Franklin County Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Medical Malpractice

When patients go to a hospital, their hope is to get better or improve their health. Often, when you go to a reputed doctor or hospital, that is exactly what happens. You get better. However, there are cases when an error or act of negligence or carelessness on the part of a medical professional can cause a patient serious injury or harm. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical negligence, it would be in your best interests to contact an experienced Missouri medical malpractice lawyer to examine your legal rights and options.

What is Medical Malpractice?

There are many different definitions of medical malpractice. It may involve:

  • An injury or death caused by a doctor deviating from accepted standards of care
  • A doctor’s failure to recognize obvious symptoms of a serious health condition or disease
  • A failure to diagnose cancer by not ordering a test or failing to properly interpret test results
  • A medical professional giving the wrong medication or performing the wrong medical procedure
  • An anesthesiologist administering the wrong amount of anesthetic before or during a surgical procedure
  • A birth injury caused by a doctors failure to recognize potential dangers to the mother or the baby
  • A birth injury caused by mistakes made during the birthing process
  • Injury or wrongful death caused by negligence on the part of a medical professional
  • A surgeon botches the surgery or carelessly leaves equipment or objects inside the patient.

Who May File a Medical Malpractice Claim in Franklin County?

Injured victims may file a medical malpractice claim against a doctor or a hospital. When the victim is a minor, the parents of the victim may file a claim on the child’s behalf. When a victim of medical malpractice is killed, the victim’s family members may pursue damages by filing a Missouri wrongful death claim.

Victims of medical malpractice may pursue financial compensation for all of the losses they have suffered in the incident such as cost of unnecessary surgery or treatment and loss of wages. If the negligence resulted in a disability, additional compensation should be available for loss of the patient’s ability to earn a livelihood. Non-economic damages such as pain or suffering may also be covered as part of a medical malpractice claim. If the act was particularly egregious, a judge or jury may also award punitive damages.
