A Missouri medical patient has the right to reasonably assume that doctors and nurses will conduct themselves according to the highest level of safety standards when treating him or her during a physical examination, surgery or other form of medical care. Doctor errors sometimes cause injury or illness for patients who depended on them for appropriate treatment. When medical staff members fail to meet their obligation to protect patient safety, the outcome can be disastrous for those involved.
Some medical patients have become victims of negligence or malpractice when visiting an emergency room for treatment. Others have become ill or have been injured during a doctor’s examination or during an elected or needed surgery. Regardless of the reason for your medical treatment, if you have suffered due to a malpractice issue, you are protected by law with the right to file a legal claim against the at-fault party in court.
