Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

I have heard that Kansas City medical malpractice claims cause health care costs to rise. I think health care costs are already too high, and I don’t want to contribute to them going any higher. However, I’ve been hurt. Should I file a medical malpractice case?

Our Kansas City medical malpractice lawyers appreciate your concern about the high cost of health care, even in the face of a personal medical malpractice injury. However, we want you to know that there may be little evidence to support the claim that medical malpractice is a significant reason for the currently high costs of health care.


A consumer group called Public Citizen recently found that 2011 medical malpractice payments were at a record low after falling for eight consecutive years. Yet, the costs of health care continue to rise.


As a patient who was injured by a medical error, you have the right to protect yourself and your family. You have the right to seek compensation for your medical expenses, out-of-pocket costs, lost income, pain, suffering and other damages. It is not your responsibility to lower health care costs, nor is there any evidence that failing to file a medical malpractice lawsuit would lower the cost of medical care.


For more information about how to protect your rights after a medical mistake, please contact our experienced Kansas City medical malpractice attorneys today at (816) 471- 5111 or (888) 348-2616. We also invite you to learn more about the medical malpractice claim process by downloading our free book, The Truth About Medical Malpractice Claims.
