Practice Areas / Malpractice & Other Mistakes By Professionals

We hold professionals accountable.

People trust doctors and lawyers with the most important aspects of their lives, and when these professionals don’t do what they should the results can be disastrous.  When they don’t accept responsibility, we help you recover by holding them accountable.

We identify malpractice.

Negligence by a professional is known as malpractice. For a malpractice claim to succeed, it must have the following characteristics:

Violation of professional standards

Professionals must meet certain minimum standards, often referred to as the "standard of care." To prove malpractice it's necessary to prove the professional violated the standard of care. We do this by hiring top-notch experts.

Injury or loss resulting in considerable damages

Malpractice lawsuits can be emotionally draining and are typically expensive to litigate. Also, many states, including Ohio, have unfairly placed artificial limits on the amount of money malpractice victims can receive for certain types of harms. As a result, in many malpractice cases it doesn't make sense to pursue the claim unless significant harm or death has occurred.

Harm caused by negligence

For a malpractice claim to succeed, it's not enough to prove that the professional violated the standard of care, and that our client suffered serious harm. It's also essential to prove that the malpractice caused the harm.

Malpractice can occur in many different settings:
