We Answer What Happened And Why
When medical negligence occurs, the first thing patients and their families want is answers. Unfortunately, the first thing hospitals and doctors want is protection. The result is people suffer a tragic outcome and don’t know why. Not knowing can fester and last for years or a lifetime.
On the cases we take on, the number one job for our medical malpractice lawyer is to find out what happened and why. Most times, there is no negligence; the person or family understands what happened; and they can move foreward without any cost to them.
Sometimes, we find there were errors made that would have prevented the outcome. In those cases, our clients get a firm understanding of what happened; why it happened; and we proceed to hold the responsible accountable.
Hold The Responsible Accountable
Our clients have been in 55 of the 88 counties in the State of Ohio and states stretching from California to New Jersey. There are few health care systems with which we have not had experience. Likewise, we have worked opposite every major medical negligence insurance carrier.
Regardless of the defense, our philosophy on every case is to prepare the case from the beginning for trial. By preparing the case for trial, we shift risk to the defense and most times obtain a resolution of the matter prior to trial.
Sometimes, the defense chooses trial and being prepared has historically given our clients a well above average success rate in those cases.
We always preserve the confidentiality of our clients. This prevents us from sharing specific results.
