Ohio medical malpractice attorney Chris Mellino, of the Mellino Law Firm, shares how a person can establish a medical malpractice case against a negligent health care professional. Generally, medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional, such as a doctor or nurse, makes an error and causes an injury to a patient. When this happens, the victim of medical malpractice in Ohio needs to prove three things in order to have a successful legal case.
First, you need to prove that the doctor or nurse was negligent and didn’t follow the safety rules that another, more careful doctor would have done in that same situation.
Second, you must prove causation, establishing that the medical professional’s negligence was the cause of your injury.
Third, you have to show that the nature and extent of the damage has caused a disability or permanent injury.
