Kansas City Medical Malpractice Attorney
It’s a fact. Doctors make mistakes. Those mistakes injure innocent victims after treating with a doctor, hospital or other medical professional for surgery, a test or treatment. The Nail Law Firm helps clients with medical malpractice injuries, having more than 10 years of trial experience bringing negligence cases.
Medical Malpractice And “Never Events”
Among the most severe medical malpractice cases is the category of “Never Events.” These incidents involve conduct so egregious that it should never occur. Tragically, they continue to happen every year. In the medical literature, they are described as “adverse events that are unambiguous (clearly identifiable and measurable), serious (resulting in death or significant disability) and usually preventable.”
Medical Mistakes Have Severe Consequences
Our lawyers understand the seriousness of these incidents, as they not only result in injury or death to our clients, but they typically point to systemic problems with a doctor, clinic or hospital that need to be addressed to prevent other patients from suffering a similar fate such as:
- Serious injuries from medical mistakes
- Medical procedure and surgical errors
- Medication errors
- Hospital, medical facility, hospital staff and clinic errors
Our lawyers know that those injured by medical malpractice often want more than compensation. They want justice and they want changes made in practices and procedures that will help prevent the types of errors that caused their injuries from occurring again and causing other patients to suffer unnecessary harm.
