Illinois Personal Injury Attorneys Launch Website for Medical Malpractice Victims

The goal of Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P. to educate Chicago-area and Illinois residents about the causes of medical malpractice and their rights when injured by physicians and other health care professionals.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 21, 2010

In an effort to educate and assist victims of medical malpractice in Illinois, the personal injury law firm of Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P. C. has launched a resource website that explains the common types of medical mistakes and the steps that should be taken when malpractice occurs.

The website is MedicalMalpractice-Information. com (http://www. medicalmalpractice-information. com/).

“Medical malpractice can and does occur in the United States and, in fact, according to some estimates is one of the country’s leading causes of death,” said Patrick A. Salvi (http://www. salvilaw. com/attorney_bios_salvi. html), a founding partner of Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P. C. “Our website will help those who have suffered a loss or injury get a better idea of what has happened. They'll also learn what their rights are.”

The user-friendly website provides valuable information on several injury topics and what victims can do about them:

 Medical Malpractice – The site defines the legal term “medical malpractice,” and describes the situations that can lead to it, including physician error, hospital negligence, emergency room errors and medication errors.

 Surgical Malpractice – The site educates users about several types of surgical malpractice, from pre-operative malpractice to post-operative malpractice, anesthesia malpractice, surgical complications and organ puncture or perforation.

 Birth Injuries – In addition to a specific detailed section about cerebral palsy, the site explains other common birth injuries, including Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus and shoulder dystocia. The site has several informative "frequently asked questions" about birth injury topics.

 Additional Resources – The website provides news reports about recent medical malpractice cases and their outcomes, an interactive list of links for Illinois hospitals, profiles of several Illinois communities, and links to the Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P. C. law offices and the firm's attorneys.
