Personal Injuries Sustained from Healthcare Institutions in Belvidere, Illinois
The last place anyone thinks about sustaining a personal injury is a hospital or healthcare institution. After all, the whole point of visiting a healthcare facility is to improve your well-being by finding treatment for your injuries. Unfortunately, most types of healthcare are fraught with risks. Procedures aren’t always successful, negligent mistakes are commonly made, and there will always be a margin for human error.
As tough as it is to admit, medical malpractice is actually the third leading cause of death in the United States – right behind heart disease and cancer. More often than not, personal injuries that arise from medical malpractice cases are unintentional. For example, a pharmacist could unknowingly mix up two patients’ prescriptions.
Furthermore, injuries and other types of mistreatment are on the rise in nursing homes. Seniors in care facilities typically have a lot of important health demands, and a failure to meet the physical and emotional needs of an elder could very well qualify as abuse. Fortunately, there is good news. If you or a loved one has been victimized by medical malpractice or nursing home neglect, you are very likely entitled to compensation for mistreatment.
