Springfield Surgical Error Lawyers
Southwest and Central Missouri Surgery Malpractice Attorneys
When we schedule surgery, or face an emergency surgical procedure, we have no choice but to put our lives in the hands of the surgeon, surgery room nursing staff, anesthesiologists and every member of the hospital team responsible for our care and treatment. From pre-operative tests through post-op treatment, we trust that the medical team has acted within the standard of care and has been properly trained.
Our medical malpractice trial team provides over 150 combined years of litigation practice in the area of surgical errors and hospital negligence. We are proud of our record of helping people stand up and fight against a medical insurance industry that will do everything possible to protect its surgeons and medical professionals from liability.
We Are Not a Medical Malpractice Settlement Mill
We handle serious medical negligence and hospital malpractice cases and do not accept cases unless we have confidence we can help you obtain the significant compensation you are entitled to. To prepare the strongest, clearest case possible to win in court, if trial becomes necessary, we employ two registered nurses on staff, and our lawyers work with many of the most recognized independent medical experts in the region. Our law firm's name has the highest integrity in the region. Judges and opposing lawyers know that our personal injury cases have merit.
Our lawyers have represented clients who have unexpected complications from surgery. For example, Ben Stringer assisted the family of a gentleman who underwent the removal of his gall bladder. In a suit filed by Mr. Stringer, the family claimed complications from the surgery led to multiple health problems that ultimately resulted in the man's death.
Complications that are undiagnosed can lead to permanent damage and irreversible harm. Debbie Dodge represented a woman who is unable to properly prepare a meal because of a doctor's failure to timely treat a nerve injury to her left brachial plexus. While, we cannot bring back her function, we can provide for her future dealing with her disability.
