Malpractice lawsuits highly technical, expensive

Duluth News Tribune, by Brandon StahlMay 29, 2011

Medical malpractice lawsuits are difficult to file in Minnesota, let alone win, and they're not approached lightly.

Under a state law passed in the 1970s to prevent frivolous lawsuits, before a case can be brought it must be reviewed by an independent medical expert who specializes in the same field of the physician accused of wrongdoing. That expert then has to sign a detailed affidavit saying that not only did negligent care occur, but the care resulted in harm. The cost to get an expert and to obtain medical records can be thousands of dollars.

"A lot of law firms stay away from these cases because it involves a lot of time and expense before you even know if there's a case," said Paul Schweiger, a Duluth attorney who specializes in malpractice cases.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

Cameron Lulic

2 years ago I went through a traumatic personal injury while I was in college. Through all of the chaos that was happening in my life as a result of this event, I cannot thank my father enough for referring me to SiebenCarey Personal Injury Law. Through a long and complicated process, I spent little time worrying about the legal battle when I had personal battles to fight on my own in addition to finishing my senior year. For that, I am eternally grateful to have had Jim Carey by my side to give clear and thoughtful advice for how to maneuver the legal challenges that my personal injury case faced. Thank you, Jim. If there was a silver lining that came out of a horrific experience, it was having the opportunity of working with you. You are tenacious, fair, and always willing to go the harder path to make sure your clients are well represented.
