When a doctor or other health care professional causes injury rather than cures it, you have the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit if there has been a deviation—either an act or failure to act — from established medical procedure. That injury can happen under a variety of circumstances, such as doctor negligence, surgeon error, or the failure to diagnose cancer. At The Law Offices of Stephen R. Bough, we are experienced medical malpractice attorneys who can help you recover when you are the victim of malpractice.
Experienced Jackson County Medical Malpractice Attorneys
The attorneys at The Law Offices of Stephen R. Bough have an impressive track record of awards and medical malpractice verdicts, including many in six figures. We have handled many different types of medical malpractice claims, including:
- Surgical error cases: For example, sponges left in the body or pierced arteries.
- Failure to Diagnose: Doctors have a duty to determine the sickness or illness, when they fail to properly diagnose a patient, that may be medical malpractice.
- Punitive damages: While even good doctors make mistakes, sometimes they are negligent and punitive damages are necessary to hold them accountable. We are one of the few firms to have won punitive damages in a medical malpractice case in Missouri.
- Hospital and Institutional Malpractice: When a hospital hires unqualified or under-qualified professionals, they must be held accountable.
Our attorneys are effective in using demonstrative exhibits and expert witnesses to win our cases.
