Medical Malpractice


Doctors and other health care professionals may be held liable for injuries and damages caused by the failure to act within the accepted standard of care. In Ohio, there are specific laws governing unique areas of medical malpractice claims. The reality is that these cases are aggressively contested, complicated and usually very expensive to pursue. As a result, these cases must be screened and scrutinized during the evaluation process before a case is filed into court.

People go to the emergency room because they believe they are suffering from a serious medical condition. They have a medical emergency and they have the right to expect that they will be treated appropriately. When they are not treated with the appropriate level of care, emergency room errors occur, most of which involve misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious condition, such as a heart attack, stroke or aneurysm.

How Emergency Room Errors Happen

At the root of most ER errors is a doctor who is rushing through a patient's diagnosis. Doctors must carefully assess patients and set forth a differential diagnosis, in which they use judgment based on the empirical medicine, conduct the appropriate tests to rule out the most serious possible medical conditions first and take the steps necessary to find out exactly what is wrong with the patient. If necessary, X-rays need to be ordered and reviewed, medications including life saving antibiotics may need to be administered timely. The fact that an emergency room is understaffed and overburdened is no excuse for sending someone away without treating him or her properly. We take action when this happens.

Cleveland Pathology Error Lawyers

People who suffer from serious medical conditions, such as cancer, receive care from more than just one doctor. Several medical professionals may be involved in their treatment, and much of what happened hinges on the results of lab tests. If something goes wrong in the lab, it can have a negative impact on the patient's treatment. If the lab misses something critical, the patient could be misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all.

Investigating Cerebral Palsy Cases

Cerebral palsy is a form of brain damage caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. This could be the result of a doctor not performing a C-section in a timely manner, not recognizing a breech birth or not addressing a prolapsed umbilical cord. It could also be the result of improper use of medications. We will find out exactly what was done wrong and we will hold the negligent doctor accountable. back to top

We want to know exactly what care your child will need and how much that care will cost. Will your home need to be altered? Will you need a van with a wheelchair lift?
