Professional Negligence & Malpractice
Minimizing Your Risk
When we work with certain professionals, we know that there are legal and ethical standards they must adhere to. However, there may be a time when you feel a professional has not lived up to those standards and you have suffered a loss as a result of their actions.

What Is Professional Negligence and Malpractice?
Professionals in certain fields – such as stock brokers, accountants, insurance agents, lawyers and doctors – are required to uphold a standard of care to clients in their profession. Professional negligence and malpractice may occur when they fail to meet that standard of care.
It is important to note that a bad outcome does not necessarily mean that there has been professional negligence. Sometimes we do not get the result we want even though no one has committed professional negligence.
Legal negligence can occur for many reasons. Some common reasons include an attorney missing deadlines, pressuring a client to settle their case, a conflict of interest or pressure to go to trial. I can help you determine whether you have suffered legal negligence.
Medical malpractice cases can cover a wide range of cases, including:
- Birth injuries
- Serious surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Unnecessary surgery
If you or a loved one were injured or died because of medical malpractice, I can help you. As a Kansas City medical malpractice attorney I work with doctors and medical expert witnesses to examine and present your case in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
