Failure to pursue Illinois medical malapractice lawsuit leds client to file a legal malpractice case

A legal malpractice lawsuit was filed in St. Clair, Illinois recently by a man whose lawyer failed to file his medical malpractice claim within the necessary statute of limitation. The Illinois man was injured by a bullet wound and was treated by the hospital. He was discharged even though he was suffering from a high fever and severe pain at the wound site. A few days later, the man was diagnosed with gangrene and the delay in the diagnosis resulted in injuries to his bones, soft tissues, ligaments, tendons, muscles and blood vessels. The man alleges that his attorney’s negligence caused significant financial damage and the loss of his medical malpractice claim.
