Medical Malpractice Attorneys
First Do No Harm
These four simple words from the foundation of the Hippocratic Oath. But sometimes harm does occur. Medical malpractice, also referred to as medical negligence, arises when the care given by a medical professional (doctor, nurse or technician) or medical facility (hospital, psychiatrist hospital, healthcare facility) falls below the accepted standard for the medical community. When death or injuries occur as a result of medical error, a medical malpractice law suit is warranted.
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of poor medical practice, you have the right to legal action. Speak with one of our northeast Ohio, Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Columbus or Cuyahoga Falls medical malpractice attorneys at the Eshelman Legal Group by calling toll free (800) 365-0001. We can set up an appointment at one of our seven office locations or meet you at your home or hospital room.
It is important to note that there are four legal requirements that must be proven for such a claim to succeed. These elements include:
- The existence of a legal duty on the part of the doctor to provide care or treatment to the patient
- A breach of this duty by a failure of the treating doctor to adhere to the standards of the profession
- A causal relationship between such breach of duty and injury to the patient
- The existence of damages (without which, there is no basis for a claim, regardless of whether the medical provider was negligent)
