Fighting for Justice and Malpractice Victims' Rights Since 1984
In recent years, insurance company lobbyists have mounted an unprecedented attack on the American judicial system through so-called "tort reform." Tort reform has had its biggest impact on medical malpractice cases. Today, many states have passed legislation that limits the amount of money a person can obtain in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Tort reform laws also drive up litigation expenses by placing strict expert witness requirements and restrictive timelines on plaintiffs attorneys.
While many other personal injury litigation firms avoid medical malpractice suits because of their complexity and the costs of pursuing them, our Kansas City medical malpractice lawyers continue to take on important cases and powerful opponents, including the largest insurance companies and hospitals — and we continue to win results for our clients.
