Doctors, like many other professionals, are given the benefit of the doubt. At Foster Wallace, our lawyers have doctors in their own families. However, even the best of people can make serious mistakes. When medical negligence occurs, doctors should be held accountable for the damages that result.
Mistakes and Injuries That May Qualify as Medical Malpractice
Potential Kansas City medical malpractice lawsuits may involve serious errors during surgery, failure to warn a patient of certain risks or side effects, medication errors, or misreading particular charts that could lead to serious complications or mistakes.
If you believe the treatment from your physician led to serious injuries, you may have a potential medical malpractice claim. You must move fast, however. In both Kansas and Missouri, the statute of limitations in medical malpractice cases is generally two years, which is less than most other causes of action. There are certain exceptions to this two-year statute of limitations depending on when you learned that medical malpractice occurred.
