Injuries occur as the result of negligence on the part of a nursing home, physician or other medical care provider more frequently than most people realize. Since patients and nursing home residents are already facing challenging health situations, instances of negligence can be especially painful for those patients and their loved ones. When negligence occurs, those who are responsible should be held accountable.
Park Ridge attorney Matt Hess has significant experience in cases involving medical malpractice and nursing home negligence. Most importantly, although he has committed his career to advocating for patients, in the past he defended physicians, hospitals, nursing homes and the insurance companies who insure them at trial. He therefore has a keen eye and unique ability to review the medical records involved and help you determine whether negligence may have occurred, and he can help you determine what should happen next. If a case of nursing home negligence or medical malpractice exists, he may work with you to initiate legal proceedings or refer you to one of his many contacts in the medical malpractice arena, depending upon the complexity of your particular case.
