Kansas City Medical Malpractice Attorney

Injured in a Medical Malpractice Situation?

Medical Malpractice and the Law There are many forms medical malpractice can take, but generally involves the failure of a medical professional to perform their duties up to the professional level expected of them. Malpractice can occur when someone mistreats, incompetently performs or misdiagnoses a medical procedure. A failure from a medical professional can lead to devastating consequences that can affect the rest of a person's life.

If you or a loved one has been affected by what you believe to be medical malpractice, contact the Kansas City medical malpractice attorney at Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott for a free confidential consultation to discuss the merits of your case.

Some of the key factors which can lead to a doctor or facility being accused of malpractice include:

  • Overwork
  • Dispensing incorrect medications
  • Overmedicating
  • Inadequate training
  • Incorrect diagnosis
  • Treating the wrong condition
  • Failure to properly notate a patient's file resulting in an incorrect procedure or incorrect drug

Investigating a medical malpractice claim takes serious resources and possible medical experts to examine the actions and procedures that led to the accusation of malpractice. When facing this type of claim, it is crucial you have a skilled and experienced medical malpractice lawyer in Kansas City to assist you throughout the handling of your case.

Medical Malpractice Liability

Medical malpractice is when a healthcare professional has not performed a standard of care, and there are multiple parties who can be held liable, including:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Physician's assistants
  • Surgeons
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Radiologists
  • Dentists
  • Therapists
  • Midwives
  • Pharmacists
  • Chiropractors
  • Hospitals
  • Nursing Homes

In order to prove liability in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must prove that the injuries you sustained were related to the malpractice.

You must prove the following:

  • There was a professional doctor/patient relationship
  • The medical professional acted negligently or wrongfully
  • An injury was sustained due to the negligent or wrongful act
  • Damages were sustained as a result of the injuries

Being dissatisfied with your treatment is NOT grounds for a medical malpractice claim. However, if you were treated in a way that no other practioner would reasonably recommend, then you likely have grounds for a case. Contact Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott to arrange a free, initial case evaluation and we can help you determine your next best step.
