Did A Medical Provider Contribute To A Serious Injury?
When you go to a doctor or nurse, you expect that they will help you feel better. In some severe cases, though, a medical provider’s negligence can cause a serious illness or injury.
Medical providers such as doctors and nurses and entities such as hospitals owe a duty of care to their patients. If a provider’s deviation from the standard of care contributed to your or your loved one’s injury, then the personal injury law firm of Menees & Menees can represent you in your medical malpractice case. For more than 40 years, our law firm has helped clients in St. Louis County to seek compensation for damages due to medical malpractice.
How Do I Know If I Have A Case?
Proving medical malpractice is very difficult. Medical malpractice cases must have the following factors present:
- The provider owed you or your loved one a duty of care
- The provider breached the expected standard of care
- The breach of the standard of care caused harm
- This harm caused demonstrable damages
Our team of attorneys knows how to piece together your case convincingly. We comb through medical records, insurance records and other documents to prove the above factors and seek the maximum compensation available to you.
Don’t Miss The Deadline For A Lawsuit
Missouri has a strict statute of limitations for medical malpractice suits. In our state, you must file a legal claim within two years of the date of the injury. Missing this deadline means that you forfeit your right to file a lawsuit.
