Medical Malpractice

Welcome to the Medical Malpractice Webpage for The Law Office of Paul Hogan, LLC. We provide information to the victims and families whose lives have been harmed by medical mistakes. If you have been injured, misdiagnosed, suffered physical or mental distress, or have lost a loved one because of a health care provider's failure to provide the expected standard of care, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Working closely with each client, we analyze their case to determine whether negotiation of a settlement or a trial is in their best interests. Our attorneys are committed to ensuring that our clients' who have been victimized by medical malpractice receive the compensation to which they are entitled. At The Law Office of Paul Hogan, LLC we believe that achieving justice on behalf of the victims of personal injury is the highest and best expression of the art of practicing law.

While the health care system offers life and hope to millions of Americans, many patients are injured or die because of medical mistakes, ignorance, negligence and inexperience. An estimated 98,000 people die each year as a result of medical error in hospitals. Even more disturbing than the significant number of hospital mistakes is that this estimate excludes errors made in physicians' offices, emergency care centers, nursing homes and other healthcare environments. By law, healthcare professionals are required to give a standard of care that is ordinary or normal. When a physician is found to be negligent, they have failed to use the same degree of skill and learning, under the same or similar circumstances, as used by other members of the medical profession. Malpractice takes many forms and a few of the leading types of medical malpractice claims include:

  • Failure or errors in timely diagnosis,
  • Failure to order appropriate treatment,
  • Failure to order necessary tests and proper medication,
  • Failure to consult with specialists,
  • Mistakes in surgical procedures,
  • Wrongful death,
  • Birth defects or injuries,
  • Hospital, physician, and nursing negligence, and
  • Nursing home injuries and elder abuse.

Medical malpractice claims require that the negligent action be fully documented and proven within specific guidelines. Only a qualified personal injury attorney who knows Kansas law and is experienced in medical malpractice claims can prepare a case demonstrating that your injury was the result of medical negligence. If negligence is proven, damages are awarded. Damages are intended to help you return to as near the condition you were in prior to your injury. There are several forms of damages that you may recover in a medical malpractice award including; economic (for lost wages or medical expenses), non-economic (for pain and suffering), or punitive (to punish reckless behavior) damages. You may also receive compensation for future medical expenses and loss of future earnings. Punitive damages occur only in rare cases when it is proved that the medical practitioner had malicious intent.

The legal professionals at The Law Office of Paul Hogan, LLC have the credentials in medical malpractice cases to help ensure that you receive fair compensation for your losses. While we represent your best interests to insurance companies and the justice system, you can work on recovering and planning your future. Under the Statute of Limitations, there is a limited time window in which to file a claim. Do not risk losing your right to fair compensation and justice. Please feel free to contact us at our office at (316) 303-1411, toll free at (866) 303-1411 or via our online form.

If you are hesitant to pursue your case because you are concerned that litigation contributes to rising medical costs, consider this: according to the director of insurance for the Consumer Federation of America, insurance companies are raising rates due to poor returns on their investments, not because of litigation and the justice system.
