When Kansas City residents visit a doctor's office or experience a stay in a hospital, they generally trust that they will be cared for by a team of professionals focused on patient safety. However, at times, patient safety gets overlooked when a medical professional is negligent or even reckless regarding their job duties. When a patient is injured or even killed due to medical negligence, the aftermath can be both tragic and bewildering. By securing the proper legal help, though, victims can move forward in holding negligent parties accountable.
The process begins with an initial consultation with a medical malpractice attorney. Experienced trial attorneys Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman offer a free consultation to potential clients throughout Missouri as well as Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma. At the consultation, a medical malpractice attorney can review the facts of one's case and hear the patient describe their experience and its effects. The initial consultation will also lay the foundation for an ongoing relationship between client and attorney.
