Medical Malpractice Attorney in Kansas City, Missouri
When we go to see a doctor, we trust them to do what is best for us, especially when our lives depend on it. However, doctors sometimes make mistakes, and those mistakes can have tragic, life-altering consequences.
Medical malpractice cases are among the most difficult to prove.

At Burgess Law Firm, we have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to provide our clients with quality representation against what is sure to be a vigorous defense.
