Better Matters

What is Medical Malpractice?

If you’re reading this, you or your loved one is probably hurting from a mistake a medical professional made. It’s called medical malpractice, and it’s the third leading cause of death in the United States, according to a study by John Hopkins University.

There is legal recourse when a patient is harmed by a medical professional who fails to competently perform their duties, resulting in permanent, disabling injuries.

If you want to understand what happened, why it happened, and ensure it does not happen again, Jim Casey and the team at Casey Injury Law can help. Our firm is committed to making things better for you, your family, and your community because making things better matters. 

Medical malpractice laws vary from state to state, so it’s important to hire an attorney in the state in which you were injured to get the best legal guidance. Currently, our firm is able to represent cases in the state of Ohio.

To prove medical malpractice, several key circumstances must be established:

  • A relationship existed between the medical professional and the patient: The medical professional was hired to treat the patient
  • The medical professional was negligent: You must be able to prove that a competent doctor in the same circumstances would have made a different and better decision for the patient.
  • The medical professional’s negligence caused the injury: A patient is usually already sick when they seek medical care, so it’s important to show that it is likely that the medical professional’s incompetence is the reason for the injury, rather than the original condition
  • The injury led to damages, such as additional medical bills, physical pain, and pain and suffering

How A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Can Help You

An experienced and successful medical malpractice attorney is more likely to win you the compensation that you need to cover all of your medical expenses. Your attorney must demonstrate that your healthcare provider had a duty of care to you, breached that standard of care and that your injuries resulted from this breach. Medical malpractice laws vary from state to state, so it is important for you to seek a medical malpractice lawyer if you have been injured in Mentor Ohio. Some laws, such as Emily‘s Law, are specific to Ohio because of a case that occurred at a children’s hospital in Cleveland. If you talk to someone who filed a medical malpractice suit in another state, their experience will be different from yours, so you want someone who can guide you during this difficult time. An attorney who knows Ohio medical malpractice laws is your best advocate for you to get your damages compensated.

A medical malpractice lawyer also has access to expert witnesses. These are professionals who can prove that an injury was caused by negligence, and explain how the injury will impact the rest of the victim’s life. Their testimony holds weight because they are considered to be reputable and held to high ethical standards by their profession. A medical malpractice attorney that has been practicing for several years has acquired many connections to expert witnesses over their career, and they can help you.
