Is an apology evidence?

Proving a medical malpractice case in Ohio requires the presentation of sufficient evidence. However, the state Supreme Court recently ruled that the state's Apology Statute prohibits a doctor's admission of fault from being considered if the statement was part of an apology for a medical result that was unintended.

Can a hospital be liable in a medical malpractice suit?

When we enter a hospital in Ohio, we expect the medical professionals to treat us with professional care and service. The last thing on our minds should be the thought or potential that we will walk out sicker or more injured than when we entered. Unfortunately, like any industry or business, mistakes can happen. When it comes to medical malpractice however, the mistakes could lead to serious illness, injuries or even, in some cases, death. Can a hospital itself be liable for medical malpractice? The short answer is yes, but it is more complicated than that.

How long does one have to file a medical malpractice claim?

Most people in Ohio would prefer not to have to go to medical professionals. Usually when people need to go to them, it means that they are either sick or injured. However, they are also necessary, in many cases, to ensure that the person will recover from these injuries and illnesses. That is also exactly what people expect when they go to these medical professionals.
