Legal Representation in Medical Malpractice Claims at the Lake of the Ozarks

Our medical malpractice lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks help those who have endured a significant health issue that was caused by the negligence of a health care professional. No one deserves to go through this type of unfortunate situation. If you or someone you know has, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. In a medical malpractice claim, you may be owed compensation for your medical issue. Here are the caps on the non-economic damages that may be recovered in a medical malpractice claim.


According to the Missouri Department of Insurance, you may only receive up to a certain amount of money in non-economic damages in a medical malpractice claim. When we refer to “non-economic damages,” we are referring to damages caused by pain and suffering. There are 2 different types of injuries when it comes to medical malpractice claims, “catastrophic” and “non catastrophic”. Section 538.205 RSMo. defines a catastrophic injury as an injury resulting in quadriplegia, paraplegia, the loss of two or more limbs, significant and permanent cognitive impairment, irreversible failure of a major organ, or significant loss of vision.

While non-economic damages are capped in the state of Missouri, economic damages are not. Economic damages can include things such as medical costs or loss of income while injured. For example, if you were unable to work due to a medication error and you lost a considerable amount of income, you may be able to get that money recovered with the help of a Camden County medical malpractice lawyer. If you are suffering due to a surgical error, misdiagnosis, or any other act of medical malpractice, you shouldn’t go through it alone. We are here to help. We have the experience and capability to guide you through this.
