Cleveland Medical Malpractice
Cleveland Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Experienced medical malpractice and medical negligence lawyers aid Cleveland patients and their families
Many medical treatments do not lead to complete cures in every case, and sometimes you cannot expect they will. However, when you place yourself under the care of a doctor or hospital you should expect to receive complete, competent, and professional treatment. Unfortunately, acts of medical negligence and outright incompetence occur hundreds of times a day in the United States.
Serious injury and illness may occur as a result of malpractice, which causes loss of income, extra expenses, pain and suffering, injury and death. Patients and their families are now faced with more problems than they had before they went for initial treatment. If this has happened to you or a member of your family, the CPW Law team wants to help. Our group of talented Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys has secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients – and we want to help you, too.
Cleveland, Ohio medical malpractice in simple terms
Medical malpractice is the failure of a medical professional to perform his or her duties according to the standards of the profession. The medical professional has to meet what the law describes as a “standard of care” for the services and procedures performed. That standard is defined as what other practitioners in the same medical specialty would normally do under the same circumstances. Thus, if your doctor removes your appendix carelessly, in a manner that causes you to develop peritonitis, he or she will have breached the “standard of care” for that surgery, and can be held liable for any damages resulting from it. Those damages can include pain, suffering, disability, loss of earnings, or any other damages that were a direct result.
How we can help you in and around Cleveland
CPW Law’s team of experienced Ohio medical malpractice lawyers and Registered Nurses discusses and evaluates your injuries with the compassionate, personal and professional attention you deserve. Listing all the different kinds of medical malpractice is impossible, but among the most common are:
- Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis. Patients and their families can suffer catastrophic loss when a medical professional fails to diagnose, or misdiagnoses, an illness. This is especially true in conditions such as cancer, where early diagnosis and treatment are critical.
- Anesthesia errors. Anesthesia errors can cause injuries ranging from a patient’s awakening during surgery to their suffering brain damage or even death. We protect the rights of victims of anesthesia errors.
- Dangerous drugs and defective devices. In cases ranging from administration of questionable drugs such as Actos or Dilaudid, to implantation of defective hip replacements, we take on even the most complex medical malpractice claims involving dangerous drugs and defective medical devices.
- Birth injuries. CPW 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 multi-million-dollar settlements for our clients throughout Ohio.
Other common types of malpractice include medication errors, surgical errors, and emergency room errors.
