When healthcare providers deviate from the accepted standards of care, and patients suffer adverse health effects as a result, it may constitute medical malpractice. Unfortunately, several types of medical mistakes commonly occur, causing injury or illness, worsened health condition, or death for patients. 
If a patient believes medical malpractice has occurred, then it is best to start consulting legal representation. Documents a lawyer might require can include medical records, hospital records, labs, and even doctor and nurse notes. These can be used to prove several of the elements of malpractice, which might also be referred to as the four d’s. 
A Personal injury lawsuit is the civil route that an injured victim can take to recover financial compensation from the party responsible for his or her injuries. The burden of proof lies with the victim to prove that the accident was due to the negligence of another party, and that it resulted in injury or death. If this can be proven to the court, then the injured party may be awarded damages. The claim might also be resolved through a settlement prior to trial.

Bicycle Accidents Joliet to Appeal $2 Million Award

Bicycle Accidents and Injuries: Joliet to appeal $2 million award to bicyclist hit by police car.

Poor Cedric Bacon, 57 was struck by a Joliet police car traveling more than 60 mph at an intersection in South Chicago. Bacon suffered severe trauma and several skull fractures. Bacon now lives with his son in Atlanta had to use a wheelchair for more than a year after the bicycle accident and injuries suffered. The jury awarded the money on July 15 after almost a week of trial and court records indicate that Bacon had almost $700,000 in medical bills. Of course, Bacon is also responsible for legal bills and court costs so the award is not exactly a windfall. However, Assistant City Attorney Greg Smith confirmed the city plans to appeal the verdict which means it will be quite awhile before Bacon sees a penny of his award.
