Guidance Through Medical Malpractice Claims

When a reckless or negligent medical professional makes a mistake during a patient’s treatment or care, the consequences can be catastrophic or even fatal. If you have suffered from malpractice, it is only reasonable to expect the liable party to cover the costs of their actions. Holding them accountable for what happened to you may be difficult on your own, which is why you deserve representation from a skilled personal injury team.

We have more than four decades of experience helping clients secure fair compensation for their medical malpractice injuries. Our Ohio lawyers are dedicated to bringing each of our clients to the outcome they deserve in their claims, and we are committed to standing by you through your entire claim.

What Qualifies As Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider, such as a physician, nurse or hospital, fails to act in a manner consistent with the required standard of care, resulting in injury. Malpractice claims commonly require these four specific elements to establish a valid claim:

  1. A duty of care owed to a patient
  2. A violation of that duty
  3. Proof of harm from that violation
  4. The resulting damages from the harm suffered

We can review your case to determine if you are eligible for a medical malpractice claim, no matter how you may have been hurt.
