Ohio Medical Malpractice
Ohio medical malpractice refers to professional misconduct, unreasonable lack of skill, or negligent conduct of doctors, nurses, dentists, therapists, technicians and other medical professionals and health care providers. Medical malpractice cases can arise from surgical errors, birth traumas, medical misdiagnoses, anesthesia errors, unreasonable delay in treating a diagnosed condition or failure to obtain informed consent from a patient before treatment.
As with any negligence case, the elements of an Ohio medical malpractice case are duty, breach, causation, and damages. Traditionally, medical professionals have been said to breach their duty to a patient if their care did not comply with the degree of skill found in their profession in the area in which they practice. Your case against a medical profession will almost always require expert testimony.
Quite simply stated, in order to recover from a medical professional, you have to show that your doctor did something that no good doctor would do, and that it caused genuine, lasting harm. You also have to show that had the doctor done his job the right way, the outcome would have been different. Additionally, a plaintiff must prove damages in order to recover for medical malpractice. Damages are often divided into two categories: general and special. General damages such as pain and suffering are not easy to quantify. Special damages such as medical costs attributable to the breach of duty can be figured through calculation. Each of these elements often has both a past and future component.
Patients are not guaranteed positive results, but only competent treatment. Potential clients must understand this point. A poor result does not always means a good case. In such cases, I can help you. I am an Ohio medical malpractice attorney who can bring a lawsuit against the negligent parties, including physicians, doctor’s groups, insurance companies, managed care organizations, hospitals, medical corporations and clinics. I represent injured individuals on a contingency fee basis. This means that I do not get paid unless you win. I will help you seek reimbursement for all related expenses, including loss of quality of life, pain and suffering, physical impairment, loss of future earnings, lost wages, the cost of all future procedures, and all medical expenses.
