What is medical malpractice?
The term “medical malpractice” is in some ways misleading. It sounds a bit ominous, and it makes people (including jurors and prospective jurors) think that a doctor must do something really, really bad to held accountable. The truth, however, is that medical malpractice really is just negligence by a medical professional. Just as a driver can be held responsible for not using reasonable care while driving a car, a doctor or hospital can be held responsible for not using reasonable care while treating a patient. Showing a jury that a physician didn’t act reasonably is much more difficult than showing someone violated a traffic rule, and it takes a qualified medical expert to do so, but the concept is really the same. Our Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys can help you file a lawsuit whenever a medical professional’s conduct leads to serious injury or death. The statute of limitations (or deadline) for medical malpractice claims in Ohio can be as short as one year from the date of injury, so it is important to find the right attorney as soon as possible.
Common injuries caused by medical negligence
Our Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys have seen it all when it comes to medical malpractice claims over nearly 40 years of providing legal representation. Through our experience, we have been able to narrow our thousands of cases down to just a few broad categories of medical malpractice claims, including
- Birth injuries — Labor, delivery, and the first few moments of life are critical. At these times, doctors and nurses can make mistakes that cause birth injuries to your child and change their future forever, including cerebral palsy, neonatal stroke, or
- Brain and spinal cord injuries — Damage to your brain and nervous system is often irreversible and requires a lifetime of ongoing care and medical needs. Traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and brain bleeds are some of the most serious brain and spinal cord injuries. Our Ohio medical malpractice attorneys fight to recover compensation to cover your past and future rehabilitation costs. We tirelessly litigate on your behalf when you suffer a brain or spinal cord injury at the hands of your doctor.
- Surgical and hospital mistakes — It is alarming how many people die each year from surgical and hospital mistakes. From anesthesia mistakes and medication mistakes to emergency room errors, it is estimated that nearly 500,000 people die each year from preventable hospital mistakes. Whether your loved one passed away or you suffered an injury from a preventable hospital error, you deserve to be fully compensated.
- Diagnosis and treatment errors — Misdiagnosis is a serious mistake that occurs all too often simply because doctors get complacent and become inattentive to their patients. Diagnosis and treatment errors are particularly dangerous when patients have a life-threatening event or illness, such as heart attack, abdominal aortic aneurysm or undiagnosed cancer, where time is of the essence.
- Wrongful death — The death of a patient due to the medical negligence or recklessness of the doctor they trusted is devastating. A wrongful death lawsuit can be brought when a doctor’s errors in treatment lead to a patient’s death.
