Be on the lookout for these red flags at your hospital or doctor’s
office, and protect yourself against medical malpractice in Ohio, wherever
it may be lurking.
Consider switching doctors if you notice any the following:
failure to answer questions – as a patient, you have the right to ask about any concerns you
have about your diagnosis, condition, treatment, medication, and any options you have;
condition worsens or fails to improve with treatment – medicine is not a precise science and sometimes treatments are
ineffective, but if your treatment isn’t making any difference or
making things worse, it might be time to seek out a second opinion; and
requests are not honored – if you request a certain treatment and don’t receive it,
or if your doctor has dismissed your opinions in any way, it’s time
to get a new doctor.
If you suspect that you have been the victim of
medical malpractice, reach out to an attorney from our Cleveland firm for a
no-cost, no-obligation consultation and to receive an evaluation of your case.
To make the most out of your free consultation, bring copies of your medical
records and write down any questions you have in advance so you can ensure
that they are all answered.
