The Top Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Joplin

Joplin, Missouri medical malpractice lawyers who represent clients anywhere, anytime.

The medical malpractice attorneys at Buchanan, Williams, & O’Brien represent clients in Joplin who are injured or killed by the negligence of healthcare providers such as hospitals, doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, dentists, chiropractors, and podiatrists.

When doctors make mistakes, the consequences are often severe and involve serious injuries and even death. Doctors and physicians are required to follow the applicable “standard of care” when treating patients, and when their treatment falls below that standard, they may be liable according to the law.

Many of our clients, especially in malpractice legal cases, want to know what happened to them and why the negligence happened. Often, the knowledge of why an unfortunate event occurred is more helpful to the healing process than anything else, including money. Buchanan, Williams, & O’Brien is committed to not only getting our clients the compensation they deserve but to help them heal from their injuries and give them back their lives, by the law.

Our law firm has the resources and expertise to help you in any type of medical malpractice case.

Our Joplin MO Medical Malpractice Attorney can help.

If you or your loved one suffered an injury due to an error of a doctor or other healthcare provider, and decide to file a claim, beware that the statute of limitations is short. The law says all claims should be filed within two years from the date the error occurred. If you decide to pursue it, it’s best to consult an attorney who specializes in relevant practice areas.

However, prior to filing a claim, a plaintiff has to be able to prove that a healthcare provider’s error and sustained injuries resulted in specific damages. Everyone who has been injured has the right to seek and get financial compensation. These damages can include loss of income, disability or further medical care, as well as pain and suffering. An experienced attorney knows what has to be done for the client to recover the compensation he or she deserves.
