Neurologists are doctors who specialize in treating conditions impacting the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. When a neurologist makes a mistake in treating these critical bodily systems, the results can be catastrophic. Victims of neurologist malpractice can be permanently disabled, or might find themselves facing years of physical therapy and time away from work. A neurologist’s malpractice can impact every facet of your life, and you need the best available lawyer to protect your rights.

Neurologists are generally not surgeons. Rather, they are charged with treating and evaluating a wide variety of disorders and conditions—including those sustained in a car accident, sports accident or other trauma.
Your family doctor might refer you to a neurologist if it is suspected that you suffer from, or have suffered, any of the following:
A mistake in treating any one of these conditions can result in long-term physical, emotional, and other cognitive impairment. You could experience personality changes, memory loss, paralysis, and even death. Other victims of neurologist malpractice may experience lifelong pain that may not even be relieved by addictive painkillers. If your neurologist was careless or reckless in your care, you deserve financial compensation for the mistake and the harm you have suffered.
At Matzus Law LLC, our lawyers are passionate about holding negligent doctors accountable for their mistakes. One of the only ways to ensure competent medical care is to make negligent doctors pay financially when their carelessness harms patients. Call us today to discuss your case in more detail so that we can get to work establishing your right to compensation.
Neurologist malpractice is a subset of medical malpractice law. Like other doctors, neurologists in Pennsylvania can only be held financially responsible for their mistakes if the mistake amounts to malpractice.
Like other doctors, a neurologist can never promise a positive outcome in every case. The courts and legislature require a strong showing of medical negligence before injured patients are given the right to financial compensation.
The standard for establishing medical malpractice in Pennsylvania requires establishing:
Specific examples of mistakes a neurologist might make in an actionable neurologist malpractice case include:
Most patients who require a neurologist’s treatment have no choice but to put their trust in that doctor’s abilities. Neurologist malpractice is a violation of that trust that can give you the right to fair financial compensation for all of the unnecessary pain that the doctor’s mistake has caused.
If you suspect you have been harmed by a neurologist’s actions or omissions, speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner we begin investigating your case, the stronger the evidence might be. We can even help put you in touch with a respected neurologist who can make sure you get the treatment you need to prevent future harm.

Neurological disorders can cause a variety of symptoms. If you suffer any of the following symptoms after seeing your neurologist, you should schedule a follow-up or get a second opinion about your neurologist’s course of treatment:
– Vomiting or nausea
– Memory loss
– Personality changes
– Lack of appetite
– Tingling sensations in the limbs
– Loss of motor coordination
In general, if you’re feeling worse, it is important that you get medical treatment. You might not know if your neurologist committed malpractice for some time, but our lawyers can help you evaluate your treatment and your doctor’s actions.
Yes. You see a doctor because you have, or suspect you have a medical condition or injury. It is the doctor’s job to provide competent treatment—and that means considering your full medical history when recommending a treatment plan. Your past medical history does not bar you from pursuing your right to compensation if your neurologist committed malpractice.
