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.”

Answers To Common Questions About Medical Malpractice

Below, we’ve provided answers to questions we often receive from prospective clients. We invite you to contact us if you have additional questions or want to learn more about how we can help you.

Is there a time limitation to when I can file my case?

Any medical negligence or personal injury case has a time limitation beyond which you cannot file your case.  This time limitation is called a Statute of Limitations.  This is why it is very important to contact Crandall & Pera Law, LLC to discuss your case as quickly as you can.  Most medical malpractice cases have a statute of limitations as short as one year, which can be extended by six months in certain cases.  Wrongful death actions carry a two-year statute of limitations, as do personal injury cases, however neither of those limitations can be extended absent filing a case.  It is very important that you move fast and contact us before the time period has run out.

What type of damages are necessary for a valid case?

There are many elements for a successful case, beyond just proving someone was negligent. Cleveland, Ohio can be a very conservative jurisdiction for damages so it is necessary to bring cases forward that have significant damages. These include:

  • birth injury, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries.
  • brain damage, paralysis.
