Medical Malpractice

The practice of medicine is highly regarded in our country. Medical professionals have a great responsibility in our community and are an integral component of our lives. Most of us have friends or neighbors who work in the medical field. However, both our local doctors and the big Missouri hospitals have a duty to practice medicine to a particular standard of care. The breach of that duty is commonly referred to as “negligence.” This duty is not optional and it exists to protect us all. Medical malpractice occurs when the treatment you receive from your doctor is negligent and you are hurt as a result.

Claims for medical malpractice include both the decisions that were made and those which were not. They range from hospital errors during a complicated surgery to your primary physician’s decision to place you on a particular medication. Often, these mistakes were preventable.

St. Louis malpractice attorney Anthony Pepe understands there are crucial small details that determine if your injuries are a result of medical negligence. A skilled investigation of the facts is the key to uncovering these details and getting you informed. Anthony Pepe advances the expenses of this investigation for you. You only repay if compensation is collected for your injuries.

A claim for medical negligence should only be handled by a Missouri medical malpractice attorney who understands the legal medical issues and that the pain associated with losing a parent, sibling or a child cannot ever be compensated. In many cases, the pain is too great to bear, especially when a child has been born with a birth defect or died during delivery. Parents avoid asking questions to doctors because they do not want to accept what has happened. Anthony Pepe will ask those questions and get you the information you need to receive proper compensation, which includes the cost of medical bills, lost income, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

There are realistic expectations we all have when receiving medical treatment. We should not expect miracles, but we must demand that our healthcare is not jeopardized due to negligence. Missouri doctors and health care providers have a duty to practice medicine in a particular manner. I know some of you reading this might feel like you do not deserve to file a medical negligence claim, perhaps because you received medical treatment at a free clinic or you went to your local Emergency Room and never paid the bill or because you are poor and feel you got what you deserved. I am here to tell you that is wrong. You are entitled to the same standard of care as everyone else.
