You should remember that while you are in charge of your medical treatment, you should never ignore a doctor’s advice or fail to show up for scheduled appointments. You were injured, and you deserve compensation. As such, it will make any argument and use any tactic to diminish your recovery, or to deny you any recovery at all. Just be careful and you’ll be safe, right?Read More
Pursue a Medical malpractice Case
Medical malpractice happens when medical treatment doesn’t follow quality standards. If you are a victim of medical malpractice it is likely that you won’t even know until you start to develop symptoms.
This can happen long after the medical procedure took place. Therefore, you will need help from a lawyer with extensive experience in the medical malpractice field.
Getting the help of a medical malpractice lawyer could be the difference between getting your expenses covered or walking empty handed.
This is a very complex process that involves many legal procedures. Also, you have a limit of time to prove that you were a victim of a careless doctor. Medical malpractice follows the statute of limitations; this establishes a period in which you can make the claim.

Jared A. Rose
I grew up on a farm in central Kansas and graduated from Kansas State and NYU School of Law. I live in Kansas City, Missouri, and have a license to practice law in both Kansas and Missouri.I represent people whove been injured by someone else or by a defective product. I also represent people in business disputes and people who have been defrauded by their investment advisors.Most people who have been harmed need a lot of help navigating the legal system. Youre not just up against the person who harmed you, youre also up against their insurance company and lawyers. The insurance companys goal is to pay you as little as possible.I used to represent big companies at a big Kansas City law firm, but I like representing individual people a whole lot more. Starting my own firm to do this kind of work was the best decision I ever made.If you have been harmed and someone else is at fault, please give me a call, and I can talk with you about your case for free. In injury cases, I do not take any payment upfront, and I do not get paid unless you receive a settlement or a court judgment. In business disputes and investor fraud cases, I also usually work on a contingency fee, but some clients choose to pay me at an hourly rate. Initial consultations are always free.Because I work on both injury cases and on financial fraud cases, I have worked on a wide variety of cases over the years. I have handled many kinds of injury cases involving motor vehicles, including car crashes, semi-trailer wrecks, motorcycle wrecks, and wrecks caused by drunk drivers. I have handled many different kinds of fall cases, including falls from balconies, falls on ice, falls on liquid spills, and falls in potholes and other dangerous surfaces. And I have handled many kinds of cases involving defective products, including medical devices, home appliances, and chemical products. I have also represented many clients who have been defrauded, cheated, and lied to by their broker or investment advisor. Most of those cases have to be filed in arbitration, because there is usually an arbitration provision in your contract with your investment advisor. The arbitration process is a little different than court. You will need someone that understands that process. I am certified as a FINRA arbitrator, which means I can serve on the arbitration panels that judge other investor fraud cases, in addition to being able to file cases for my own clients. If your broker or investment advisor did you wrong, please give me a call to discuss your case.
