Why Starting Early Is Critical in Surgical Error Cases

In Ohio, there is generally a one year statute of limitations on medical malpractice claims, which generally prohibits plaintiffs from filing medical malpractice lawsuits if more than one year has passed since the date the procedure was done or the date a surgical error was discovered. This statute of limitations makes it critical to contact a lawyer as soon as possible — even if you aren't sure whether or not you have a case.

At The Donahey Law Firm, our Ohio law firm usually reviews medical records and consults with medical experts before filing a lawsuit. Contacting an attorney early on gives you and your attorney time to review the information thoroughly and to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

If more than a year has passed since a surgical error changed your life, it is still wise to contact an attorney. There are many exceptions to the one-year statute of limitations. Depending on your circumstances, you may still be able to file a medical malpractice claim.
