The problem is not too many medical malpractice lawsuits against doctors and hospitals but rather too much medical malpractice. Most victims never call a lawyer. Our St. Louis injury law firm receives phone calls every week where it is clear that the doctor or hospital made mistakes. We only take the case if there is serious injury or death. There are a huge majority of cases where the damages aren’t bad enough to justify the high cost of a lawsuit. What makes the cost of a medical practice lawsuit so high in Missouri?
Medical Malpractice Cases
Doctors have the shortest statute of limitations (2 years in most cases). It is the only type of lawsuit where you must have another doctor verify fault before filing a suit. Malpractice cases are very difficult and very expensive cases. The St. Louis medical malpractice attorneys at Wolfgram & Associates have a very good track record of success in handling malpractice cases. We are on the front lines, and I can tell you from experience, there is a lot more malpractice than the public is aware of.
