Helping Victims Of Medical Mistakes In Kansas City
Medical malpractice can take many forms, but all of them can have traumatic, lifelong consequences.
In instances of malpractice, a doctor or other medical professional fails to act properly and makes a mistake that should not have been made. Proving this can be quite difficult, but doing so is vital to receiving proper future treatment and making sure the doctor responsible pays for your pain and suffering.
At Norton & Spencer, P.C., we will discuss your situation, talk about your options and make sure you are on the right path for medical and financial recovery. Our firm is widely known throughout Missouri in the field of medical malpractice litigation, and we can help you secure the results you need.
What Type Of Medical Negligence Did You Suffer?
Our trial attorneys are ready to take their experience in some of the state’s highest stakes and precedent-setting cases to help you if you have suffered any type of medical malpractice, including:
- Disfigurement and/or loss of appendage/organ
- Delay or misdiagnosis of disease, illness, or injury
- Emergency room error
- Birth injury
- Spine and brain injury
- Failure to gain informed patient consent prior to operation or procedure
- Misuse of prescription drugs, a medical device, or an implant
- Surgical or anesthesia-related mishap during a procedure
- Sponge or other instruments left in your body
- Misdiagnosis of cancer
- Laboratory error
- Wrong-sided surgery
- Nerve damage/paralysis
- Failure to prevent blood clot/stroke

Proving medical malpractice in a civil lawsuit is difficult. In order to establish negligence on the part of the medical professional, you must prove that another doctor, acting reasonably, would not have made the same mistake.
Our medical malpractice lawyers know what it takes to prove these claims. We gather medical journals or research, information on prescription drugs and tests as well as testimony from other doctors regarding how a procedure should be handled. We walk you through every step of your case and fight tirelessly for the results you deserve.
Missouri Caps On Recovery Amounts
It is important to note that in Missouri there are caps on medical malpractice cases, including the noneconomic damage cap. If you have been injured, it is important to act decisively to begin building a case, so we encourage you to reach out as soon as possible.
It can also be helpful to realize that many doctors have been sued multiple times, but juries cannot be made aware of this information in court. We are here to do everything we can to work toward serious accountability.
