Hold Medical Professionals Responsible For Acts Of Malpractice
Across Columbus, there are many hospitals and clinics that are filled with people seeking treatment for a host of different medical conditions. These patients rely upon the advice and treatment that is administered by the doctors, nurses and other professionals involved in their care. In some situations, this care can actually make a patient’s health much worse.
If you have been injured due to the acts of a medical professional, you may be able to recover compensation. You should speak to an experienced lawyer to learn more about your options. At Kelly Law Office, our team has helped many Ohio families learn how to hold doctors, nurses and others in the health care field responsible for their negligent acts.
Explaining Your Options
In medical malpractice matters, it is necessary to examine the actions of the professionals involved to determine the standard of care that is appropriate in the local medical community. Proving that a doctor departed from this standard will often require the testimony of experts. Some of the most common types of medical malpractice cases include:
- Missed diagnosis of cancer or other serious medical conditions
- Wrong-site surgeries
- Birth injuries such as Erb’s palsy or cerebral palsy
- Failing to monitor patients after procedures
- Prescribing incorrect medications
- Assigning the wrong dosage of prescription drugs
You might be reluctant to pursue claims against a doctor or hospital that was involved in your care. These individuals all have malpractice insurance to protect them in the event that something like this happens. The insurance companies are the ones who have to pay you the compensation that you receive in your case. You are simply getting the compensation that you need to help deal with the problems caused by the treatment provided to you.
