Serving victims of serious injury and medical malpractice in Trumbull and Mahoning County.

Medical Malpractice

There are not many areas of law more complicated or misunderstood than medical malpractice. An injured party must bring a claim within a certain time frame or the claim is forever lost regardless of its merits. The statute of limitations may be as short as one year after the event or it may extend longer depending on the circumstances. Because the statute of limitations is complicated and will vary on a case by case basis, it is important that an injured party contact a malpractice attorney quickly.

The practice of medicine is extremely complex and a tragic result does not necessarily mean that medical malpractice has occurred. A medical malpractice claim requires proof that a medical professional failed to meet the standard of care of his profession, and that the failure to meet the standard of care directly caused injury to the patient. In Ohio, nearly all medical malpractice claims require the support of one or more qualified physicians to provide expert opinions. These cases are nearly always aggressively defended and expensive to pursue. Moreover, the overwhelming majority of medical malpractice cases that go to trial in Ohio result in verdicts in favor of the defense.

At Martin F. White Co., L.P.A., we have decades of experience evaluating the viability of medical malpractice claims. Our staff includes a full-time nurse and we have access to physicians in multiple fields who assist us in identifying the strengths and weaknesses in your potential claim. Our practice is to advance all costs necessary to determine the merits of potential claims and we do not seek legal fees or reimbursement of expenses unless we are successful in obtaining financial recovery on your behalf.
