When we seek medical care, we do so with the absolute confidence that doctors and nurses have the training and knowledge required to fully attend to our health. However, when a medical professional is negligent in administering care, the experience can be traumatizing and lead to life-threatening injuries. It is not uncommon to hear about how a patient's health condition worsened after a doctor or physician misdiagnosed them or provided the wrong form of treatment, or after a negligent doctor botched an operation.
When a medical provider fails to follow procedures or performs an operation they should not have, this could be a case of medical malpractice. Contact the Piscitelli Law Firm in Ohio for claims involving:
- Injuries that occurred at birth due to medical negligence.
- ROP, or retinopathy of prematurity. Learn about the causes.
- Malpractice involving the anti-inflammatory drug Asacol.
- Wrongful death.
- Abuse occurring in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
If your caregivers erred and hurt you — due to negligence, carelessness or malfunctioning medical equipment — you may be able to build a medical malpractice case to get the compensation you deserve. We have the knowledge and experience to get you results.
How Can A Patient Prove A Medical Malpractice Claim?
A medical negligence claim is essentially a negligence claim, meaning the patient must prove the health care provider breached the standard of care and caused harm to the patient. Unlike a basic negligence claim, a medical negligence claim typically requires testimony from expert witnesses to prove breach of the standard of care and causation.
Fighting For Just Compensation For Victims
If the malpractice led to severe injury or death, the physician, hospital, insurance company or another potentially liable defendant will almost certainly put up a stiff fight to deny you fair compensation. Insurance companies and hospitals know which law firms to take seriously. When facing our law firm, the other side will know they are in for a fight.
