What sets Baker Sterchi apart in the area of medical professional liability is twofold: we are well-versed in medical issues and terminology; and from the moment we become involved in a case, we proceed as if our client will be going to trial. If the client decides otherwise, our investigation and expert witness retention efforts will put them in the best possible position to negotiate on their terms. But our overarching philosophy is to vigorously defend those we represent from beginning to end.
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, evidence-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 a lack of medical causation, or both, we are in a position to provide the best defense available under the circumstances of the case.
The result is an excellent record of successfully defending medical malpractice cases in the Kansas City and St. Louis Metropolitan areas, and throughout Illinois, Kansas and Missouri.
