What is Medical Malpractice?

Doctors are required by law to use the same skill, care, and diligence another physician would under the same or similar circumstances.

However, side effects and other negative consequences do not fall under this standard of a medical malpractice claim. These are possible even from appropriate medical care. You must establish that your injury or condition resulted from a medical provider not adhering to their professional duty of care. If you are unsure, our Ohio medical malpractice lawyers can help.

Elements of Ohio Medical Malpractice Claims

To win compensation during a medical malpractice claim, you must prove:

  • The medical provider owed you a duty of care: You must establish the doctor-patient relationship.
  • The standard of care: The physician should have used the same ordinary skill, care, and diligence as another member of their profession would have under the circumstances.
  • The medical provider breached that standard: The evidence must show that the physician failed to do something they should have or did something they should not have.
    The medical provider’s conduct caused you harm: You have suffered an injury for which you can be compensated.

We are highly experienced in establishing medical malpractice claims in Ohio, enabling us to pursue significant settlements and jury awards.

Ohio Medical Malpractice Compensation

The amount of compensation you can expect in a medical malpractice claim depends on the unique circumstances and factors such as insurance policy limits, damage caps, and prior injuries.

Ohio limits compensation for non-economic damages in a medical malpractice case. This includes your pain and suffering. Non-economic damages are limited to whichever is greater: $250,000 or three times the amount of economic damages, up to $350,000 for each plaintiff or $500,000 for each occurrence.

However, if medical negligence caused a permanent and substantial deformity, loss of the use of a limb, loss of the use of an organ or system, or a permanent physical functional injury that prevents you from taking care of yourself, then the damage cap is raised to $500,000 per plaintiff and $1 million per occurrence.

We will work very closely with you, medical experts, vocational experts, and economic experts to determine the value of your damages. We will not overlook any physical, emotional, and financial harm you have suffered or will continue to suffer in the future.
