Ohio Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Mansfield, Warren, Toledo and all of Ohio
Have You Been the Victim of Medical Negligence?
Not every bad medical outcome is due to doctor negligence. Sometimes patients die or suffer serious injuries even when the health care provider did everything right. However, if your treatment fell short of the generally expected standard of care, your health care provider may be guilty of malpractice.
If you have suffered a worsened medical condition, or if a loved one died, and you suspect medical negligence caused or contributed to the situation, an attorney at Seaman & Associates can evaluate whether you have a case. We represent medical malpractice victims throughout Ohio.
Are You Unsure If Medical Malpractice Actually Occurred?
It’s okay if you don’t know. Medical care is so complicated that it can be very difficult for average people to identify negligence unless it was very obvious. Our medical malpractice attorneys have been handling medical negligence cases for decades. We have a thorough understanding of the law and access to medical experts needed to prove a client’s case.
We have handled a wide range of medical malpractice cases, including:
Birth Injuries: No medical injury is as heartbreaking to a family as a birth injury. We work with families and medical experts to determine if negligence played a part in causing cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, shoulder dystocia or brain damage to an infant. The statute of limitation is much longer for injuries to children so if you have an older child who was affected by birth injuries and you didn’t pursue a case earlier, you may still be able to seek answers and compensation. Ask us.
Pregnancy and OB/Gyn Errors: With proper prenatal care, fetal monitoring, and timely C-section if necessary, many types of injuries to mothers and babies can be avoided.
Surgical Errors: Surgical errors can include operating on the wrong body part, nicking nearby organs, and leaving tools or sponges in the body, contributing to later infections.
Failure to Diagnose: Many serious medical conditions are treatable if caught early. A misdiagnosis can lead to wrong treatment or delays in treatment that could prove fatal, especially in the case of some fast growing cancers.
Emergency Room Errors: Failing to obtain a thorough medical history, delays in treatment, failing to diagnose heart attack or stroke are some of the more common types of emergency room errors.
Medication Errors: Too much medication, the wrong medication, and failing to identify drug interactions can cause serious injury or death.
