Medical Malpractice

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured or die as the result of preventable medical errors.  While not every unfavorable outcome following medical treatment is a case of medical malpractice, healthcare providers owe patients a duty to follow certain standards of care.  Healthcare providers may be held liable for medical malpractice when their conduct falls below the accepted standards of care, and a patient is injured or dies as a result.

Schimmerling Law Offices  is committed to recovering for victims of medical negligence the compensation they deserve.  To prove that a healthcare provider was negligent in a particular case, we work with experts who specialize in each of the relevant fields of medicine.  These experts are essential to the success of any medical malpractice claim since expert testimony is required to establish that the healthcare provider's conduct breached the standard of care, and that the breach caused the patient's injury or death.  Schimmerling  Law Offices, and the attorneys we work with, have considerable experience examining, preparing, and presenting complicated medical evidence.  Every potential avenue of liability is explored in every medical malpractice case we handle.

If you have been injured or a family member has died as the result of a medical mistake or substandard care rendered by a hospital, HMO, doctor, nurse, therapist, pharmacist, nursing home, or any other healthcare provider, you have the right to recover compensation for the damages suffered.  We aggressively pursue healthcare providers who have rendered substandard care to hold them accountable, while providing compassionate, personal and attentive hands-on service, and a sincere commitment to victims of medical malpractice.
