Medical Malpractice Suit Filed in St. Clair County
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
medical malpractice suit was filed by a patient alleging that a catheter was misplaced. The
complaint was filed back in October in the St. Clair County Circuit Court
in Belleville, Illinois. It alleges that several medical entities and
doctors, including Protestant Memorial Medical Center, did not adhere
to medical care standards. The defendant claims the negligent acts and/or
omissions resulted in the permanent and severe injuries to the victim.
He claims that he suffered vascular and internal injuries which have resulted
in pain, suffering, further medical expenses and mental anguish. He is
claiming the defendants did not use the proper equipment to assess and
place the catheter correctly and did not realize that the catheter was
placed improperly. He is seeking over $50,000 in compensation and costs
of the suit.
Medical malpractice is caused when a doctor or nurse, or other medical
professionals, does not provide proper health care treatment. More frightening
is the fact that over $3 billion has been spent in medical payouts each
year. It is crucial to consult an experienced medical malpractice attorney
if you suspect you have been injured due to negligence from any medical
staff member. An attorney can help assess your case, conduct interviews
with persons of interest, review medical records and determine if you
have grounds to pursue legal action.
