St. Louis Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Representing Patients in Missouri & Across the Nation

Physicians, nurses, and all other medical providers must follow the prevailing standard of care, which requires actions or inactions to align with what competent medical professionals would do under similar circumstances. However, healthcare providers sometimes make preventable mistakes resulting in injury to their patients. Diseases are misdiagnosed, lab results are misread, surgeries or other procedures go poorly, and patients are neglected, their complaints ignored. If you have found yourself in this situation, you may be a victim of medical malpractice and should contact an attorney immediately to discuss your legal rights. You may be owed compensation.

Elements of a Medical Malpractice Case

Just because a patient did not receive the outcome they wanted from their medical treatment does not automatically mean that their physician committed medical malpractice. In order for a medical negligence lawsuit to be successful, the plaintiff must be able to prove the following four elements: duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages.

  • Duty: The doctor or other medical professional had a doctor-patient relationship with the plaintiff and owed him or her a legal duty of care.
  • Breach of duty: The doctor failed to meet this standard duty of care.
  • Causation: The doctor’s breach of duty was the reason that the patient suffered harm.
  • Damages: As a result of all of the above elements, the doctor’s misconduct resulted in economic and non-economic damages (including but not limited to additional medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering).

Medical experts are often the key to validating many of the required elements in a medical malpractice case. Medical procedures, diagnoses, and courses of treatment are complex and if the mistakes are not entirely obvious, testimony of an expert witness is also necessary.
