    Do I have a Case?

    The key to medical malpractice is the standard of care. If you can prove your doctor or physician didn’t follow or violated the standard of care for your medical issue, there is a good chance you have a good medical malpractice claim.

    Your doctor making a mistake is not in and of itself enough for a claim. You need to be able to show the mistake caused you damage or further harm before you can file a suit against them. Examples of strong cases include amputation of the wrong body part, brain damage following an operation, a medical condition or disease that got worse after surgery, or a fatality.

    It must also be shown that the injury is connected to negligence on the part of the physician, nurse, or hospital staff. The most difficult part of the malpractice claim is substantiating this negligence. Typically, you will need at least one expert witness to explain how the mistake caused your injury. This means finding another doctor or medical professional to testify to the existence of negligence.

    Why You Should Hire a St. Louis Malpractice Attorney

    Obviously there is a lot that goes into a medical malpractice suit. They can be complicated and time consuming which is why if you believe you have a case, you should consult with a St. Louis medical malpractice attorney who can go over your situation and tell you if you have a case or not. Since you only have two years to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires, and it can takes several months for a case to end, the physician or hospital’s insurance company will be in no hurry to speak with you.

    If you have been injured by a physician due to their negligence, you should seek legal advice from Stephens Kelly Law as soon as possible. You can recover damages for your medical bills, lost wages, and emotional distress.
