Analyzing data over a ten-year period from 2013 to 2022, the firm found that about 50% of medical malpractice payments in Illinois, almost 1,400 cases, were made because of a failure to correctly execute a medical procedure, the failure to diagnose a disease or condition, improper management of a patient, or a delay in diagnosis.

They also noted that the highest medical malpractice payouts in Illinois ranged from ~$5.2 million to ~$22.5 million with just 23 cases accounting for about $250 million in medical negligence payouts.

The 10 most common types of medical malpractice that resulted in a payment in Illinois include: Improper Performance, Failure to Diagnose, Improper Management, Delay in Diagnosis, Failure to Treat, Failure to Monitor, Failure to Recognize a Complication, Improper Technique, Delay in Treatment, and Wrong or Misdiagnosis.
