Medical Malpractice and Tort Reform in Missouri and Illinois

We have to be very careful when handling possible medical malpratice cases. We do not want to lead any client down a path that’s not accurate or make any improper claim against a doctor. You know, when we file a medical malpractice claim in Missouri and Illinois, Missouri and Illinois have tort reform. They’ve had it for a long time. People say, “What about tort reform?” Well, we’ve had it for a long time. And in both states, we have to have a letter from a doctor or a medical provider in the same area of practice within the last five years of practicing that has a written opinion that that doctor committed malpractice and that malpractice caused the damages in the client that we’re asserting.
