Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases are cases involving the negligence of a doctor or other health care provider (including hospitals or hospital staff).

When a healthcare provider’s care is not within the "standard of care" (basically "up to par" with other professionals in his or her field) it can result in serious injury, and, sadly, often, death. Unfortunately, a large number of individuals are injured or die as a result of medical malpractice each year in the United States.

These are serious and complex cases that require the attention of an attorney experienced in handling such cases, such as The Law Offices of Mark Dean. Managing Attorney Mark Dean formerly served as defense counsel for doctors and hospitals throughout Missouri and Illinois, but now focuses his practices on representing injured parties who have been hurt as a result of someone else's negligence.

He has the proven knowledge and expertise to successfully handle your medical malpractice case in Missouri or Illinois.

Medical malpractice cases are often difficult to identify and assess correctly. It is imperative, if you or loved one have been injured or died as a result of possible medical malpractice, to contact an attorney experienced in handling medical malpractice cases. Medical malpractice cases can arise under the following circumstances:

  • A medical care provider does not meet his or her "standard of care"
  • When a medical care provider, often hospital staff, administers improper or overdoses of medication, or has equipment failure
  • A medical care provider fails to properly or timely diagnose or treat a medical condition
  • A medical care provider fails to perform surgery properly
