As we discussed last week, the standard of care is one of the primary factors that can affect a medical malpractice case. There are several other factors that also come into the picture. Looking into the entire case is vital when you are trying to decide how to handle a medical malpractice claim.
In some cases, there might be more than one party that can be held liable for the injuries you suffered. If the malpractice occurred in a hospital, the hospital and the medical professional both might be held liable. It might also be possible to hold other parties liable for your injuries. We explore all the possibilities when we take on a medical malpractice case so we can ensure that we have the right parties named as defendants in the claim.
When it comes to medical malpractice cases, it can take considerable time to gather all the records and scrutinize them. Ohio law only grants victims of medical malpractice one year to file a claim for compensation in a medical malpractice case. That means that you mustn’t delay when you are considering a claim. Instead, we need to take action immediately so that we can get your case moving through the court system.
You shouldn’t have to deal with the effects of medical malpractice. The pain, the medical bills, the missed wages and other factors can all combine to make life difficult. While you won’t be able to undo the medical effects of the malpractice, compensation might help you to deal with the financial aspects of the negligent acts.
