Kansas City Medical Malpractice Lawyers

A successful medical malpractice lawsuit must prove that the plaintiff was injured because the doctor or other health care professional did not use the same reasonable standard of treatment and care that another competent doctor would use in similar circumstances. Medical malpractice lawsuits require a lot of preparation and detailed work with a team of medical experts who will review all the relevant medical records and develop their professional analysis regarding the appropriate standard of treatment and how the doctor in question failed to meet that standard.

If you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice, contact a Kansas City personal injury lawyer at Martin & Wallentine in order to discuss the pertinent details and obtain critical information regarding the legal options available to you.

Medical malpractice lawsuits are sometimes most successful in front of a jury, and the firm's attorneys have years of successful experience as persuasive trial lawyers. Part of being a persuasive trial attorney is recognizing the quality of persuasiveness in other professionals: in medical malpractice cases, the firm's lawyers put a lot of effort into recruiting medical experts who will be effective in telling the client's story to the jury.

Types Of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice arises in a wide variety of situations, including:

  • Misdiagnosis of illness or injury that results in unnecessary suffering or a wrongful death
  • Emergency room errors, where triage or emergency surgery causes additional injury or death
  • Errors during scheduled surgery
  • Nursing home negligence or abuse, where the nursing home doctors or other health care professionals fail to safeguard their elderly patients against falls, malnutrition, bedsores, or other unnecessary injuries or illnesses
