INJURY LAW NEWS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE S.E. FARRIS LAW FIRM
I’m Spencer Farris and I try personal injury cases. I’ve tried medical malpractice cases and those cases are different than run of the mill injury cases. Here’s why.
DOCTOR DID NOT ACT REASONABLY:
Just because you get a bad result from a healthcare provider doesn’t mean that it is a medical malpractice case. Medical malpractice means that the doctor did not act as a reasonable physician would have. It doesn’t mean the doctor has to be perfect.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS:
Doctors get special protections in Missouri. If you have a medical malpractice case the statute of limitations, or time to sue is shorter for those cases than if you were hit by a drunk driver.
EXPERT PHYSICIAN SUPPORTS YOUR CLAIMS:
Event before you can file a medical malpractice case you have to have an expert physician sign an affidavit and be willing to testify that the act of the doctor that hurt you was in fact malpractice. Remember that not all mistakes are malpractice. Not all injuries caused by a doctor are malpractice and you have to have an expert who is testifies and is willing to sign an affidavit even before you get in the courthouse doors.
We consult with expert doctors and nurses before we ever file a malpractice case and to aid us throughout the case to aid us in helping represent our client. If you think you have been the victim of medical malpractice please call me at the number on your screen or the internet without any cost or obligation. Remember that most situations are not
