Under Minnesota Medical Malpractice Law, medical malpractice occurs when medical negligence causes unnecessary injury or death to the patient.
Medical malpractice often results in very serious injuries and/or death. Recent studies show that over 90,000 deaths happen every year in hospitals as a result of medical negligence. (That is twice as many as die in car accidents!!!)
Any experienced medical malpractice attorney in Minneapolis, MN knows that the successful prosecution of a medical malpractice claim requires a Minnesota medical malpractice lawyer who has a strong medical knowledge base in addition to a strong legal background.
The Schmidt Law Firm has 30 years of experience in handling medical negligence claims, with successful results against Mayo Clinic, major drug companies and major medical appliance companies with many cases which have produced results over $1 million. (See our Minnesota product liability page for information about defective medical products and defective and dangerous drugs and defective pharmaceuticals.)
Under Minnesota Medical Malpractice Law, medical negligence is defined as the improper treatment of a medical patient which is below the standard of care used by health care providers under similar circumstances. Accordingly, to establish a winning medical negligence claim, the medical malpractice attorney in Minneapolis, MN must prove that a doctor or other health care provider has done something that amounts to a deviation from standard care and, through negligence or error, causes injury or death. This is a difficulty factor that is much greater than that which confronts Minnesota personal injury lawyers in other cases.
