What Constitutes Medical Malpractice in Missouri?

The state of Missouri requires that for every medical malpractice lawsuit,you must prove that a doctor, in performing their duties, failed the prevailing standard of care and this resulted in injury or death.

If you or someone you love has been catastrophically harmed by the negligence of a medical professional, you deserve the chance to seek justice. At Strong Law, P.C., we have been advocating for the rights of wrongfully injured individuals since 1976.

Here are a few reasons why you should call our Springfield medical malpractice attorneys:

What is the Statute Of Limitations On Medical Malpractice in Missouri?

According to Missouri statute 516.105, a claimant has up to two years from the date of their injury to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. In some cases, the statute of limitations may be different; for example, cases involving the negligent or improper implant of a medical device resulting in injury. The laws also make some special exceptions for minor children.

We Have Answers!
  • How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Missouri?
    Every state has a time limit for how long you have to file a personal injury claim called the statute of limitations. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is five years from the date the injury occurred or could have been reasonably discovered. If you fail to file your personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires then the defendant will most certainly file a motion to dismiss the case.
  • What does a personal injury lawyer do?

    Personal injury lawyers are legal experts dedicated to helping those who have been injured in an accident navigate the complex issues on their road to recovery. They specialize in tort law, protecting the rights of victims and ensuring they receive compensation for their suffering.

Joint Liability in Medical Negligence Cases

Under Missouri law, a medical professional may be held liable for damages for contributory or comparative negligence. This means that even if you were partially responsible for your own medical illness or failure to properly treat your condition, a doctor may still have some percentage of comparative negligence and be responsible for some damages.

Your damages would simply be reduced by your own percentage of fault. In some cases, there may be more than one healthcare provider at fault. An example of joint liability might be when your general doctor fails to diagnose your medical condition on time, and a specialist fails to treat the advanced condition properly. Both doctors may be held jointly responsible.

Do I Have a Case?

Wondering if you have a medical malpractice case? There are a number of things that factor into whether or not you have a viable case. Note that just because a doctor has made an error does not necessarily mean that he or she is guilty of malpractice. In order for the error to constitute malpractice, it must have resulted in appreciable harm to the patient.
