Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Missouri
Medical errors kill or disable roughly 98,000 Americans every year. Doctors and hospitals are required by law to carry insurance to specifically compensate for malpractice. Types of medical malpractice claims vary considerably. Some examples of medical malpractice claims include improper diagnosis, delayed diagnosis, improper care, negligence in performing surgical procedures, medication errors, failure to obtain the patient's informed consent, and abandonment of the patient. Many medical errors are directly attributable to red-tape inherent in the health care system. However, errors occur when physicians and patients have communication problems, such as when a doctor does not give the patient enough information to make an informed decision.

Medical malpractice victims may be able to recover money to pay for doctor and hospital bills, to replace lost income, to cover future medical expenses, to compensate for pain and suffering. Pain and suffering damages can be awarded to individuals suffering from discomfort, disfigurement, embarrassment, humiliation, and from the loss of the opportunity to experience and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
Before accusing your doctor, start by asking questions. If the answers do not make sense or if you have suspicions, then you should seek another professional's opinion. Ideally, you should consult with a St. Louis medical negligence lawyer. In some cases, a birth injury may go undetected for months or even years. The injury may be due to one or more medical mistakes during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. Parents are often left with the incorrect impression that their child simply has a birth defect, and that it could not have been prevented.
Most parents have no way of knowing what happened to their child and many do not know where to begin to search for answers. For many parents, corrective procedures and other costs associated with the care for a child suffering from a birth defect are overwhelming. We fight to ease that burden by recovering just compensation from those responsible.
