The Statute of Limitations in Ohio is Important to Remember
The deadline for filing malpractice suits in Ohio is short, typically one year. This deadline can be extended when the patient is a minor or when an adult patient does not timely discover the injury. Timing is critical in malpractice cases so that your attorney has the time to gather the records and obtain the expert review required to support a law suit. For this reason, it is important that you contact an experienced attorney as soon a you think you have been a victim of medical malpractice.
Can a medical malpractice suit help me?
When a doctor or hospital is held legally responsible for injuries you suffered due to their negligence in your medical care or treatment, they may be made to pay for your injuries. These injuries are often severe, debilitating, and life altering. For this reason, it is critical that you and your family be represented by an experienced malpractice attorney who will fight to obtain the compensation that you deserve. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded against medical providers to punish them for their conscious disregard for your safety and rights.
