Medical Malpractice


Medical malpractice is an act or omission by a health care provider which deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury to the patient or substantial loss of income. Simply put, medical malpractice is professional negligence (by a healthcare provider) that causes an injury. With decades of experience, the Accident Recovery Team works tirelessly on behalf of Kansans who’ve fallen victim to medical malpractice. You deserve a fair settlement.

Mistakes happen in medicine all the time. A common misconception that many people believe is that once a health care provider’s consent form is signed, nothing can be done if something goes wrong. That’s just not true. Just because you sign a consent form when treatment is received does not give the health care provider the right to commit malpractice or excuse them from negligence. Even though you or someone you know accepts the stated risks and complications that may arise from a procedure or treatment doesn't relieve any medical provider from their health care responsibilities. All health care providers are required to provide a standard of care associated with your medical treatment or health care. These include Emergency Room doctors, Attending Physicians, Psychiatrists, Dentists, and any other health care providers.

Our experience in medical malpractice spans nearly every type of injury and illness across nearly every part of the body. Whether caused by negligence or accidental error, healthcare professionals are often the ones responsible.

Committed to strong, competent and compassionate representation, the Accident Recovery Team puts clients on level ground with big companies and legal departments working against your claim. When medical malpractice happens, the attorneys at the Accident Recovery Team fight for injured clients.

Experience in Complex Cases

The Accident Recovery Team understands that medical malpractice and hospital negligence can create severe and permanent consequences and, unfortunately, even death. Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. The frequency and magnitude of avoidable adverse events was not well known until the 1990's. It was around that time that reports in several countries revealed a staggering number of patient injuries and deaths each year. Unfortunately, patient safety is a relatively recent initiative in healthcare. Now more than ever there is an emphasis on the reporting, analysis and prevention of medical error and adverse healthcare events.

Medical malpractice also encompasses abuse and negligence that happens within nursing and rest homes. Nursing home abuse is intentional treatment, mistreatment or non-treatment of a patient by nursing or rest home personnel which results in injury and harm to a patient. The first case type comes from negligence. Nursing home negligence claims arise out of harm caused by someone's carelessness or unintentional conduct. The second type of nursing home malpractice is nursing home abuse claims that stem from someone's intentional disregard for a patient's safety or rights. If you or someone you love has experienced abuse or negligence in a nursing home, the patient deserves retribution.

Surgical mistakes, labor and birth injuries, errors in anesthesia during dental procedures and other harm can cost lives. Complex medical malpractice cases, including brain injuries and prescription complications, are difficult to prove and hard to articulate to a jury. They require a competent network with know-how.
