What We Do

We provide you with proven insight and personal attention in high-stakes cases involving:

  • Medical Malpractice. The firm has the resources to handle complex cases of medical negligence in Ohio and Kentucky. If an act of malpractice led to an incorrect or delayed diagnosis, or a surgical or medication error, Crandall & Pera Law’s attorneys have the skills and experience to guide you toward a just outcome. All three partners are former malpractice defense attorneys, and therefore understand exactly how the defense will make its case. Being able to anticipate these defenses allows the team to build a stronger case for clients injured by medical malpractice in Ohio and Kentucky hospitals, clinics, private offices and emergency rooms.
  • Birth Injuries. The attorneys are widely recognized for their work in the area of labor and delivery negligence. Crandall & Pera Law advocates on behalf of Ohio and Kentucky families whose lives have been changed because of a negligence-related birth injury.
  • Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect. The Kentucky nursing home neglect lawyers of the firm have years of experience fighting on behalf of clients whose family members have suffered in long-term care facilities.
  • Wrongful Death. The unexpected loss of a loved one is always heartbreaking. When that death is caused by the negligent actions of another person or entity, you have legal options available. Crandall & Pera Law helps families obtain the compensation they need to secure their future, so that they might focus on healing together.
  • Personal Injury. The Kentucky and Ohio personal injury lawyers of the firm provides comprehensive representation for clients who have sustained serious, often permanent injuries after a catastrophic accident.
  • Construction Accidents. When a construction worker is hurt on the job, he or she can rely on workers’ compensation. When a bystander is injured, there is no “back-up plan.” The firm represents independent contractors, visitors and passersby who have sustained an injury on or near a construction site, or in a construction zone on Ohio or Kentucky roadways.
  • Auto Accidents. In 2014, the most recent year available, 672 people died in auto accident in Kentucky. Auto accidents caused the death of 1,006 people in Ohio that same year. They led to thousands of injuries in both states. Crandall & Pera Law protects families who have suffered at the hands of negligent drivers. The firm has earned a reputation in dram shop cases in particular, but handles all types of complex auto accident cases.
  • Commercial Trucking Accidents. Both Ohio and Kentucky rely on the trucking industry to keep their states running, and their residents employed. It is why there are so many commercial trucks on the roadways – and why there are so many truck accidents each year. If you were injured because of the actions of a negligent commercial truck driver, or because of a defective auto part, the firm may be able to help.

Our services are highly personal and tailored to meet the individual needs of your case. Our lawyers are compassionate, approachable and skilled. All Crandall & Pera Law clients have our promise of a deeply personal commitment to their cases. Rest assured knowing that we will be at your side during what may be the most difficult time of your life.

What People Say About Us

Timothy E. White

"It was as a result of a very unfortunate outcome from what should have been a fairly straightforward medical procedure for my wife that our family was introduced to Steve Crandall. I can honestly attest to Steve’s character and integrity, even more evident as we progressed through the course of my wife’s case. I was especially appreciative of his guidance, thoroughness, and patience with regard to all of the legal matters, professionally and as a gentleman, since this was an avenue that my family and I had never travelled previously and was sometimes uncomfortable for us . Yet, his sound counsel provided a lot of the assurance we needed, morally as well as a peace of mind due to our medical financial situation. I could only hope that if our paths would cross again at some point that it would be under more pleasant circumstances. However, I would not even hesitate to contact Steve Crandall if I were to ever require his expertise in a similar situation again, nor waver from recommending his commendable services to another."

"I heard about Marc Pera when my family was in a horrific car accident. I lost my husband in the accident. The medical bills were overwhelming and I was not in a state to deal with any of the chaos. There were several attorneys that reached out to me, but I wanted to hire the best and someone I could trust. A close friend gave Marc’s name to me as a recommendation. During my first conversation with Marc, he offered to come to me at the hospital for my convenience. He did a great job of explaining to me exactly what was happening. He took all of the medical bills and pressure off of my plate. It was obvious that he cared about a lot more than the money. Marc truly cared about my daughter & myself. He did a great job looking at the mere circumstances other than just the legal standpoint. I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone in a situation similar to ours."

Shari H.

"I contacted Steve Crandall after my husband sustained a permanent injury as a result of negligence on the part of his physicians. After meeting with him, it was clear that he thoroughly understood the issues with our case. Due to fact that I waited to contact an attorney, we did not have much time before we exceeded the statute of limitations. Steve, and his staff, wasted no time in obtaining my husband’s medical records and proceeding with the case. Throughout the entire process, I was so impressed with how prompt Steve was in returning phone calls and emails, and his willingness to take as much time as needed to answer any questions that I had. The interaction that I had with his paralegals regarding obtaining my husband’s medical, financial, and educational records was equally impressive. I could not be more pleased with how Steve handled the case, and the end result of it."

"The first time we met Steve Crandall was at a very traumatic and difficult time. My family, the community and I were all grieving the death of my sister. Steve was very comforting and reassuring. He came to Toledo and met with our entire family. During that meeting he gave us great confidence and was very interested in my sister and her life. Steve was thorough throughout the entire process and became like a friend of our family. A lot of great things have happened since he resolved the case that has given us peace and a sense of victory. Steve was our champion and helped us to be heard. We would highly recommend Steve to others and have referred many people to him since."
