Common types of medical malpractice claims

When people in Ohio go in for a medical procedure, they trust that the healthcare team is competent and will do their jobs the right way. While medical providers strive to do their best in every situation, unfortunately mistakes do occur. When this happens and it causes harm to the patient, the patient may choose to file a medical malpractice claim.

What must you prove in a medical malpractice case?

Should you become ill or injured as the result of an Ohio health care professional’s negligence or wrongdoing, you can sue that person and the facility for which (s)he works for medical malpractice. Unfortunately, medical errors occur far too frequently nowadays and in fact account for the third leading cause of American deaths.

Medical errors the nation’s third-most common cause of death

Ohio residents place a good deal of trust in their doctors and hospitals, and for good reason – their lives are often on the line. In some cases, though, you may get that gut feeling that something your doctor says or does is hurting, rather than helping, you, and when you face these circumstances, it may serve you well to seek a second opinion. At Johnson & Associates, we know that medical mistakes are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and we have helped many who suffered injury or hardship due to medical mistakes pursue recourse in the aftermath.

What are the time limits for filing medical malpractice claims?

Whether it is for a routine procedure in to address a more serious injury or illness, when you seek medical treatment in Ohio, you are putting your health and care in the hands of those treating you. Unfortunately, however, sometimes medical mistakes occur, and as a result, you may suffer a serious injury or illness. If you have suffered harm due to mistakes or negligence on the part of a health care provider, you may consider acting to obtain financial compensation for your associated losses. You do not, however, have an unlimited amount of time in which to make your decision or initiate your case. Therefore, it is important for you to understand the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in Ohio.

Informed consent and emergency situations

Informed consent is the duty of an Ohio physician to communicate to a patient everything that patient needs to know about a medical treatment, including risks and alternative treatments, so the patient may best decide how to proceed. Informed consent is vital and must be sought by medical professionals, with the only exceptions pertaining to a life-threatening emergency where a person may not be able to grant consent to treatment.
