What sets BSCR apart in the area of medical professional liability is twofold: We know almost as much about medicine as we do about law; and, from the moment we receive a case, we proceed as if our client will be going to trial. If the client decides otherwise, they will have the benefit of our copious research and fact-finding in order to negotiate on their terms. But our overarching philosophy is to fight and fight strenuously for those we represent.
That philosophy comes from decades of experience trying cases on behalf of physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers. Our attorneys have dedicated themselves to understanding complex scientific issues that drive each case as well as arranging for top-flight experts to assist in the effective defense of each claim.
Our attorneys are dedicated to studying and understanding, among other scientific issues, Evidenced-based medicine and physiology, extending to issues related to drugs and medical devices. This dedication gives our attorneys nuanced insight to tackle any number of cases involving a wide variety of medical conditions and facts. Only with such focused attention to detail can the legal, standard-of- care questions be brought into focus.
We have medical professionals on staff invaluable in guiding us in our fact investigation and medical research, ensuring that no stone is left unturned and no viable defense is overlooked. We are thorough so whether the defense emphasizes compliance with the professional standard of care or the lack of causation, or both, we are in a position to provide the absolute best defense available under the circumstances of the case.
The result is an excellent record in successfully defending medical malpractice cases in the Kansas City and St. Louis Metropolitan Areas, and throughout Illinois, Kansas and Missouri both at trial and before.
In addition to individual doctors, hospitals, and nurses, BSCR has represented:
- Physician groups
- Pharmacists and pharmacies
- Nursing homes
- Allied health professionals
Our attorneys also represent healthcare providers before state regulatory boards and in their relationships with local hospitals and other healthcare institutions.
