Experienced medical malpractice attorney’s in St.Louis
When we take your medical malpractice case, we see to it that the medical facilities and staff responsible for your pain and injury are held accountable. We make sure our clients and their families receive compensation to make their injuries or loss more bearable.
Medical malpractice cases are often won or lost over the content and interpretation of the medical records. Setting ourselves apart from other firms, we retain a legal nurse consultant on staff. She is a registered nurse with 30 years of experience working with patients and doctors. That means that she is fluent in the language of the medical profession, and knows how to read between the lines of medical records, frequently pointing out subtle but important legal implications to our attorneys. Because of her professional insights, we’re able to obtain the highest settlements possible in:
- Medical malpractice cases
- Nursing home malpractice cases
- Catastrophic injury cases.
Additionally, she also ensures we care for more than just our clients’ financial concerns. She makes sure they have a long-range care plan to serve them years after the case is closed.
Some of cases the typical cases we and our legal nurse consultant have worked lately in Missouri and Southern Illinois are:
- Failure to manage blood loss during surgery
- Failure to manage high blood pressure during pregnancy
- Drug overdose in the hospital, resulting in patient’s death
- Prescription of the wrong drug in the hospital, resulting in injury
- Birth injuries
- Missed diagnoses, such as cancer and heart disease
If you think you may have been the victim of medical malpractice, it is important to consult an attorney. Doctor’s groups have successfully pushed through laws making pursuit of your rights difficult, especially in Missouri and Southern Illinois. Navigating the laws that surround these cases and getting everything filed in the time required is daunting. You need a skilled and dedicated legal team of attorneys and medical experts on your side.
