Ohio’s statute of limitations restricts the amount of time a person injured through the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional can file a claim, so you should contact us as soon as possible if you feel you or a loved one has been harmed through negligent medical care. If you delay, you may lose your right to recover damages. Generally speaking, Ohio law requires a lawsuit alleging medical malpractice to be filed with the court within one year from the date of the negligence. To determine whether malpractice occurred, a court examines all the relevant evidence and decides whether a patient's treatment was below the standard of care met by other Ohio medical professionals with similar training and experience. We have the knowledge to review these factors and settle many of these claims before the necessity of a trial. Please call us for a free consultation today.
