Representing Ohio Residents In Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice (also known as medical negligence) is the failure of a medical professional to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances, resulting in injury or death of a patient.
In Ohio, medical malpractice is governed by statute (ORC 2305.113) and include claims against the following types of medical professionals:
- Hospitals and employees
- Nursing homes and employees
If you or a loved one has been injured by the negligence of a medical professional, contact Beausay & Nichols Law Firm. We are experienced in handling complex medical malpractice claims, from both sides — plaintiff and defense — giving us a unique perspective that many firms can’t offer.
Do I Have A Claim For Medical Malpractice?
To establish medical malpractice, you must prove that a medical professional fell below the standard of care, causing serious harm or death. This is difficult to prove because the standard of care under the circumstances is often debatable.
In addition, expert witnesses must be retained to prove that the medical professional was negligent and that the negligence caused substantial harm.
Because medical malpractice cases are difficult to prove and expensive, very few lawyers will handle them. Therefore, it is especially important in medical malpractice/negligence cases that you promptly consult with an experienced trial lawyer who handles medical malpractice and medical negligence cases.
What Can I Recover?
The damages in a medical claim are the same as other personal injury cases:
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Rehabilitation and other related expenses
- Permanent disability
- Pain, suffering and emotional distress
- Cost of future care and services
