Determined Missouri Attorneys Litigate Medical Malpractice Suits

Eureka law firm works to hold negligent healthcare workers accountable

Medical malpractice occurs when patients are harmed because doctors, hospitals or other medical providers deviate from accepted standards of care. At Connon & Tolin in Eureka, we have a long track record of obtaining substantial verdicts and settlements for the victims of harmful healthcare negligence. Our accomplished Missouri attorneys understand both the legal questions and complex factual issues that often underlie these claims. Most cases require testimony from medical experts and economic evidence to establish the amount of monetary damages resulting from additional healthcare costs, unearned wages, and pain and suffering. No matter what the facts are in your situation, we have the ability and the network of experts to hold the responsible parties accountable and maximize the likelihood of an appropriate outcome.

Knowledgeable advocates take action against substandard medical providers

Our Missouri personal injury lawyers have decades of experience representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice actions arising from various types of negligence, including:

  • Surgical errors — Patients are most vulnerable during surgery while under anesthesia and unaware of what’s taking place in the operating room. When a mistake happens during surgery and you’re harmed as a result of that negligence, we will conduct a complete review to find out who is responsible.
  • Failure to diagnose — One of the most important jobs a doctor has is to correctly identify dangerous physical conditions. Our firm seeks damages for clients who have suffered because a doctor failed to identify a serious condition.
  • Lack of treatment or mistreatment — Medical professionals are required to adhere to certain standards. When these guidelines are not followed, we take action against the responsible parties.
  • Incorrect medication — Incorrect dosages, inappropriate prescriptions and dangerous drug interactions harm many patients. We help people whose healthcare providers are liable for pharmaceutical negligence.

In a free initial consultation, we can explain the legal and factual aspects of your potential case. Unlike the time limits for other injury claims, the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice claim runs two years from the date the injury was discovered, not necessarily the date of the injury itself. Regardless of the discovery date, no suit can be filed more than 10 years after the incident.

Established legal counselors handle claims arising from birth injuries

Problems with medical care during delivery can lead to serious birth injuries such as cerebral palsy and brachial plexus injuries. In some tragic cases, a wrongful death results from negligent treatment. Our attorneys have detailed knowledge of the legal standards for prenatal and neonatal care. Attorney Josh Tolin has worked in this field for more than 20 years and knows how to gather information recorded by fetal heart monitors and other equipment to detect violations that other lawyers miss. In birth injury litigation, we compile a thorough accounting of the long-term hardship that will be faced by children and parents and seek full compensation for the harm that was done.

Proven lawyers assist families seeking justice for a wrongful death

Fatal medical errors are devastating for the loved ones left behind. Nothing can truly replace the person who was lost, but Missouri’s wrongful death law enables family members to obtain financial relief. Our firm represents surviving spouses, descendants and siblings in lawsuits to secure compensation for funeral expenses, medical costs, and wages that the victim would have earned.
