Providing A Voice For Victims Of Medical Malpractice In Ohio
Medical providers are held to a higher standard than professionals in other occupations. These providers are entrusted with providing appropriate medical care and for caring for our loved ones. When medical negligence leads to an individual’s unnecessary suffering, these providers should be held accountable for their substandard care.

Answering Your Frequently Asked Questions
We understand how complex medical malpractice cases can be, and we are here to help you navigate this complicated system to seek the compensation you deserve. Below are answers to a few common questions about medical malpractice, but do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any further questions.
What is medical malpractice and how can I know if I’ve been a victim of it?
Medical malpractice is generally when a doctor or health care professional is negligent and does not provide the level of care that the patient deserves. In rare cases, malpractice may be intentional, but it is more often caused by negligence, oversights and things of this nature.
How does one sue a negligent doctor? What constitutes a valid medical malpractice claim?
A valid medical malpractice claim is when the patient has suffered harm, and a link can be established between the event, the doctor’s negligence and the damages suffered by the patient. When this link is present, a qualified attorney can help the patient sue the negligent doctor and, potentially, the medical institution itself.
What is the ‘standard of care’ and how does it relate to medical malpractice?
The “standard of care” refers to the care that a patient should have received and the level of care that they would realistically expect from any other medical professional. In some cases, an outside medical expert will need to be brought in to testify regarding the established standard of care and how the doctor in question did not uphold that standard.
What are some examples of medical malpractice cases?
Medical malpractice can involve obvious errors, like wrong-site surgeries. Other times, they can involve mistakes like a delayed cancer diagnosis or when a doctor misdiagnoses a heart attack as heartburn or stress. There are numerous possibilities.
How long do I have to file a medical malpractice lawsuit after the date of injury in Ohio?
Most medical malpractice claims in Ohio have a statute of limitations of one year beginning when the patient suffers harm or when they become aware of the error.
