Could You Have a Medical Malpractice Case? What to Know

When you believe you have a medical malpractice case, there is so much that you need to know. These cases are never cut and dry, and many times, they can be hard to win. We'd like to take this opportunity to help you so you will know everything you need to know.

Basic Requirements for a Medical Malpractice Case in Missouri

There are certain requirements you have to have before you can file a medical malpractice case in the State of Missouri. They are: 

* Establishing that a doctor-patient relationship has existed.

* Establishing that the doctor was negligent in some way.

* Establishing that because of that negligence, you were injured.

* Establishing that those injuries led to specific damages.

In addition, you also need to make sure you have not exceeded the state's statute of limitations. In Missouri, that means you have only two years to file a claim. After that, it's too late.
