Mid Missouri Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Legal Help from an Experienced Attorney if You've Been Injured by Medical or Nursing Malpractice.
Every day we trust medical professionals with our health and our lives. Most of the time, we can have confidence that our doctors and nurses are taking every proper action in our care. Sometimes, however, inattention or negligence cause serious injury, or even death.
This is called "medical malpractice," and it includes actions and errors made by medical professionals, as well as the failure to take action when it was needed. Medical malpractice claims can be brought against any medical professional (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, nursing home staff, anesthesiologists, radiologists) as well as hospitals, and clinics.
Examples of medical malpractice that can lead to serious injury, worsened medical conditions, or premature death include:
- Misdiagnoses, misreading tests, or failure to diagnose a problem
- Failing to read a medical chart or to take a proper medical history, leading to mistreatment
- Failing to provide prompt medical treatment when it was needed (such as making a patient wait too long in an emergency room)
- Failing to order necessary and reasonable tests
- Medication or prescription errors, anesthesiology errors, surgical errors, and emergency room errors
