Cincinnati Medical Malpractice Lawyer
45+ Years Combined Experience
According to the National Academy of Sciences, medical errors injure 1.5
million people annually and cost well in excess of $3.5 billion each year.
Sadly, the overwhelming majority of jury verdicts are in favor of doctors
and hospitals (about 90 percent in Ohio).
These types of cases are expensive and difficult, requiring an understanding
of medicine and the law. Further, an attorney representing doctor malpractice
victims must commit an extraordinary amount of time and money to each
case. Having contacts in the medical community is essential to locating
doctors willing to criticize other doctors.
Work With Highly Experienced Malpractice Attorneys
The lawyers at
The Moore Law Firm have handled many medical cases over decades. As dedicated Cincinnati
medical malpractice attorneys, they have the experience and background
to effectively represent victims of medical errors.
Donald C. Moore, Jr. first started investigating medical malpractice cases as a claims adjuster
for some of the largest hospitals in Cincinnati, back in the 1970s. Since
he began his private practice,
he has only represented the victims in medical malpractice cases. His son,
Daniel N. Moore, clerked for a well-known medical malpractice law firm before he began
working with his father. Our unique background prepares us well for this
type of case, and we are ready to put our skill and experience to work for you.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can occur in a variety of settings, from the doctor's
office to the operating room. Some common types of medical malpractice include:
Administering the wrong dosage of a medication: If an incorrect dosage of
anesthesia or wrong medication is given to a patient, because of errors in communication
between members of a medical staff or even bad handwriting in medical
records, it could result in serious consequences.
Surgical errors: Such as leaving a foreign object like a tool or sponge inside the patient
following the medical procedure, or performing a procedure on the wrong
part of a patient's body.
Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis: If a medical provider overlooks or misidentifies a serious medical condition,
it can delay appropriate medical treatment, making the condition worse
or even resulting in the
death of the patient. Medical professionals sometimes even diagnose diseases the patient does
not have, such as
cancer, causing unwarranted psychological trauma and subjecting the patient to
treatments he or she does not need and that might make a healthy patient
misdiagnosis cases involving children, the resulting trauma can be even more devastating.
