Rollover accidents in Missouri cause injuries and deaths of many

Missouri residents may have reason to be concerned about the number of young adults who lose their lives or suffer life-changing injuries in car accidents. It is not uncommon for rollover accidents to occur when a driver loses control and leaves the roadway. Unfortunately, in many of these single-vehicle accidents, the passengers suffer the worst consequences.

Failure to diagnose leads to $5.6 million award to cancer patient

Missouri residents who experience medical problems that are unfamiliar to them may experience high levels of anxiety. Most people rely on medical professionals to accurately diagnose and treat their conditions. Failure to diagnose dreaded diseases such as cancer may lead to devastating results. Modern medical technology allows for accurate diagnoses, yet many cases of failure to diagnose continue to occur.

Cosmetic surgery errors may prove difficult to prove in a claim

While a Missouri cosmetic surgery patient may be unsatisfied with the ultimate results of a procedure, he or she will first have to prove that other professionals in this field would have produced better results. For a medical malpractice claim against a cosmetic surgeon to be viable, negligence has to be proved. If, for example, a problem such as an abnormal bone structure that could not have been anticipated becomes apparent during surgery, the surgeon has to cope with the situation in the best way possible. If chances are that other surgeons would also have been unaware of the problem prior to surgery, it may not be seen as negligent, and the result may not constitute cosmetic surgery errors.

1 of Missouri's head-on collisions claims life of 1, injures 2

Any vehicle accident puts drivers and passengers at risk of serious injury and possibly even death. With head-on accidents, the risk of injury is increased because of the fact that the speed from both involved cars are combined. Recently, a 65-year-old man died after being involved in one of Missouri's recent head-on collisions.

Failure to diagnose properly and timely leads to man's death

When a Missouri individual is feeling ill, it can be a very worrisome time. It gets worse when a person visits the doctor and undergoes several tests only to be sent home with no answers. This is what happened to a man in another state whose family has stated that a physician's failure to diagnose led to his death. Now, the physician and hospital are both facing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Doctor errors capped by malpractice caps in Missouri House bill

In 2012 the Supreme Court of Missouri declared the state's $350,000 cap of jury awards for "pain and suffering" in medical malpractice cases unconstitutional, saying the law violates a patient's right to a jury trial. The Court held that constitutionally only juries can declare the amount of damages. After that decision, there have been no caps on damages awards in medical malpractice cases in Missouri. Such awards compensate for doctor errors, and negligence by hospitals and other healthcare workers.
