Ohio Medical Malpractice Claims Attorneys
Medical negligence is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. You have a medical malpractice case when a health care provider (anyone from a doctor, to nurse to technician) falls short of the recognized standard of care in their treatment of you. The recognized standard of care in a medical malpractice case is that you should receive the level and type of care that a reasonably competent and skilled health professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community, would have provided in the circumstances that led to your injury due to the malpractice. A medical professional can fall below this required standard of care either by doing an act or failing to do an act that leads to your injury.
How to Win a Medical Malpractice Claim
In order to prevail on a medical malpractice claim, you must prove that there actually was a doctor/patient relationship at the time of the accident, that the doctor or medical professional was negligent, that the negligence caused the injury, and that your injury led to damages.
