    IL Medical Malpractice After Delivering Twins

    OVER $1 BILLION IN RECOVERIES FOR OUR CLIENTS

    In Chicago, a patient’s guardian successfully sued the hospital where the patient’s twins were delivered because she was left disabled following the delivery. The patient carrying the twins had what is known as a “placenta accreta.” This is when the placenta is attached deeply to the uterine wall. After her doctor successfully delivered her twins, the doctor delivered the placenta. There is evidence that during this process, the placenta was torn and caused the patient to hemorrhage, leaving her with seizures and a hypoxic brain injury. While the patient was unable to bring a lawsuit forward, her guardian brought it forward on her behalf and stated that the hospital–Presence Hospitals–was negligent in its care of the patient. 

    The medical malpractice suit claims that in addition to improper care by the anesthesiologist, the patient did not receive the necessary resuscitative care and there was no blood in the operating room available for a transfusion, leaving the patient waiting more than half an hour for a necessary transfusion. Because of the damage the hospital did, the patient now has an intellectual age of 3 years and 3 months old. The jury in this medical malpractice case awarded the plaintiff $14,756, 744.03. This included damages for:

    • Past medical expenses
    • Future medical expenses
    • Future caretaking expenses
    • Loss of normal life
    • Pain and suffering

    Find a Medical Malpractice Team You Can Trust

    The team at Disparti Law Group understands that when a person goes to a doctor’s office or a hospital they are expecting to get an exceptional level of care and feel completely safe in the hands of the doctors. Patients put a high level of trust into the doctors they receive care from and it can feel like that trust is completely destroyed when a doctor or similar party at a hospital has been negligent or careless. The difference between a doctor being careless and any other person is that your doctor’s negligence can quickly make your situation life or death. Your doctor may be prescribing you certain medication or they might be operating on you for surgery. When a doctor makes a mistake, it could mean more than simply not getting the care you deserve. You may also find yourself in a situation where you are no longer able to live life the way you used to. 

    If you believe that you have been injured by the negligence of a doctor, you should not hesitate to get the legal help you deserve from a Chicago, IL medical malpractice lawyer. It can be extremely difficult to go up against a doctor or hospital because they will often have much deeper pockets than an individual person and they will have lawyers on retainer. However, when you work with our group, you can know you are getting the care you need and lawyers who are not afraid to be aggressive when it comes to fighting your medical malpractice claim. Call our office now to set up your appointment.
