When we visit a doctor or a hospital, we trust medical professionals to quickly and efficiently identify our illness and treat us appropriately. If a doctor or other health care professional makes an error in judgment, it’s not just a small mistake. A misdiagnosis can lead to terrible consequences – blindness, paralysis, nerve damage, and limited, painful movement just to name a few. You might think that medical professionals avoid negligent behavior; however, since 1995, medical malpractice claims of $500,000 or more have doubled and claims of $1 to $2 million have tripled in the state of Georgia. While there is no price tag to be placed on the loss of good health, Jason R. Schultz realizes that the irreversible damage resulting from negligent medical care can lead to a lifetime of lost income, physical suffering, medical complications, and in the worst cases, death. Mr. Schultz cares about the welfare of his clients, and if you have been a victim of medical malpractice, he will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Medical malpractice is defined as the failure of a doctor or other health care professional to properly diagnose an illness and treat that illness with the correct medication or remedy, which leads to additional disease or medical complications. In addition, cases of healthcare provider abuse and neglect (by hospital or nursing home employees) also fall under the umbrella of medical malpractice. The Law Offices of Jason R. Schultz has enough experience with malpractice claims to know what lengths medical insurance companies will go to in order to protect their clients from compensating patients who have been critically injured due to negligence or misdiagnosis, and Mr. Schultz’s expertise allows him to settle those cases. In the event that the claim goes to trial, Jason R. Schultz is prepared to win. His litigation experience has given him the ability to prove that his clients’ cases fall within the strict statute of limitations in Georgia, and he knows exactly how to elicit and present the expert testimony necessary to prove medical negligence. Teams of medical insurance attorneys do not intimidate Mr. Schultz. He is dedicated to recovering the damages you need for lost wages, additional medical costs and the unnecessary injuries caused by the negligence of the health care professional you trusted. Trust Jason to assess your situation, map out your legal possibilities, help you choose your best option, and represent you so that you receive adequate compensation.
Jason R. Schultz’s experience in these cases and the statistical evidence has shown him how difficult medical malpractice cases are to try to a jury and to win, but he knows what needs to be done to recover compensation for people seriously injured by the misdiagnoses and negligence of doctors, hospitals and nursing homes.
