When a patient is injured or harmed by the negligence of a physician or medical staff, the patient has a right to file a medical malpractice claim against the responsible party. If the case goes to trial, a jury will then hear arguments from both sides before issuing a decision on damages. The Ohio Medical Malpractice Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain that often, a settlement can be reached between the two parties prior to the beginning of a trial.
Take the case of a former Ohio University student who filed suit after claiming the school was responsible for her misdiagnosis at OU’s Hudson Health Center in 2007. The error led to her arm, shoulder, and shoulder blade needing to be amputated because of a flesh-eating bacteria infection.
An article from Athens Ohio Today explains how, in an effort to lay the case to rest, the victim and university came to an agreement that the school would pay $250,000 in damages. The university did not have to admit any liability in the case as part of the settlement as well. The amount that was awarded is in accordance with state law placing a cap on the amount of non-economic damages that can be awarded in a case.
The law firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers is hopeful the settlement will help bring closure to the incident for the victim.
