Common Causes of Malpractice | St. Louis Medical Malpractice Lawyer

In our experience litigating, trying and winning malpractice cases in St. Louis, our medical malpractice lawyer team has found that medical errors are often caused by the following:

  • Burnout. Studies by the Mayo Clinic report that in any given year, roughly half of physicians suffer from burnout, making them twice as likely to commit a medical error. Nurses who work more than 12 and a half consecutive hours are up to three times more likely to make a mistake.
  • Procedural Errors. Hospitals have exhaustive protocols to ensure that patients receive the care they need. Intake mistakes, failure to get a complete medical history or failure to keep complete and accurate medical records can lead to medication errors, operating on the wrong body part or otherwise not giving a patient proper treatment.
  • Using Outdated Equipment or Procedures. Doctors are required to keep up-to-date on new best practices in their field, and hospitals need to make sure their equipment is functioning properly. Failing to do so could lead to diagnosis errors and a type of treatment unnecessarily dangerous.

Proper medical treatment is often a case of life or death, and there is no excuse for you not receiving the standard of care that hospitals, doctors and nurses owe you. If a St. Louis healthcare provider was negligent and caused you or a loved one injuries, call a Burger Law medical malpractice lawyer now at (314) 500-HURT.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims in Missouri? | St. Louis Malpractice Lawyer

If you or a loved one was hurt by a St. Louis doctor's negligence, it is imperative to reach out to a medical malpractice lawyer immediately. While most personal injury cases have a statute of limitation of five years in Missouri, medical malpractice claims only have a time limit of two years, pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.105.

  1. If a foreign object was left inside of you after surgery, you have two years from the date you discovered the object, or should have discovered the object.
  2. If a doctor failed to inform you of test results, you have two years from the date you discovered or should have discovered that you were not informed. This does not include failure to inform of negligent or incorrect test results.
  3. If you or your loved one was a minor at the time of the malpractice, you have until their 20th birthday.
