In every medical malpractice action, the most pressing question for the client is often how the case is going to affect the professional’s career and reputation. The uncomfortable truth is that any negligence claim against a healthcare provider can have lasting consequences. Clients need an advocate who fully understands not only the law and science required to successfully defend a malpractice claim, but also the implications for the professional’s continued work in the community. Experience matters where the claim is potentially detrimental to the financial interests of the client, and also personal to the provider’s confidence and well-being.

Brian Burge devotes his practice to exclusively defending the interests of healthcare providers accused of malpractice. He has appeared in courts throughout both Kansas and Missouri, as well as the respective Boards of Healing Arts in each jurisdiction. Over the course of litigating hundreds of matters during his career, that experience is brought to bear on behalf of every client so that the provider can feel a sense of calm even in times of great professional turmoil. A collaborative approach is always followed with the client where ideas are freely exchanged so that the best possible defense strategy can be developed and implemented. Because of the unique nature of medical malpractice claims, proper case preparation is essential. Brian continually strives to have a current understanding of the applicable standard of care and relevant medicine in every case. The goal is to keep the client informed, prepared and comfortable at each stage of the proceedings.
