Deciding to pursue compensation in an Ohio
medical malpractice claim is a big step toward putting your life back together following an
illness or injury that stemmed from a physician’s error, which can
attorney can help you prove.

When you start pursuing your claim, you may wonder how exactly your attorney
will prove that your condition was caused by your doctor’s negligence.
While it can be a challenge,experienced attorneys are excellent at collecting
evidence to build a strong case.

Proof in a medical malpractice case can be anything that shows that the
medical practitioner did not provide an acceptable standard of care. This
can mean that the doctor did something wrong (for example prescribed an
incorrect treatment) or did not do something that should have been done
(i.e. following up on a patient after treatment).

To support this, an attorney in a medical malpractice suit often calls
an expert witness.These may be physicians who can explain what a doctor
should do in a particular situation and how the outcome might have been
different had your doctor acted competently.

In addition to proving negligence, you attorney also has to prove that
your physician’s mistake caused you harm. This is usually fairly
easy to do; most malpractice victims suffer a great deal because of the
error and have medical records showing that fact.
