When we go to a hospital, clinic or emergency room, we put our health in the hands of doctors and other medical professionals. While no one is guaranteed a positive outcome, we have a right to expect that our health care providers meet the standard of care for our community. If you received substandard care and you suffered a serious injury as a result, you may have a medical malpractice claim.
One Of Ohio’s Leading Malpractice Firms
At Arnold & Clifford LLP, we understand that medical malpractice is an emotional issue and we work closely with our clients to do all we can to get a favorable resolution. Our experience demonstrates this. One of our clients whose wife suffered wrongful death due to medical malpractice was awarded $6.6 million — the largest wrongful death verdict to date in Franklin County, Ohio.
Medical malpractice occurs when a person suffers an injury or dies because of negligence or improper treatment by a medical professional, a hospital or another provider of health care.
Examples of medical malpractice may include:
- Failure to diagnose serious injury or disease
- Surgical errors
- Birth injuries caused by negligence
- Prescription drugs errors
- Radiology or lab test errors
Our lawyers only handle medical malpractice cases involving catastrophic injury or death. We handle these cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that our fee, if we are successful, will be a percentage of any compensation we recover for you. If we are not successful, you will owe us nothing.
