We all value and trust our doctors, nurses and hospitals any time we get sick or need medical attention. Unfortunately, sometimes even the most careful medical professionals may fail to provide us with the reasonable medical care required and cause a life changing injury or even wrongful death.
In an environment where medical malpractice claims are sometimes called “frivolous” and some people focus more attention on the cost of medical care than the right to adequate compensation for harms and losses caused by needless medical errors, victims of medical malpractice and their families may feel overwhelmed. We can help.

What is Medical Malpractice?
You know something went wrong. You know something did not turn out the way you expected. However, you also know that even though there was an unexpected result, it does not mean it is automatically the fault of the doctor or other medical professional involved.
Medical malpractice occurs when the doctor, nurse or hospital staff fails to provide the patient with reasonable medical care. Proving medical malpractice in court is very difficult because most insurance companies will spend an unlimited amount of time, money and resources defending the medical professionals at trial. The attorneys of Mathys & Schneid Injury Law have the experience you will need to determine whether there was medical malpractice, prove the malpractice at trial, hold the medical professional responsible for the inadequate care and obtain a full and fair recovery for all of your harms and losses.

The Key to Success: Using Medical Experts to Prove Your Case
