Kansas City Medical Malpractice Attorneys
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to an instance where a patient is harmed because their medical team does not provide proper medical care. In any doctor-patient relationship, a doctor is legally responsible for providing appropriate care; when this agreement is breached and an injury results, the patient is entitled to compensation for the incident.
Proving a medical malpractice case involves demonstrating that another competent doctor, in a similar situation, would not have performed in the way your particular doctor did.
You must also be able to directly link your injuries to your care team’s negligence. Doctors may try to use their knowledge and credibility in the medical field to push back against the idea that you would not have suffered if not for their actions. You need someone just as informed and trustworthy on your side.

Types of Medical Malpractice
There are many ways that doctors are nurses do not uphold the standard of level of medical care that they should. From diagnosing the wrong disease to making a surgical mistake, to misreading a chart, any error made can be life-changing or even fatal.
Some of the most common medical malpractice mistakes include:
- Emergency room errors
- Postoperative care mistakes
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Prescription mistakes
When vulnerable patients are involved, any mistake can be devastating. From the additional care you must receive to treat your medical injuries to the physical and emotional toll of suffering at your doctor’s hands, we understand the stress and hardship you are facing. DiPasquale Moore places your needs first, letting you recover on your health while we fight for you.
Why File a Malpractice Claim?
After a serious medical error, some patients are naturally skeptical of receiving additional care. However, you deserve to be at your full health. Filing a medical malpractice claim can give you the financial means to access treatment with a professional who is highly trusted and well-reviewed.
Over the course of your suit, we can also help you find answers. Most medical professionals, when they are guilty of malpractice, will take action to hide the extent of their mistakes. When you file a claim, you and your lawyer can demand answers. If necessary, we can even bring in medical consultants to help you understand what happened and why.
The effects of a medical malpractice claim may go beyond you. When a caregiver’s performance is called into question, that individual may face heightened scrutiny from the board that oversees them. They may have their license suspended or revoked. If it’s determined facility-wide practices contributed to the malpractice, a hospital may overhaul its systems, so they are safer. These changes can prevent countless future patients from facing the same struggles you have.
Our Attorneys Can Stand By Your Side
Malpractice lawsuits are subject to a statute of limitations, meaning you must file within two years of the date of the injury (if the injury is not immediately apparent, you will have two years after its discovery). Therefore, if you are considering a claim, we advise you talk to a lawyer as soon as you are able. Making these decisions takes time—and we want to ensure you do not lose your chance to secure compensation because of a procedural requirement.
If you’re ready to explore your options, DiPasquale Moore can help. Our medical malpractice lawyers bring over 100 years of combined experience to each case. We have a thorough understanding of the issues that arise in medical malpractice cases, and a network of medical professionals who can provide expertise and, if necessary, testimony.
After an injury caused by medical malpractice, you deserve answers—and justice. Reach out to our team to learn how we can help you find both.
At DiPasquale Moore, we believe you should be able to trust medical professionals to take care of you when you are sick or injured. Doctors all swear to maintain the highest level of professionalism when they take the Hippocratic Oath. Unfortunately, not all medical professionals live up to the standards of their field. When they act negligently, they may injure patients or even cause wrongful deaths.
We hold negligent medical professionals accountable for their errors. Call our Kansas City office today at (888) 743-1030 for a free consultation with one of our medical malpractice lawyers.
