Doctor’s offices and hospitals should be safe places where you can go to receive treatment and recover from your injuries or illnesses.

It is important that you reinforce the integrity of the medical community by holding negligent doctors responsible for their actions.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is any careless or negligent action that causes severe injury, illness, or death to a patient.

Some common cases of medical malpractice include:

  • Injuries sustained during childbirth
  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Medication errors
  • Hospital related injections
  • Mistakes made in surgery
  • Objects left in the body post-surgery
  • Patient negligence in hospitals

Hospitals, medical providers, and healthcare institutions must be held to a high standard of care. If you believe that you or your loved one was treated wrongly, call Schottenstein Law Offices today. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means you won’t pay us a cent until you have recovered financially. We use our ⅓ contingency rate to motivate us and protect your wallet. We strive for the highest payouts for our clients.

Do You Have a Case?

Medical malpractice cases hinge on the definition of a “standard of care.” If you can prove that, under the same circumstances, a rational doctor, medical technician, or nurse, would have behaved differently, you may have a case. You must also prove that you sustained significant harm because of their poor actions. These cases can be very complex and require many interviews from witnesses, co-workers, and family members. You will need a competent medical malpractice attorney in Columbus Ohio if you want a chance at success.

Make Sure to Obtain an Affidavit of Merit

In 2005, the Ohio State Legislature wrote in the Ohio Rule of Civil Procedure 10(D)(2) which states that all medical malpractice cases require an affidavit of merit signed by a qualified expert. This paperwork proves that you have a viable case.

In the affidavit, a medical professional must state:

  • He or she is aware of the state medical standard of care
  • The defendant in the case did not regard this standard of care when treating the plaintiff
  • He or she has reviewed all of the plaintiff’s medical records, including those related to the lawsuit
  • He or she believes that the defendant’s actions caused significant damage to the plaintiff
