recovery, we absorb all expenses - including attorney fees.
Medical Malpractice results if the doctor injures his or her
patient by using skill or rendering care that is less than that
which could be expected from a reasonably competent doctor in
diagnosing or treating the same condition.
When a doctor or health care provider fails to take adequate
steps to prevent serious injury, or mistakenly inflicts serious
injury or death, the Ohio legal system may provide one avenue for
the victim and their family to obtain compensation and prevent such
incidents from happening again.
Many think the term "malpractice" applies only to medical
doctors, yet there are other health care providers such as
chiropractors, therapists, nurses, psychologists, nursing homes,
anesthetists and dentists who may also be sued for medical
malpractice under Ohio law.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO FILE A LAWSUIT?
In Ohio, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice is
one year from when the patient (or sometimes a particular family
member or guardian) either knows, or should know with the exercise
of reasonable diligence, that an injury has occurred and there is a
reasonable possibility that it was caused by medical malpractice.
SHOULD I HIRE AN ATTORNEY?
YES! You will need a lawyer because medical malpractice cases are
very complex and difficult to pursue. You should expect the doctor,
hospital or health care provider to hire a lawyer who specializes in
defending medical malpractice claims and you should anticipate the
defense will normally pull out all stops to fight against your
claim. Ohio has many complicated legal procedures that must be
followed even before you file your malpractice suit.
At the Law Offices of Barry W. Vermeeren, we pride ourselves in
our representation of persons and families in Ohio who have suffered
injury from anotherís negligence.
