Medical professionals are required to provide their patients with exceptional services and a reasonable standard of care. When hospitals and health clinics are understaffed, exhausted and overworked medical staffers are forced to cycle through their patients as quickly as possible. Consequently, these doctors, surgeons, and nurses are incapable of providing each patient with the level of attention and care their situations warrant. This can lead to devastating medical complications and otherwise preventable fatalities.
The physical and psychological repercussions of a medical malpractice injury can have a lasting impact on your future.

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional’s negligent actions (or inactions) cause injury to a patient. Per the statute of limitations in Missouri, a plaintiff has 2 years to file a claim and seek reparations for an injury. If you pass the statute of limitations, the court may refuse to hear your case. However, there are few exceptions, such as the discovery rule, so it’s important to discuss your specific situation with an attorney before taking legal action.
