Ohio Nursing Malpractice Lawyer
Our Cleveland law firm can demand the justice you deserve for your injury
Nurses provide critical care for patients in hospitals and other medical facilities. That’s why registered nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and other types of nurses undergo years of rigorous medical training.
Unfortunately, nurses sometimes make errors that result in serious injuries or illnesses. Instead of improving a patient’s medical condition, their actions or neglect can cause even worse medical problems. When this happens, negligence may be to blame and individuals may be able to obtain compensation due to medical malpractice.
The Lancione Law Firm can help you explore your legal options. Cleveland medical malpractice attorney John A. Lancione has decades of experience handling such complex legal cases throughout the country. He has a well-earned national reputation for successfully resolving injury claims involving medical negligence. That’s why other lawyers regularly refer such cases to our law firm. They know we can do the job right.
What is nursing malpractice?
Nurses receive specialized medical training to care for sick or injured people. They learn how to monitor patients, how to administer medications, what to do in emergencies and other essential skills.
Nursing malpractice can be any situation in which a nurse is negligent, careless or makes a mistake that results in a serious injury or illness. Examples of nursing malpractice include:
- Not following standard medical protocols when caring for a patient.
- Failure to identify or respond to a medical emergency.
- Medication errors, including giving patients the wrong medication, the wrong dosage amount or not giving a patient their medications.
- Unsanitary conditions, often resulting in a hospital infection.
- Failure to monitor a patient.
- Medical document mistakes, which often result in additional injuries or medical complications due to inaccurate information in a patient’s medical chart.
- Medical equipment errors.
Whatever type of nursing malpractice case you’re dealing with, you can count on our law firm to work with you to build a strong legal case.
Evidence builds strong legal cases. We can help
The key to building a successful nursing malpractice claim involves gathering evidence in support of your case. Our law firm knows how to find the facts that matter. We routinely analyze medical charts, hospital records, inspection reports and other official documents in search of evidence about your injury or illness. We’re also familiar with the rules and regulations that apply to different types of nurses, including:
- Registered Nurse (RN)
- Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
- Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN)
- Emergency Room Registered Nurse
- Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
- Surgical Assistant Registered Nurse
- Home Care Registered Nurse
- Labor and Delivery Nurse
Many allegations of nursing malpractice are investigated by the state agency responsible for licensing nurses. In Ohio, for example, the Ohio Board of Nursing investigates most medical negligence cases involving nurses.
But it’s important to understand that such investigations only concern whether to revoke a nurse’s license due to negligence or failure to follow standard medical protocols. Such investigations are not concerned with whether or not your family is fairly compensated for your medical bills and other injury-related expenses. That’s our job. And we’re ready to get to work for you.
You have rights. We can fight for them. Contact our law firm
The clock is running if you or a loved one was harmed by mistakes made by a nurse. Most states have strict deadlines for taking legal action. In Ohio, injury victims generally only have one (1) year to file a medical malpractice lawsuit or take other legal action from the date of their injury, according to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) § 2305.113(B).
We’re aware of the urgency associated with medical negligence cases. And it’s not just about the deadlines. The longer you wait to take action, the harder it becomes to find the evidence you need to build a successful legal case.
