mistakes
You might think the details to your case are clear: Your surgeon made a mistake, and you do not need a lawyer. But often there are complexities unseen at the start of a case. Please talk to us before you go it alone. A gross medical error can have an impact on your health for years to come.
Real-Life Examples Of Hospital Errors
We have represented patients in Illinois who are injured due to errors in various hospital departments by a range of medical professionals. The following are past examples of the types of cases we handle:

- A nurse misunderstood a doctor’s order and gave a 10-year-old patient 100 times the dose ordered, resulting in death.
- An emergency room doctor did not promptly diagnose a toddler’s bacterial meningitis and began antibiotic treatment, resulting in a progressed infection which caused brain damage and loss of hearing.
- A hospital allowed a psychiatric patient to commit suicide despite being on suicide watch.
- A radiologist misdiagnosed a 30-year-old’s pulmonary embolism as pneumonia, resulting in failure to give blood thinner medication and subsequent fatal pulmonary embolism.
