What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a large area of law that encompasses a wide range of legal issues, but many people are unfamiliar with what actually constitutes medical malpractice. In general, all healthcare providers are required to adhere to an established standard of care when evaluating, treating and monitoring patients. All providers must act in a way that is comparable to how other, prudent providers would act in the same or similar situation. If this standard of care is breached, the victim may be able to recover damages for injuries caused by such negligence. Claims for medical malpractice may be brought against any type of healthcare provider, including
- Nurses, nurse practitioners and patient care techs
- EMTs and paramedics
- Hospitals, clinics and healthcare organizations
- Clinical social workers
Because medical malpractice includes such a broad spectrum of issues, the number of legal actions taken against healthcare providers has increased over recent years. From 2003 to 2013, the number of legal actions in Ohio rose from 1,004 to 2,251. Additionally, medical malpractice payouts in the United States totaled $3.6 billion in 2012.
Medical malpractice claims require a high level of legal knowledge and experience
Medical malpractice laws are often confusing to interpret without the help of a proficient attorney with hands-on experience working with Ohio laws. Typically, a victim only has one year from the date of the alleged negligent act to file a lawsuit. This statute of limitations, however, may be flexible, depending upon the specific circumstances of your situation. There are also exceptions for victims that are minors or of unsound mind. In some cases, you may also be able to get an extension of the one-year time limit if you provide notice to potential defendants, but this method is complicated and requires attention to even the smallest details. Complying with Ohio’s medical malpractice laws is vital to achieving a positive resolution. If you think your injuries may have been the result of medical negligence, seek advice from our skilled Cleveland malpractice attorneys as soon as possible.
