When Doctors Violate Acceptable Standards of Care in Cincinnati
Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers help families throughout Ohio
Even the best doctors and the best hospitals have bad days. Perhaps victims of a multi-car accident overwhelm an emergency room staff when you arrive. The triage nurse is exhausted and does not take your complete medical history. As a result, you are given a drug to which you are allergic. Or, maybe you are the last patient of a long day, and your surgeon is feeling the stress. A momentary lapse in sterile technique causes a serious infection in the surgical wound. Whether it is a harried nurse injecting the wrong concentration of a drug into your IV line or a doctor missing a diagnosis, medical malpractice is more common than you may think.
Patients are often seriously injured when health care professionals make mistakes. Medical malpractice occurs hundreds of times a day in the United States. It causes loss of income, extra expenses, pain and suffering, injury, and death. It devastates patients and their families. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury because of medical malpractice by a hospital, doctor, or other medical professional the Crandall & Pera Law team wants to help. We serve clients in and around Cincinnati, Ohio.
What is medical malpractice in Cincinnati?
Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare professionals fail to perform their duties in accordance with the standards of their profession. A hospital or healthcare provider has a duty to exercise due care and properly treat patients. If they fail in that duty, and if their negligence is a direct cause of injury to the patient, the provider may be held legally liable. You and your family may be entitled to compensation for pain, suffering, disability, loss of earnings, or any other damages incurred.
Causes of medical malpractice
Crandall & Pera Law’s team of experienced Cleveland medical malpractice lawyers and Registered Nurses evaluate your injuries with the compassionate, personal, and professional attention you deserve. Our Cleveland attorneys have handled countless cases involving:
- Surgical Errors. Errors during surgery can lead to organ damage, life-threatening infection, and potentially devastating results. In some of the worst cases, healthy organs have been removed and wrong limbs amputated. We offer compassionate counsel and aggressive courtroom strategies for victims of surgical errors.
- Medication Errors. We have extensive experience building successful cases for victims of medication errors who were overdosed, under-dosed, or given the wrong medication altogether.
- Emergency Room Errors. Because of the fast pace of emergency room activity, staff may evaluate an incoming patient’s condition incorrectly, or delay treatment unnecessarily and cause their condition to worsen. Our in-depth knowledge of emergency room operation, combined with the knowledge of our three on-staff registered nurses, makes Crandall & Pera Law a formidable opponent in cases involving emergency room errors.
- Birth Injuries. Crandall & Pera Law has focused on birth injuries and birth trauma since the firm’s inception. We have handled virtually every type of birth injury claim and have won multi-million-dollar verdicts as well as very large settlements for our clients throughout Ohio.
Other common forms of malpractice include anesthesia errors, administration of dangerous drugs, and implantation of defective medical devices.
